POLK LANE CEMETERY (African American)
MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE
This is the name I used. I am unaware of the correct name. Judging from the variety of surnames this could have been a church cemetery, but unless it is being used as an unmarked cemetery it is no longer in use.

This cemetery is well-kept and easily seen from the road. There are many spots in the ground that are sunken-in but not marked by a tombstone. I have included photos of all 13 stones I could find.
