Tombstone Tuesday - Roberts/Old Freedom Cemetery

Roberts/Old Freedom Cemetery is located in Rockcastle County, Kentucky on Freedom School Road which is off of Hwy 150 just west of the intersection with Hwy 461 in Mt. Vernon. (The GPS coordinates for the cemetery are 372025.264N - 0842328.872W.)

My 2nd great-grandparents, Matt and Celia Owens, are buried in this cemetery along with other Owens and Mullins relatives. The list below is not a complete cemetery inventory but is simply a list of the markers I have photographed. Links are to those photos.

Wesley Alfred Owens (Matt & Celia's son)
William L. and Wilmoth Lofton Owens (Matt's brother)
George Calvin Owens (Wm. L. & Wilmoth's son)
Harriett Herrell Owens (George C.'s wife)
Ardora Owens Cummins (Wm. L. & Wilmoth's daughter)
Marshall and Nancy Jane Mullins Owens (Wm. L. & Wilmoth's son)
Montie Owens (George & Harriett's daughter)
Walter Owens (George & Harriett's son)
George Mason Owens (Marshall & Nancy's son)
Mollie A. Hamm Owens (Marshall & Nancy's daughter-in-law)
Burton "Dock" Owens (son of Burton & Lavincy Riggs Owens)
Malvina Collyer Owens (Dock's wife)
Robert, Jasper & Eva Owens (Dock & Malvina's children)
Bluford H. Cummins (husband of Mary Frances Mullins)

Instead of posting individual tombstones each week, I've decided to feature a cemetery once or twice a month. I'll set up photo galleries for each cemetery at SmugMug and also add the tombstone photos to Find A Grave (if there isn't one already posted there).
