Gates Cemetery
On a knoll at the west end and north side of the Obed [Obey] River bridge on the Stone and Gates farm Ð Celina.

I am looking for the location of this cemetery and see what condition it is in. This cemetery has my great-great-grandparents
in it with only a few other graves.

Please e-mail me at nevinsmt@gmail.com with any information.

Thanks!!

The updated Clay County Cemeteries Vol II Cemeteries East of Cumberland River says about Gates Cemetery:

Located in Celina. From East Lake Avenue turn onto Theater Drive. Cemetery is on right side of street behind a business building located there. Completely overgrown. Could not walk through it.

There were 5 gravestones in it and 2 field stones and at least 6 other unmarked graves. This book was copyrighted by the Clay County Genealogical Committee in 2007. This information would have come from Walter Webb's cemetery book finished in the mid-seventies. He was pleased to have his work updated and gave permission for its use, but died before they were done.
