Legends try to explain mystery behind old grave in Shepherdsville, Kentucky

Posted by admin on May 6, 2009

A short drive behind the Best Western hotel on Lakeview Drive in Shepherdsville, next to Interstate 65 and some apartments, lies a grave.

Not much is known about the person buried there besides a few newspaper articles and the legends, which tell of a young couple who met at the old Paroquet Springs resort in the early to mid-1800s and planned to marry but never did because the young man died in the Mexican-American War.

The heroine of the tale died of a broken heart and was buried where their love began.

After a wrought iron fence that surrounded the nameless grave was destroyed when the land was cleared in 2007, Strange and members of the Bullitt County Genealogical Society’s cemetery documentation team began restoring the gravesite, which is on private land.
