CHRISTIAN CHAPEL CEMETERY

            This is a moderate size cemetery at Christian Chapel Church of Christ in the northeastern section of Henderson County. It is well maintained. It was overcast on all three of my visits to this cemetery. In the notes below, toward the road is used as an arbitrary north in any directions provided. This cemetery was recorded December 27, 1992; updated December 23, 1997; and checked and updated November 18, 2001. It is a difficult cemetery to record because many rows are uneven, are not parallel with adjacent rows, and are not continuous across the cemetery.

            Brenda Fiddler recorded this cemetery circa 1975. Her record appears in Henderson County, Tennessee Cemetery Inscriptions (Memphis, R. H. Harris, 1976), Vol. III, pp. 503-506. This earlier work is referred to as "Fiddler" in the notes below.
