Re: African American Cemetary in Paducah, KY

Yes there is an African American Cemetery on Pool Rd. in Paducah,. My family owned it. It was called the Jones Cemetery. There is no record of it anywhere. Many of the tomb stones are overturned and pushed back to a corner. A member of the family bought a mobile home in to the cemetery and pushed the tomb stones back to make room for the mobile home. My great grandfather, a Civil War Veteran, died in 1917. Name William Jones. His wife is also buried there Surrilda or Serilda Jones. The cemetery is located on one side of my cousin's house at 3070 pool Rd. There is another Black cemetery in back of Rocky Ford Church on pool Rd.
