RE: Benjamin Franklin Caldwell, Edward Curtis Caldwell
Directions: From Shepherdsville take highway 61 south turn left onto highway 245 take 245 over the interstate follow it until you get to Bernheim Forest on the right. Turn right into Bernheim Forest when you get to the first intersection turn left onto Visitor Center Drive follow it all the way around pass the visitor center to the next intersection turn right on to Arboretum way toward the main gate follow it around turn left into Sun and Shade Loop. The cemetery is 10 to 15 yards to the right of the parking area in an open area with signs in circling it.

RE: Benjamin Franklin Caldwell, Edward Curtis Caldwell
Mr. Brantley

To be honest with you the cemetery is in bad condition and I will tell you what I was told. A person who has worked for Bernheim for years says that what stones are there are not in there original position. According to my source several decades ago the cemetery was removed and the stones were store in a warehouse until one day family member came looking for the cemetery. After that they decided they better put it back. They supposedly put them back where the cemetery was but there was no way to put the stones in their original position. The stones I placed on findagrave are the only ones there are. As you could see in the photos they are broken and incomplete. To answer you question about the death date on Edwards stone the stone was either made well after his death and the engraver was given the wrong date or when the stones were replaced the pieces were not match up right. If you don't mind please do not share this story with anyone else. What Bernheim did was bed but it happen years ago and the folks who run it now and work there are good folks. I don't want this to reflect on them.

RE: James Francis Strader
Hi Perry
unfortunately have no other info. His image came in a group of others from family, and I'm really about posting and preserving an image if identified such as James. I see he was in 2nd KY Cavalry and died in war, but don't know of his circumstances around death. Do you?
