Laster Cemetery is located on the east side of Pritchard Road approximately mile north of Taylortown Road. It is outside the park but was listed on some earlier park cemetery maps. The cemetery probably is mown once or twice a year. The number of depressions equals at least the number of marked burials, and the depressions occur throughout the cemetery area. The cemetery may be full.

            David Donahue recorded Laster Cemetery December 2, 2001. Brenda Fiddler and Bonnie Bradford recorded Laster Cemetery circa 1976. Their record appears in Henderson County, Tennessee Cemetery Inscriptions (Memphis, R. H. Harris, 1976), Vol. III, p. 575. This is referred to as Fiddler and Bradford in notes below.
