Jake Link Cemetery, 15-28
Sumner County, Tennessee

We wish to express our gratitude to Margaret Cummings Snider and Joan Hollis Yorgason for their diligent work in compiling the Sumner County Cemetery Book ©1981, and our thanks for allowing us to post these records.  

Typed by Jan J. Barnes

Located approximately 2 miles from Clearview Church of Christ on Jake Link Road.

*Note:  In the Sumner County Cemetery Book, this cemetery is listed as the Link cemetery on the Tom Link Road.  It is, however, the Jake Link Cemetery on the Jake Link Road.   Years ago, the county mistakenly put up a sign on the Jake Link Road that read Tom Link Road.  This mistake took several years to rectify and led to some confusion.  Of the two cemeteries (Jake Link and Tom Link) the Jake Link is the larger of the two.
