1967 Grave Re-Interment in Pewee Valley Cemetery East
This 1967 plat was created by Stoess Funeral Home when they received state funds to relocate a black cemetery in I-71’s path to Pewee Valley Cemetery East.
The plat shows the old and new burial locations of about 33 African-Americans who were once buried in a family plot located on the south bank of the South Fork of Harrods Creek on the Clore Brothers' farm. According to the plat, the last burials in the cemetery were made in the 1920s-1930s.
The surnames of the individuals re-interred in Pewee Valley Cemetery East included Johnson, Kellar and Dorsey. The remains are now located along the fence line fronting Maple Avenue.
Thanks to Oldham County Clerk Julie Barr for providing this plat to the Pewee Valley Historical Society.
