(Hodgenville map, Section 17-M-47 Carter coordinates, about 1000 feet
west of the east line) The cemetery is located on the northeast side
of highway 210, about one half mile off the road. It is in the Jerico
section of Larue County. This farm was once the property of Martin H.
Dye, who married Mary Timberlake. Martin and Mary are believed buried
there with fieldstones, as was their son, Joseph M. Dye. An obituary
for Joseph M. Dye states, "Mr. Joe M. Dye of Jericho, reported
to be the oldest man in Larue County, has passed away at the age of
95 years and 29 days. Mr. Dye’s father came from Tennessee and his mother
from Virginia. He was born in Hart County, but spent most of his life
in Larue." (Not shown on topographic maps) The cemetery is on the
east side of McDougal Creek, at the end of a gravel road.
