GARRETT CEMETERY, SOUTHPORT, MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE



Garret Cem is shown on the left after turning right on Wiley Hollow Road.


This map shows the roads needed to get here and a black pointer indicating the spot.

Garret Cemetery can be found in that clump of trees marked with a red check. It is in severe danger from the farmer allowing the cattle to knock over the monuments. Cattle use the tombstones as a scratching post and this knocks them over and breaks them. If it weren't for the cattle the weeds and trees would take over the cemetery and over time become as much or more of a threat to the tombstones than the cattle. So all cemeteries require maintenance, but few rural ones are getting that.
