Since I am related to many of the people in this cemetery, I photographed each legible tombstone in the cemetery but it is possible that I missed some tombstones. I either missed or marker photos were not legible for the following listed in "Cemeteries of Claiborne County, Tenn.", by Paul Johnson: J. M. Burch (See Note), L. A. Cole, James R. Kelly, Mrs. R. M. Minton, Dave M. Hodges, Lolah J. Weaver, J. P. Minton, Mary Seal, Robert Seal, S. J. Carr, John M. Kelly, Elizabeth Fultz Kelly and Laura J. Kelly.
