Scenic Adair Co., KY: Tarter Road, District 4, near Gradyville, KY

2009-08-17 - Greater Gradyville, KY - Photo by Shamarie Claiborne.
"Aunt Norma Jean Parnell gave me a guided tour of Tarter Road. It is one the prettiest drives in Adair County," writes Shamarie Claiborne. "Along the way, we saw a beautiful swinging bridge, then drove up the winding hill past the old Tarter farm, where the vine covered chimney on a rustic cottage still stands, left picture, an old smoke house is right by the side of the road, center, and at '40 Plum' Tarter Road - 'forty hills over and plum nelly to the end of the road,' as Aunt Norma Jean says, is the old Tarter Cemetery (officially 1100 Tarter RD, according to Adair Co. Address Coordinator Mary Allender.)" They were on a Hamlett family hadj to visit and pay homage to the ancester from whom the clan sprung from in these parts. They found, right the burial place of Civil War soldier R.H. Hamlett. R.H. Hamlett (1836 -April 10, 1903) was married twice. His first wife died childless. But his second wife was the mother of four Hamlett sons, the forebears of all of the present day Adair County Hamletts.
