Clear Creek Church (Christian)
Cemetery, McNairy County, Tennessee
The Thomas & Mary Ann Warden Kerr lots which may also include the body of John B. Kerr interred here in 1844, over 50 years earlier. I also noticed an unmarked grave (sunken places) near the outside of this fence.
The Kerr Grave Plots, a different angle
Kerr, John B., 1821 - 1844. b. Maury County Tennessee. Died of an infectious disease (Malaria or Typhoid) here.
It is likely that John B. Kerr is interred here or somewhere near here. He died 50 years earlier than his brother and sister-in-law and we know from the Clear Creek Church Minutes that when he died he was a member of this church. His Wife Priscilla Warden (sister of Mary Ann also interred here) and son Joseph J. Kerr were dismissed in 1847 to move back to their home station of Campbell Station, Maury County Tennessee. Family information passed down says she sold the land for over $1,800 dollars and rode on horse back to her old home in Maury County. She wanted to educate her son in the schools there.
