"GILEAD" in Fleming County, Kentucky
According to my father in Indianapolis, many of my ancestors are buried in the "old Colored cemetery" called Gilead in Fleming County, Kentucky. It is a very old cemetery. As I understand it, back in the 1960's, in order to visit it, you had to take a sickle with you, in order to clear the overgrowth. I live in Nevada now. Can you tell me how I would find a listing of who is buried there, short of making the trip and physically looking for grave markers?
