Alexandra Broadaway Marker

BROADAWAY CEMETERY

          The Broadaway Cemetery, dating to about 1890, is one of the newer cemeteries in the Cedar Creek area of Perry County, Tennessee and may have originated as a Broadaway family cemetery. Most of the people buried here seem to be related to the Broadaway family in some way. Many of the older Broadaway family markers were recently replaced with modern granite markers. There may be up to a dozen unmarked and unidentified graves.

          Leo and David Donahue recorded Broadaway Cemetery and December 26, 1988. David Donahue partially checked it March 11, 1989, updated it April 16, 1999; and checked and updated it September 10, 2004.
