Transcribed by Charles A. Reeves, Jr. from Putnam County, Tennessee Cemeteries by Maurine Ensor Patton and Doris Garrison Gilbert, 1995 (used with permission). The listings below only include the name and location of each cemetery; the book also lists those buried in each cemetery as of the date inventoried. Notes added to these listings since Ms. Patton's book was published are in brackets on the subject pages.

In order to keep the Web page sizes down to something reasonable, the cemetery list has been broken down into ten sections, listed alphabetically. Click on the links below to view the section desired.
