Marks Cemetery
Hwy 31S, right on Prospect RD at Tarpley
Cemetery on property of W J Williams at 1357 Prospect Rd

The tree in back of cemetery is covering several graves, plenty of Poison Ivy around



The names listed here taken from Giles County Cemetery Book. Published by Giles County Historical Society.
This was a very difficult cemetery to locate, and difficult to get to. The owner of the property turned off the electric fence and allowed us through his cow pasture.
 I don't think the cows liked us. This would be the roll of film I exposed and lost most of the pictures.
