BLACKMAN CEMETERY, (Carters Creek) MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE

The Blackman Cemetery in the thicket infested with brush and vines. There is a rock wall somewhere in there but cannot be seen here. It may sit on a separate lot instead of a lot where a house has been built next to it. 

In this photo we can see most of the stones in this cemetery though they are not so plain. Beginning on our left are the stones of:
BLACKMAN, Anna, 1 Jan 1785 - 31 May 1849.
(Short brown Flat top stone, left edge of the photo) 
BLACKMAN, Infant son, 6 Jun 1849 10 Jun 1849, "son of A.W. Blackman & Elizabeth, his wife."
(Short shoulder style memorial directly back from Anna with his short footstone in between the two)
BLACKMAN, Albert Washington, 12 Dec 1815 - 27 Jul 1853.(38 years.) "Son Bennett & Anny Blackman."
