Moved to Patoka Memorial Cemetery
The original Kesterson Cemetery was located in Hall Township, Dubois County.
These are children of Jonathan and Mary Ann (Painter) Kesterson. Sons Alfred and Samuel were killed in the Battle of Perryville
Kentucky, the largest Civil War battle fought in Kentucky. Jonathan
brought his sons home and buried them on the family farm in Hall
Township. George Wilson's "Historical Notes On Dubois County" indicates
a Solomon Kesterson was also buried at the original location, and is so
listed in Dubois County Genealogical Society Cemetery Inscriptions Book
7. The Genealogical Society inscription books were published after the
Patoka Lake affected cemeteries were moved, and prior records were used
where available in order to provide more complete burial information.
