    I was enlisted by the Kentucky Historical Society to identify a photo of an abandoned cemtery: markers are on the ground and broken. On the back is written Pennington Cem Dec. 1984 There is a body of water in the background.

    Any ideas on the identity of this cemetery?

    Hi Ann,

    Is the cemetery in Danville, Boyle Co., KY?  Where exactly is the location?  I realize there are a little under 25 cemeteries in KY with the Pennington name.

    I've noticed the Kentucky Gene. Soc. has really be proactive with the cemeteries there in KY.  I love it!  I wish all state Gene. Soc. were so active.  You guys are lucky.

    We may have a transcription of the cemetery if you provide exact location.  Thanks.  Melinda Pennington

    The black & white photo has no other information than,on the back, "Pennington Cem. Dec. 1984." I'm not too "swift" when it comes to technology, but how could I scan it and post it? Maybe that would help with identification? Ann

    Ann,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Can you scan and email to me and I will look through the information I have and see if I can identify it.  My email is mgp383@gmail.com

    Emailing to me would probably be the easiest.  I will check my resources here and we'll do our best at identification.

    Question:  the date on the back of photograph is throwing me off.  Does it look like the picture was taken December 1984 or does the sign look like it was put up in December 1984?  What do you think?

    Thanks, Melinda

    Ann, If the cemetery is in Jackson County, I have a person in Annville who can help.  There is also someone in Corbin that can help.  The Laurel County Historical Society in London has some superb people.  They should be able to help you also.
    Send me an email through this PRA members website and I can give you the people's email address and possibly their phone number.

The three words on the scroll of the Coats of Arms are "Vincit amor patriae"

"Vincit amor patriae" means "The love of my country prevails" or "Love of Country Conquers" which is the United States Army 28th Infantry Regiment's motto.   "Vincent amor patriae laudumque immensa cupido" means "The love of my country exceeds everything."

The following motto appears in English above the mountain cat of the original Baron Muncaster Crest.  "Firm, Vigilant, Active" -Virg. AEn. vi. 823 v. Muncaster b. Pennington
