The location of Bentley Cemetery









A visit to the Bentley Cemetery ...

The location of the Bentley Cemetery has been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (ie- the GNIS).<1>

Introduction ...

We have organized the cemeteries in our Gazetteer based on a problem that we had while working on our own genealogy. We found an ancestor that we believed to have been buried in one cemetery was actually buried elsewhere. We discovered that his burial had been refused at the last moment and the family had scrambled to make new arrangements. By looking at nearby cemeteries, the surrounding communities and in newspapers of the period, we were finally able to locate his burial site. Should you find yourself in the same situation, we hope that our Gazetteer helps you discover your lost ancestor.

Footnotes ...

<1>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.

- Return to Citation

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- ) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point at the Bentley Cemetery. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.4006, Longitude: -83.0493     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for the Bentley Cemetery have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<3>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or gone without an obvious trace.

- Return to Citation

<4>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.
