Grant Family Cemetery
Also known as Clark Cemetery
John E. Grant was born 1830 in Montgomery Co., Tn.; married Nancy Jane Kistner, born 1838 in Floyd Co., Ky. John E. Grant migrated to Christian Co. in the middle 1800's and bought a farm in northern Christian Co. On this farm is what I call the Grant Family Cemetery. It is located on Hwy 109 about 7 or 8 miles north of Hopkinsville on what was the Johnson farm when visited in 1985. It sets on the east side of Hwy 109 about one hundred yards. It is only about a mile or so until 109 meets with Hwy 813. The cemetery is fenced in with trees growing out of it and can be seen from the highway setting in a pasture. This is the best description I can give.
There are a number of sunken graves with only sandstones for markers. The following is what I recorded in 1985. It has been said there are two Cherokee Indians buried directly across the highway, part of the Trail of Tears that came through the area going to Princeton, Caldwell Co., Ky., where others are buried.
