Revised here 13 Jul 2009 to include finding and transcribing of this cemetery. Considering all the construction bulldozing in that area and the large mounds of earth, rock and old road pavement piled around I am surprised this little cemetery survived. It did, thanks to responsible construction crews. It has a new surrounding chain link fence and I believe someone is caring for the grounds. I was able to find this cemetery by repeated efforts and analyzing maps that were not so specific, but nevertheless they helped. This listing based on a 24 Feb 2009 finding and visit by Wayne Austin. We did not ask permission because this cemetery was on public development grounds. I cannot say that it always will be. Access could get very difficult with closed off private property completely surrounding it in the future.

Listed in "Maury County Tennessee Cemeteries", page 74, 15 Jan 1987, by Fred Lee Hawkins, Also listed in "They Passed This Way", 3 Feb 1964, page C-13, by Evelyn Shackleford & Marise Lightfoot. Old timer Mr. John Wells aided both Fred (1987) and Marise & Evelyn (1964) in the information contained in their books and the location of this cemetery on his land. I did find a few minor mistakes in their reporting. For this site the listing was first compiled by Mary Bob McClain from "Maury County Tennessee Cemeteries" by Fred L. Hawkins. 6 Jan 2009. Information then was revised & added here by Wayne Austin 13 Jul 2009 based on a 24 Feb 2009 visiting and survey of this cemetery.
