Overbey Cemetery, Robertson Co, KY

Located in south-central Robertson County, this Overbey family cemetery is not in very good shape. It is in an unprotected field and all the stones have been moved and piled near the one standing monument.

The big monument is Henry Harvey Overbey's marker. In 2 pieces is a separate stone for his wife:

Mar. 9, 1814
June 30, 1893

Polly's father John Conway, Jr. was a RevWar soldier and was captured at Ruddles Station in 1780.

There are also two markers for infant son and daughter of N.P. and E. Overbey. These would have been Henry and Polly Conway's grandchildren:

Although I had been told that this cemetery also contained Nathaniel Perry Overbey, Seth Curtis, Jane Curtis, Job Curtis and Margery Curtis, I found no stones indicating these names. There were other illegible stones that might have been these.

My appreciation to my cousins Wendell and Carroll Curtis for their extensive Overbey research.
