David Cemetery is a small family cemetery off the old road from Decaturville to Scott's Hill. It is indicated on the U.S.G.S. Scotts Hill quadrangle (1986). When visited in 1990, the cemetery is very well maintained. However, as the last burial was in 1949, the cemetery is no longer in use.

            David Donahue recorded Davis Cemetery October 18, 1990. Margarett Alexander recorded Davis Cemetery on February 15, 1976. Her record appears in Decatur County, Tennessee Cemetery Records produced by the Nathaniel A. Wesson Chapter, United Daughters of the Confederacy, Parsons, Tennessee, 1984, pp. 162-164.
