Re: Zike family Cemetery

Andrea,

If I remember correctly one or a couple of Jacob & Diana's children lived in the area now known as Zikesville, hence the area just became Zikesville. For Zike's Road, I think it was the road that went to the property of a son of Jacob & Diana.

I am a descendant of Susanna Zike (daughter of Jacob & Diana) who married William McGlothlin. Susanna & William are buried in Harrodsburg.

There use to be, no longer sure if it still happens a Zike Family Reunion every year the 1st Sunday in August. The reunion is held in the shelter/park there in Harrodsburg. I have a picture of what I think is a Zike Family Reunion that took place in 1912. If you like, I can email it to you, I would have to zip it.

Regards,

Dale
