INDEPENDENT RESEARCH SITE OF:
Wagers Graveyard / Scrivner Cemetery / Brinegar Cemetery
now known as the Wagers-Brinegar Cemetery
Estill County, Kentucky
Located in Wagersville on South Irvine Road - Highway 89

 

       

 

My name is David Shannon and I am sharing research information I have gathered based on family memories and information gathered from actual tombstones.   Most information gathered is directly from the gravestones at the Wagers-Brinegar Cemetery on Highway 89 in rural Estill County, Kentucky.  This area is known as Wagersville.   My great-great-great-grandfather is James Wagers and his son Sidney David (S. D.) Wagers & his wife Emeline Park Wagers would be my great-great-grandparents. They are the parents of my great-grandmother Alice Wagers who married Thomas Henderson of Red Lick Road in Estill County. Thomas and Alice are buried on Red Lick Road at the Henderson Family Graveyard. There are several other connections to me at the Wagers-Brinegar Cemetery including Thomas Henderson's sister, Chrisellen Henderson Scrivner and her husband William Anderson Scrivner. My purpose is two-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.  If you have records that show someone is buried at this cemetery, but not on my listing, please contact me.  I can be contacted at this link:

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

I appreciate the help of Norwood Thorpe with the Estill County Historical and Genealogical Society (HCHGS).  Their site provides extensive information on the history of Estill County, Kentucky. They also have a "Pictorial History Book" containing 400 pages, with 1,428 photos of Estill County.
The book is available from the HCHGS for $59.95, plus $7.00 if ordered by mail.

Death Certificates shown are available from  "Kentucky Death Records, 1852 - 1957".

Death Certificates are a good source for additional information. Most include birth date, death date, parents name, cause of death, residence at time of death, and other information. There are mistakes on grave inscriptions as well as mistakes on Death Certificates. It is always good to check both items for information.
