Bible Hill Cemetery is a moderate size cemetery at the intersection of Bunker Hill Road and Deer Creek Road. The cemetery gets little or no maintenance. Only the northern portion of the cemetery where the most recent burials lie is clear. The most densely occupied portion of the cemetery is the south side which is overgrown. There are many many fieldstones and sunken spots in the overgrown area. In fact, the limits of cemetery seems to lie back in the woods and probably correspond to the yellow "No Trespassing" signs seen in the woods on the eastern and southern sides of the cemetery. The southernmost inscribed marker, that for Tom Bankston, is more than 50 feet south of the clear area and any other inscribed marker, and the area between is full of fieldstones. Maybe as few as 25% of the burials here have inscribed markers.

            David Donahue recorded Bible Hill Cemetery February 24, 2001 and checked and updated it September 21, 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). This earlier record is referred to as Bowen in the notes below.
