YOKLEY CEMETERY, (Hwy 245 & Smith Hollow Rd) GILES COUNTY TENNESSEE

This church was at one time the old Poplar Grove Cumberland Presbyterian Church before it was moved (at least the congregation moved) to Campbellsville. Likely it was near this cemetery somewhere as it is mentioned on a tombstone. It is now the Campbellsville Cumberland Presbyterian Church and sits on the east side of Campbellsville.
