Mike Watson:
Old burial place should carry Pioneer Cemetery designation

By Mike Watson

The Stephen White cemetery, which should be designated as a Pioneer Cemetery of Kentucky, is indeed located on what was previously the Estil Ballou farm; the original settlement area of the Stephen and Thomas White families.

It can still be seen from the highway only by finding the few trees that are in and around it on the hill above and to the right of the house.

Stephen White, Sr. was an ancestor of mine and many of his descendants would love to restore the cemetery in the near future. Much research has been done on this family; they were very active in Adair politics and her history.
The writer of this brief article Mike Watson, is Adair County's foremost historian and is the author of many books on Adair County History and Genealogy -EW
