HARMAN CEMETERY

            Harman Cemetery lies on the west side of Natchez Trace Drive about 4 miles north of Lexington. In the mid 1970s the cemetery was cleaned up, markers were repaired and remounted, and a wooden sign with a history of the cemetery was erected at the entrance. However, no provisions were made to maintain the cemetery. In 2002 the sign had fallen and was blocking the cemetery gate and the undergrowth in the cemetery made access very difficult. There are a couple of dozen unmarked and fieldstone-marked graves. One unmarked grave in 2002 seemed to be a post-1976 burial.

            David Donahue recorded this cemetery January 16, 2002 based on the earlier 1976 record. W. L. Barry recorded the cemetery circa 1976. His record appears in Henderson County, Tennessee Cemetery Inscriptions (R. H. Harris, Memphis, Tennessee, 1976), Vol. II, pp. 213-214.
