Roberts and Barnett Cemetery, November 1999


            This small cemetery overlooks the embayment of Kentucky Lake into the lower reaches of Toms Creek. The cemetery is very well maintained. Many of the markers have been replaced. There are a dozen or so unmarked or unidentified graves.

            David Donahue recorded the Roberts and Barnett Cemetery on November 26, 1999 and checked and updated it August 29, 2004. Mary (Stewart) Bowen and Melissa (Snyder) Bowen recorded the cemetery in the early 1990s. Their record appears in Mary Bowen's Perry County, Tennessee Cemetery Records (Vol. I).
