Directions to cemetery: Going south on US Hwy 60 from Henderson, KY, turn left on Hwy 135 East which is the first light in Corydon, KY. Go approximately 2 and one half miles to Hughes Sights Road. (135 curves to the right, Hughes Sights Road goes straight and begins at that curve) Take Hughes Sights Road for approximately two miles to Rock Springs Dixie Road. Turn Right. Go approximately one fourth mile and cemetery in on the right on the hill

The Gibson Family Cemetery is a small cemetery outside of Corydon, Kentucky. We were only there once, back in the summer of 1976. There was no gate or formal entrance that we can remember, and the little cemetery was in terrible shape. My husband mowed one day, and the following day we went back to write down all of the inscriptions that we could read on the tipped over and worn stones.

We contacted a cousin, Jan Gibson, to take our records back to the cemetery in 1981, so as to confirm and make corrections to the dates, etc as we had written them. We recognize her for her efforts.

We do not have any access to plot records, burial records or death records, and the following is taken as best as we could from the stones themselves and nothing more. Surnames are alphabetized, and we made every effort to group families together. Our living relatives there now are elderly and incapable of keeping up the cemetery, and we have no idea if it is being mowed or anything. We are trying to remedy this situation by next summer. This little cemetery would be a good candidate for the Cemetery Restoration Project going on in America now.
