LASLEY CEMETERY-MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE

This cemetery is located on the private property of Norman Wayne Davis, who lives on the northern edge of the Sandy Hook community. From Mount Pleasant, go south on Highway 43 (New Lawrenceburg Highway), take the turnoff from Highway 43 left onto the Old Lawrenceburg Highway. Just after rounding the curve, take your first right. Mr. Davis lives in the second house on the right. It has been awhile since I visited this cemetery so I cannot really give directions to it from his home. I am sure that he could give further directions. I visited the cemetery years ago hoping to possibly find the grave of my great-great-grandfather Andrew Kennedy who lived in the area. It was a long shot, but as many of you know, you take the long shots when you cannot find what you are looking for.

As far as I know this is a 100% listing of the known graves in the cemetery. The cemetery can be found transcribed on page 788 of Maury County, Tennessee Cemeteries and page A-50 of They Passed This Way.
