Brown/Wilson Cemetery, Clay County, Kentucky

The entrance to the cemetery is located one quarter to one half mile past Goose Creek on Fork Field Road. There is a cattle gate where the cemetery road goes to the right up the hill. Make a right turn at the cattle gate and proceed up the hill. Where the road forks, keep to the left and continue up the hill to another cattle gate. This will bring you out on a plateau with the cemetery slightly to your left in the open field overlooking Red Bird River.

To date there are thirty two graves. The oldest birth date is W. H. Brown – 10-21-1819. The oldest burial date is W. H. Brown – January 20,1897.
