Amos I. Goodman Cemetery
(aka Charlie Goodman Cemetery)
Munfordville, Hart Co., KY

Amos I. Goodman and his 1st wife, Sarah (Conway) Goodman, came to Hart, then Barren Co., from Greene Co., TN about 1806/7. Sarah died or they divorced ca 1809/10, and Amos I. Goodman remarried in 1810, just before Barren Co. was split to form Hart Co., to Mourning Jones, of Madison Co. This cemetery contains the graves of Amos and Mourning, its oldest burials, and many of their descendants and in-laws. Stephen Goodman, a brother of Amos, is buried in the Polston Cemetery, Hart Co.

This family cemetery is still in use and well kept. It sits on what remains of the Amos I. Goodman farm, and immediately adjacent to his original house, since modernized and well maintained, and still owned by his descendants. The original logs are now covered over by siding. Near the house are the remains of the blacksmith shop of his son, Amos Moore Goodman. The house may be in the process of restoration to it original log structure, on its way to becoming as a historic site.

From Louisville, take I65 South to the Perryville / Munfordville exit. From Nashville, take I65 north to the Munfordville exit. Proceed east to Munfordville Town Center. From Munfordville Town Center, drive 1.4 mi. north to the cemetery, on the right side of the road next to the historic old Amos Goodman house.
