Letter: Has visited Brawner-Smith Cemetery

Genna Vinson Twomey writes:
I have been to the Brawner Smith Cemetery. Larry & Elanor Brawner from Elizabethtown took me there. They saw the cemetery last Spring (2021) and the stones were in the ground. Are they still there?

Wyatt Smith 1803-1854 set aside 1 acre for a cemetery. He was married to Elizabeth Brawner 1804-1863.

John Brawner 1863-1843 and his wife Ann 1765-1852 are probably buried there. They had a large farm on Liberty Road KY 206. Ann Brawner lived with Wyatt Smith & Elizabeth Brawner according to 1850 census when she died. Ann was Elizabeth's mother.
Comments re: Query received: Wants information on Brawner-Smith Cemetery

Note: We found some other replies to the original inquiry, and updated the article with links. Especially useful is this one from Edwin Rogers, which includes several photos: Brawner-Smith Cemetery is off Pelly Lane on Linda Taylor farm.
