Big Rock is one of my favorite cemeteries to visit, although I have very few actual family members buried theree, it's solemn beauty and memories I visit it a few times every month. My introduction to Big Rock was brought about by my in-laws living at the base of the hill behind the cemetery and they took care of the cemetery for several years. I can remember helping my father-in-law move dirt from a grave there in the mid 1970's and on a few occasions I helped cut grass around the stones with a butcher knife, as this was in the days before the ever popular weed-eaters. Often, when we had family gatherings, a group of us would walk up to the cemetery after a large meal and just wander around admiring the stones and just enjoying each other's company. On these pages I will attempt to list all the persons buried in the cemetery, with the help of a cemetery book written by Bill and Dorothy Williams. If you see a name in blue you should be able to click on it to gain further information, such as pictures of the stones, people, obituaries or short stories. This will be a work in progress and more information and pictures will be added soon, if you have any information that I could add to these pages send it and I will add it to the proper person. I hope you enjoy your visit here and find something of use.

Big Rock Church and cemetery, located about a quarter mile south of Hiway 52, approx. 3 miles west of Barnett; 9 miles east of Versailles. As you leave the main Highway and cross the railroad tracks, there is a pasture on the left, and an undeveloped piece of land on the right. The cemetery is located on the left side of the road across from a house. The road turns left at the end of the cemetery and the Church and cemetery are separated by this road. The cemetery is well taken care of and there are still burials taking place in the cemetery.
