+ Thought to be buried here but no tombstone found by Fred L. Hawkins, 1986.

Mr. Fred Hawkins published this information in the book "Maury County Tennessee Cemeteries". That book is available for sale on the Maury County Tennessee Historical Society Web site.

This cemetery is well represented on's Find-a-Grave. It has 21 tombstone photos, so I will not visit & photograph it unless it is real convenient. Our presentations of cemeteries generally far exceeds the presentation of the average Find-a-Grave posting, but the Fly Cemetery is the exception in that it is better than our publication in most ways. I therefore refer you to that site.   FINDAGRAVE - FLY CEMETERY ( However, there is at this time monument listings of burials that actually occurred in Fly Cemetery in Williamson County. Those of Andrew & Thomas Layne. These same listings are also shown on the Williamson County Fly Cemetery.
