CEMETERY, LEE ROAD, MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE
Called Lovett Cemetery on USGS maps.
Go out Bear Creek Pike and turn north on Blackburn Rd and then turn left on Clara Mathis Rd and then go about 2 miles and turn right on Lee Rd. Go about 500 yards and the lone standing stone is on your right up an old hedge row under the line of trees. The stone has been cleaned and is bright white and can be seen from the road on the right side and about 40 yards in front of a new home.

Confirming Mr. Fred Hawkins & Dwain Bradley's findings this researcher found one stone standing and that was for Ed Frank Jones. There were other minor evidences of a graveyard, but I did not examine them in detail because there were no visible inscribed memorials. I did see across the fence line bulldozer work whereby stones were present that appeared to be for graves. They appeared to be made of decorative concrete and did not appear to have inscriptions from a distance. They were at least one in number, but broken and piled up from the dozer work in the new yard. It is possible that they were from the Foster-Lee Cemetery which was across from this one. Because there was no proof they were gravestones and they were piled on private land I did not examine them further.
Mr. Hawkins says this about what he
found in 1986:
The only inscribed stone, that of Ed Frank Jones, had been turned over and covered with earth. Mr. Dwain Bradley, who farms the neighboring place, took me to the cemetery. Mr. V. P. Lunn later returned with me and we sought for other graves but found nothing. This is just across the fence from the Foster-Lee Graveyard.
