Prescott Pike Cemetery (North Middletown, KY)

The land for the cemetery was sold in 1894 by Mary and Charles Meng to the cemetery trustees: Dave Biddle, Thomas Ransom, Aaron Kenney, Harvey Wess, and George Lindsey. The cemetery, then known as the North Middletown Colored Cemetery, was located on Prescott Turnpike Road in North Middletown, KY. Today it is known as the Prescott Pike Cemetery. The committee that cares for the property includes Betty Mae Black, Michell Butler, and three great-grandchildren of Thomas Ransom, Nancy Brown Kenney, Dorothy Reed Royce, and Thomas Howard Butler.
