DOCKERY CEMETERY (Pigg School House Road) MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE
The red check shows the location of the Dockery Cemetery. This cemetery is not detailed on the USGS records so I have provided this improvised map to show the GPS coordinates. The GPS Latitude & Longitude is correct as shown above. The above map shows a barn just southeast of there, but that barn no longer exist.
This map shows at the Dockery out several hundred yards southwest of Pigg Schoolhouse Road which is south of the Snow Creek Road (Hwy 247) where you will find this cemetery northwest of Columbia Tennessee. The cemetery is shown with the red dot as all others are on the above map, but it is not really on the original map by MS Streets & Trips. I graphically added it here for completion purposes.
Location: Go southwest on Snow Creek Rd. to Mingo Branch Rd. Turn (left) south & cross the creek on Pigg Schoolhouse Road and go 1/2 mile up the side of the ridge where the road bends eastward (left). Enter a farm lane on the right that branches to two roads. Take the right fork and with permission go through the gate. Go about .2 of a mile, pass the old house and continue on another 200 yards to the cemetery on the right of the field road. The cemetery is located in edge of the woods behind the old house. Actually the road going to the old house goes to the cemetery past the house. There is a locked gate at the entrance of the Pigg School House Road so a key and permission are required there.
This Aerial view shows the roads highlighted in yellow to get you to this cemetery. When you turn off of Pigg School House Road there is a locked gate. This is to keep the bad guys out and not the visitors so contact the owner - an out of town person I am told.
Notice in this close in Aerial view the clump of trees where the cemetery is located on the west side of the trail or old roadbed. That is about 200 yards behind the house shown as a white gray blot on this map. You have clean walking even after passing the house. The cemetery is about 1/2 Mile from Pigg School House Road.
