McLEAN CEMETERY #1, (east side of Lawrenceburg), LAWRENCE COUNTY, TENNESSEE

This map shows the GPS coordinates of the McLean Cemetery. This is just east of Lawrenceburg. The GPS as calculated by C. Wayne Austin is: N 35.24665 W 87.29936

This road map shows the route needed from Old Highway 64 going east: Location: From Lawrenceburg, take old Highway 64E to Gimlet Road. Turn left onto this road and go around a curve. Just past the curve there is a house on the left side of the road. Turn by this house, going down into a creek valley. This is the first road to your left Beuerlein Lane. Cross the creek and follow the road between two houses and as you start up a hill look right at the Gate into a cattle pasture and some small slopes to climb. Park your car and walk thru the gates opening and closing them behind you to keep the cattle contained. After climbing the slope and acquiring a few mushes of cow piles on your shoes you will see straight north of you the tree lined cemetery due north of your position in the open field. An alternative is to continue  up Beuerlein Lane to the top of the slope and you can see the cemetery on your right about 70 yards from the road in the tree lined thicket with a chain link fence surrounding it. From the road you will need a ladder to keep from damaging the farmers fence. The cemetery is actually in the middle of a pasture on the Niedergeses farm. It is on what was once the original Samuel McLean home place. In 1967, there were about 6 or 7 graves with stones that had no inscriptions. Some of the stones are broken, laying down, or deteriorated so badly you can not read them. 

This aerial map shows the cemetery roads better as the road map above does not show Beuerlein Lane connecting Gimlet Road with Weakley creek Road. Do not go onto this private property if your aims are less than honorable as the neighbors will surely interrupt you.
