SHAW CEMETERY, CULLEOKA, MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE
From Culleoka go east on Mooresville Pike for one mile. The cemetery is on hillside behind Andrews' (was so in 1987. I did not get their names in 2005) house on left. Climb the hill going up from the house about 500 yards, but bear slightly right as shown on these maps. Several cedar trees, and thickets are in the area of the cemetery.

This graveyard was so degraded from over growth of trees, groundhogs and trampling from livestock that it is almost beyond finding where the graves are located. Many of the stones are broken and away from the head of the grave. My suspicions are that most of this occurred naturally from the tree growth. The cemetery has been abandoned for many years. There are graves and several fieldstones outside fence.
