|Andrew Martin Kolstee||RE: Re: Curtis Wheeler|
Okay. Hopefully they will respond this time because they didn't get any of my messages I sent in the past few years.
|Andrew Martin Kolstee||Re: Curtis Wheeler|
I am aware that there is a duplicate of Curtis Wheeler. The original memorial from 2008, I contacted the manager several times and there has been no response. I also contacted Find A Grave staff, and I have not yet recieved a response, so I created a new one to put all the information up and connect him to his family. If I get any response in the future, it will be taken care of.

Yes, there are still burials there. My husband has a cousin who is still living who is a widow for a few years now, and she will one day be buried in the same grave with her husband.

I sure wish they could decide on the correct name for this cemetery. They are one in the same. My husband's family for the most part are all buried there, and it has always been called Vine Hill since we married in 1961 and I am sure long before that. My mother in law was the next door neighbor of Duke Tunnel who is referred to in this article. Her brother worked as a carpenter for Burnheim Forest. I am attaching some information I acquired about the cemetery as well as the phone number of the chuch that sits behind it. I hope this all helps.

In a very rare opportunity, I was able to spend some time away from my desk and found exactly what I went
after. What follows is the result of finding a very little known group of grave sites that provides a
response to a respectable Texas lady looking for roots in Bullitt County history.
First is the identity of the cemetery in question. Referred to as Clermont Cemetery that is located at
the Jim Beam Distillery on Hwy 245, it is recorded in the Bullitt County Library in a publication by Mike
Troutman. Information can be obtained via email to the BCPL Reference Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org. The road
is Happy Hollow Road and the cemetery is less than one-half mile on the left off the main highway as you
drive through the distillery. Can't miss it! There is a brick church next to the cemetery
with a placard inscribed with:
Clermont Baptist Church
Rev Paul C. Doss, Pastor
The correct name, according to the Vine Hill Church, whom are the owners, is Vine Hill Cemetery. Being
one in the same. What is less known is the original cemetery started another several hundred yards back
on the ridge as early as 1827, the earliest year of burial as I recorded. There is a gravel
road (Vine Hill Road) along the left side that leads to a dead end where there are several more graves
being the original site of the cemetery. I spoke with Mr. Bessell Duke Tinnell (he is 84 years old and
called "Duke") who is related one way or the other to most of the ancestors in that area.
His grandfather is buried in the Troutman (also known as O'Reilly) Cemetery near Hobbs, KY, a few miles
east. Parents, Cousins, Aunts and Uncles are buried all around Vine Hill. Duke mentioned he was born in
1915 and extended a kind invitation to return and discuss the area history. He seemed to know
a great deal about the Bernheim Foundation and the previous families that farmed it before Isaac Bernheim
bought it for a nature preserve in 1927.
The original site is what most folk would prefer to view as a front yard area where the grass is cut and
kept free of underbrush. There are a few residents in this cauldesac. A few of the headstones are in
small brush clusters but accessible. There are approximately seven stone markers that cannot be
identified. Two are made of sandstone and the information is weathered completely away, but these
headstones are in remarkable shape for age. Most of the headstones have some inscription and most are
readable and will require an expert handler to transcribe. A few stones are broken and
one is engulfed by a tree trunk. All in all, the following data is a blessing considering the age of
this plot. The cemetery appears to be cir. 1827 to 1950; (see Brashear-Warden).
This data is transcribed exactly as I read it and provided here as certifiable in this text. I hope this
information will help our families and friends wherever they may be today. A young Beagle playfully kept
me company on this trek. It was an enjoyable experience. A little rushed for time but I had fun.
