Twelve Mile Creek KY
Posted January 16, 2018, by Joyce MacKay (jomac44 [at] sbcglobal [dot] net)

I have an ancestor who in 1799 was supposedly buried on an island at the mouth of 12 Mile Creek and the Ohio River. I have heard that the island is no longer there, having been swept away during a flood. Do you have any information about this island and was there a cemetery located there? Thanks for any information you may have.
