This cemetery listing & links were completed by Mary Bob Richardson and came from a composite of listings initially developed by Faye Bradford which were published in the various books & records of the past. Tim & Helen Marsh included it in the book Lincoln County Tennessee Cemeteries Page 51-52. Updated with a visit & photography by C. Wayne Austin 7 Oct 2010.  As you will notice some listings were not found. I was a bit rushed that day so another trip is needed to get more photographs.
