My name is David Shannon and I am from Lexington, Kentucky.  I am sharing pictures I have taken at the Lemmon Family Cemetery in Harrison County Kentucky.  This cemetery is located off of highway 36 between Cynthiana and Williamstown near the area known as Renaker.  This is located on a farm and barely visible from highway 36.  I have traced my family roots back to Isaac and Margaret Lemmon Conrad who are buried at this site.  I give permission to use and copy any of the information you may find helpful on this page. There may be mistakes!!  Please help me correct any that you find.

My purpose is 2-fold.  I hope if you are searching and find this site it is helpful to you...  And if you can provide more information of my family history, please contact me.  I can be contacted at this link:

                      Thanks,                                                          e-mail for David Shannon

I am also working on several other cemetery sites:
the Conrad Cemetery in Grant Co., Kentucky,
the Antioch Church Cemetery in Franklin Co., Kentucky,
the Old Union Christian Church Cemetery in Fayette Co., Kentucky,
and the Henderson Cemetery and the Wagers-Brinegar Cemetery in Estill, Co., Kentucky.

I appreciate the help of  Anne H. Lee, with the Harrison County, Kentucky GenWeb website.
She has provided some of the information included on this site.  She has compiled a nearly complete listing of graves from the Lemmon Cemetery.
