Smith Cemetery
I just finished surveying a cemetery in Fincastle, LaFollette, Campbell Co., TN. It is called the Smith Cemetery and has my ancestors dating back 6 generations. The last time I was through
it was over twenty years ago, and then myself, my mother and my brother, all picked up the stones that were over turned and stood them back up. It was in the middle of a pasture where cattle were roaming free over top of the stones. It was hard to tell were the stones were because of the high weeds. This time, I found the cemetery after 2 days of looking all around it and not finding it because of the higher weeds then before. It was still in a field with cattle roaming all over, and weeds higher then our heads. I was so disappointed after finding the cemetery. All of the stones were over turned and some were broken in half. It was very hard to read the inscriptions on the stone for all the wear. No fence and no care. Soon, this cemetery will disappear and everything lost. I did manage to take pictures of some of the stones that we could find.
