      Samuel Oldham burial ground is one mile south of Boulevard and west of Preston St. Road, in Jefferson County, Kentucky. Also buried there are Oldham Conway; Thomas Prince, Worden Pope, Fanny Oldham

      The small cemetery on the Kentucky State Fair midway is all but lost in the shadows of its raucous surroundings.

      Screams from the towering red "Hellavator" ride and other nearby attractions mingle at dusk with the flicker of neon lights across graves dating to the early 1800s.

      The Samuel Oldham Burial Ground must be among the most oddly situated graveyards in the state.

      Fate's poetic symbolism in a giant sliding board that bottoms out a few feet from the graveyard's gate is lost on the line of wide-eyed youngsters and giggling adults who wait to climb the steps to careen down the long slide for a few thrilling seconds.

      Many who notice the historic cemetery rarely take time to read the inscription on the front of the marker nearest the entrance of its shaded quarter-acre enclosure:
      "Oldham Family Cemetery -- Samuel Oldham, 31 Oct. 1749 -- 31 Jan. 1823."

      His wife, Ann Lipscomb Oldham, is also named on the marker, along with a passage from Samuel Oldham's will: "I further give and bequeath forever a space not exceeding two acres of land whereon I now reside so as to include the present burying ground, a place of inturment (sic) not only for the white part of my family, but also for the black."

      The back of the marker contains the names of many of those buried in the cemetery, as many as 22 by some accounts. In addition to the Oldhams, they include relations by the names Herr, Mercer, Powers, Taylor and Thomas, many of whom helped settle the Louisville area.

      Oldham County was named for Samuel Oldham's brother, Col. William Oldham.

      Historians say that Samuel Oldham's plantation once encompassed what now is the land occupied by the fairgrounds, Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom and perhaps several surrounding properties.

      The cemetery was fenced in 1981 when work began on a permanent midway at the fairgrounds. Vandals and time have damaged several of the stones, but the family has had several repaired and one new marker erected.

      Confusion over deed restrictions and complaints from relatives of those buried in the cemetery prevented the graves from being relocated in 1995.


      Jefferson County Estates p. 56 Oldham, Samuel - To his wife, Ann Oldham; to son, William; to son, Conway; son, Harry's wife; to daughter, Sarah Merriwether; to daughter, Nancy Taylor; to daughter, Patsy; to daughter, Winny Mercer; daughter, Elizabeth, wife of Levi Tyler; to daughter, Amelia, wife of Charles L. Harrison; to Mary E. Powers in trust, Ex.; Conway Oldham, son, Levi Tyler, son-in-law. Sept 4, 1820. Probated Feb. 10, 18 23.

      Samuel left his son, Conway trustee for several of his married daughters and his son Henry (in whom he seems to have had but little confidence.) That is my Henry, the one "Papa Samuel doesn't have much confidence in". From what else I have gathered, Henry was a Dr. in Bullitt County, but I don't have a listing for any children but Henrietta for Henry and his wife, Eliza McClelland (Bullitt County Kentucky Marriages 1797 to 1830). They were married 26 August 1808. Sure would like to find more children. Katherine

      Major Abraham Kirkpatrick & His Descendents-Kirk Q. Bigham
      " from the deed records at Martinsburg, Berkeley County, W. Virginia, I learn that the Samuel Oldham who was deputy sheriff, tax collector, etc., there bought three tracts of land in 1773, 1775 and 1777. These he s old in 1779, 1780 and.neords after that date, that being the year when he removed to Kentucky."

      "Berkeley County was formed in 1772 out of Frederick County, Virginia. In the Frederick County Court deed records at Winchester, Virginia, V ol XV, pages 77 and 78, under date of August 5th & 6th, 1770, there is a deed from "Samuel Oldhamyirginia, son and Heir-at-law of John Oldham, late of the County of Prince William, deceased," to Christian Grove of the same county, conveying a certain tract of land in Frederick County (Formerly Augusta), containing 400 acres "the same being granted to the said John Oldham, deceased, by deed from under the hand and seal of the Right Honorable Thomas Lord Fairfax, proprietor" "Bearing date the 24th day of November, 1752."

      "Judge John Pope Oldham was from 33-38 years old when his aunt, Susan Ross and his uncle, Samuel Oldham, died. They had been near neighbors of his from about the date of his birth and he knew them well. I think, therefore, it was reasonst-Colonel William Oldham, was brother to Samuel Oldham and Conway Oldham, Mrs. Neville, Mrs. Kirkpatrick and Mrs. Ross, and Probably Mrs. Lyle also.

      "Samuel and William Oldham and their sister, Mrs. Ross, came to Kentucky from Berkeley County, Virginia (now West Virginia), and whilst I have no absolute identification of the Samuel Oldham of Frederick County, Virginia, in 1770, with them, in 1773 to 1784, he could very readily have been the same without even changing his residence, since Berkeley County was formed from Frederick in 1772, and I feel that it is not unwarranted assumption to class them as one and the same individual, in which assumption local historians agree with me.

      Jeanne W. Jackson 1986 notes:
      1) from the Pension Office at Washington, D.C.(Bounty Land Claim #50 3) this Samuel Oldham was the "heir at law of Conway Oldham" who was killed at the battle of Eutaw Springs, South Carolina in 1781 and that same Samuel Oldham was living,uch 1807. It is believed he is the same Samuel Oldham who purchased lands in Berkley County, Virginia (now W. Virginia) in 1773, 1775 and 1777 and sold them in 1779, 1780 and 1784 and who was Deputy Sheriff in that County at or about 1784-85. Samuel Oldham moved from to Kentucky and settled near Louisville where he took the oath as Magistrate of Jefferson County, Virginia (now Kentucky) in August 1787 and died in 1823 leaving a will of record in Louisville. Samuel Oldham's sister, Susannah married Lawrence Ross of Fauquier County, Virginia removed to Kentucky and also settled near Louisville, one of whose daughters, Fanny married Conway Oldham (her first cousin) in December 1800.

      Jeanne W Jackson notes 1986: gives birth date 30 Nov 1749

      There is an Oldham Oldham buried in the same cemetery, d. 1822 age 66 - could be a grandchild.

      R.C. Ballard Thurston 1899 notes: moved to Jefferson County, Virginia (now Kentucky) where the old minute book shows that he took his oath of office as Magistrate August 7, 1787 and appeared as security for his brother William Oldham, who had been appointed sheriff on Sep 3, 1786. He married at Louisville, Kentucky, but such records do not anti-date 1784. He left a will on record at Louisville dated Sep 4, 1820, a codicil to which is dated Jan 23, 1823, probated Feb 10, 1823, and recorded in will book 2, page 214, in which he mentions his wife Ann, and all his children except John, the husband of each of his daughters and his son Henry in whom he seems to have had but little confidence. He therefore died early in 1823. Samuel Oldham married first Jane Cunningham and had one child.

      Filson Papers: "Samuel Oldham became a deputy sheriff of Berkley County, Virginia in 1772 when it was formed out of Frederick, and after his removal to the West, a Justice of Jefferson County in 1787, an officer in the county militia, and an early trustee of the first publicly supported school in Louisville, the Jefferson Seminary.
      "Handsome portraits of Samuel and Ann survive as does the Oldham family graveyard where they and other members of their family are buried, now surrounded by the Kentucky State Fairgrounds. They could count among their descendants a numberdentieth century captain of industry, Tom Mercer Girdler, who was President Of Republic Steel (born Silver Creek Township, Clark County, Indiana 1877; died Easton, Maryland, 1965).
      "Alexander Hamilton letter to Adam S Stephens, May 1, 1784 (manuscript Collection Library, The Filson Club, Louisville, Kentucky), complains that he had just heard that "Mr. Oldham has gone over the mountains," and he owes Hamilton money.
      "He removed to Kentucky in 1784 and settled near Louisville, Kentucky ."

      Elsie Heiman notes: Removed to Kentucky 1784 settled near Lousiville and died in 1823.

      The small cemetery on the Kentucky State Fair midway is all but lost in the shadows of its raucous surroundings.

      Screams from the towering red "Hellavator" ride and other nearby attractions mingle at dusk with the flicker of neon lights across graves dating to the early 1800s.

      The Samuel Oldham Burial Ground must be among the most oddly situated graveyards in the state.

      Fate's poetic symbolism in a giant sliding board that bottoms out a few feet from the graveyard's gate is lost on the line of wide-eyed youngsters and giggling adults who wait to climb the steps to careen down the long slide for a few thrilling seconds.

      Many who notice the historic cemetery rarely take time to read the inscription on the front of the marker nearest the entrance of its shaded quarter-acre enclosure:

      "Oldham Family Cemetery -- Samuel Oldham, 31 Oct. 1749 -- 31 Jan. 1823."
      His wife, Ann Lipscomb Oldham, is also named on the marker, along with a passage from Samuel Oldham's will: "I further give and bequeath forever a space not exceeding two acres of land whereon I now reside so as to include the present burying ground, a place of inturment (sic) not only for the white part of my family, but also for the black."

      The back of the marker contains the names of many of those buried in the cemetery, as many as 22 by some accounts. In addition to the Oldhams, they include relations by the names Herr, Mercer, Powers, Taylor and Thomas, many of whom helped settle the Louisville area.

      Oldham County was named for Samuel Oldham's brother, Col. William Oldham.

      Historians say that Samuel Oldham's plantation once encompassed what now is the land occupied by the fairgrounds, Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom and perhaps several surrounding properties.

      The cemetery was fenced in 1981 when work began on a permanent midway at the fairgrounds. Vandals and time have damaged several of the stones, but the family has had several repaired and one new marker erected.

      Confusion over deed restrictions and complaints from relatives of those buried in the cemetery prevented the graves from being relocated in 1995.

      "It is the principle of the thing," said Dona O. Page of Deer Park, Texas, Samuel Oldham's great-great-great-granddaughter. "The man's will plainly stated?that that (land) was to be preserved for his family? 'forever.' Now to me, 'forever' means forever. It doesn't mean until somebody wants to park more RVs."

      Page guessed that her ancestors would be perfectly comfortable in the middle of the state fair midway.

      "They were always in the middle of everything," she said.

      Harold Workman, president and CEO of the Kentucky State Fair Board, said this week: "We have a great deal of respect for this cemetery and the families that it represents. We make sure that the grounds are maintained, kept safe from intruders, and that it is a place where the family members can visit."

      Keith Cupp of Lexington, publisher of the American Saddlebred magazine Bluegrass Horseman, stopped by the cemetery this week while covering horse shows.

      "It's sacred land," Cupp said. "I think people should be encouraged to stop here and pay their respects when they're at the fair."

      Dear Brother: Letters of William Clark to Jonathan Clark
      By William Clark, James J. Holmberg, James P. (FRW) Ronda

      Samuel Oldham (1749-1823) was a native of Prince William County, Virginia, and also lived in Frederick and Berkley Counties. He served as a seaman in the Virginia State Navy, and in 1783 he moved to the Louisville area, as had other Oldhams, and settled on an estate named Fairhope south of Louisville near the Churchills. He served in several civil offices in Virginia and Kentucky. Oldham married first Jane Cunningham and second Ann Lipscomb. Several of his children married into prominent Louisville families. His son William married Elizabeth Field, the daughter of Capt. Reuben Field, a Revolutionary War veteran of the 8th and 4th Virginia regiments. He apparently was the great uncle of Joseph and Reubin Field. The Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center is located on the site of Oldham's far, and the family cemetery is still extant. (Oldham family file, TFHS; Thompson, 131-33).
