Keown Cemetery

On the farm of Ellis Chinn, mailing address 448 Cook Ln Cromwell, KY 42333
Ellis Chinn is not related to the people buried in the cemetery and therefore does not keep the cemetery up. He says if there are any relatives to those buried in the cemetery and they contact him, he may keep the cemetery in better condition.

Directions: Turn E onto 505 (only one direction to get there from) off of 231 between Cromwell and the Butler County line. Left if coming from Cromwell, Right if coming from Butler County line. Pass through Select, and turn left on the first street past a bridge (over a stream) called Cook Lane. Continue up Cook Lane and turn in at Ellis Chinn Residence, 448 Cook Lane. Two electric fences are between his house/road and the cemetery. Inquire at the house before going up to the cemtery. Cemetery is extremely overgrown and animals are only partially kept out.

Graves located and survey photographed on May 31, 2006 by Alice Warner, accompanied by Glen and Kathleen Warren; outside knowledge is included in the fourth column in brackets [[example]]

There were many graves marked only with fieldstones, no engravings.
