Burial
Location: go up Four Mile Hollow just before the Ivy Grove Church. Road turns to the right take it. Cemetery is behind the first house on left on the hill. Has bad dogs. I remember this very small cemetery located in Fourmile Hollow, Bell County, Ky. The Acuff farm is situated directly across from the old grave yard. My great-grandmother Mollie Hendrickson-Acuff's house still stands near-by. My grandparents were Floyd and Grace Carnes-Acuff. My Aunt Preta Acuff Campbell is living there now.I remember as child my mother Betty Jean Acuff and I would walk to vist Ms. Lily Gambrell, who lived a few yards down past the grave yard on the right.
