About Abe Barger

Abraham and Mary lived between Leatherwood Creek and the Turkey Branch. They are buried high on the point, directly across the Buckhorn Lake from the mouth of Leatherwood Creek.


Per Jackson Spurlock, The Abraham Barger Cemetery is located directly across Buckhorn Lake from Leatherwood Creek, high on a point accessable only by boat in Perry County, Kentucky. Abraham Barger and his wife, Mary, lived just up the river from where Leatherwood Creek enters into it. This community was once called Bowlingtown, KY. It was named after Mary's father, the Reverend Jess Bowling, a well known minister. This entire area runs approximately ten miles from the little community of Buckhorn to Hyden, county seat of Leslie County. This area is all underneath the Buckhorn Lake now.
