Sneed Cemetery

Old Smyrna Rd.,

Brentwood, Williamson County, Tennessee

Photos & Transcribed by Jenny Calvin July-August 2004 (jcalvin5@cafes.net)

The cemetery is laid out in fairly consistent rows as indicated. There are also several unmarked stones and fieldstones. Many of these people are in my WorldConnect family file at http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=jennycalvin.  

Comments in parentheses are from my research, not from the tombstone. Comments not in parentheses are taken from the tombstone or marker.  "Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away." James 4:14
