Cemetery snippit – the Judy graveyard

March 31, 2009

From The Page News & Courier, Friday 20 Jul 1928:

“SOME MORE OLD TIMERS AROUND HONEYVILLE” (in the Jacob’s Well column)

Some of the old slave colored people are sleeping in this old graveyard. Old uncle Mat Ford, wife and daughter sleep there. In the South corner of the graveyard is the dust of a Union soldier that was killed by Katie Judy in 1863. We have never heard much about this unknown soldier.”

Location: “about one mile Southeast of Honeyville, near Honey Run.”

    Noah Thornton is my great, great grandfather and I am so proud to be a part of his lineage. This piece of history revealed additional information that my 80 year old father C. Lee Thornton, Jr. and I didn’t know about this Union Soldier. Thank you! :-)
