KIN BURIED IN THE BOONES CREEK CHRISTIAN CHURCH CEMETERY

Boones Creek Christian Church Cemetery formerly called the Boones Creek Church of Christ Cemetery is located on the Boones Creek Rd., Johnson City, Tennessee ; in the heart of where our Ellis, Hunt, Crouch, Martin, Shipley, Keefauver, and other early families had settled in the early years of Washington County, Tennessee. So much history in this area and lots of unmarked stones are in this church and cemetery. Today a new church is beside the older church and cemetery
