*From Henderson County, Tennessee Cemetery Inscriptions (R. H. Smith, Memphis, 1976).


            For many years after the creation of Natchez Trace State Park and Forest, little attention was given to the cemeteries within the boundary. By the 1970s most were overgrown and often damaged. In recent years the park has restored the cemeteries. All are now maintained by the park (though maintenance does not necessarily extends to their access roads). During the restoration post and log fences were placed around the boundaries of the cemeteries. Whitewashed concrete blocks replaced fieldstones and probably were placed where sunken spots indicated burials. As a result, all cemeteries are accessible and the number of burials can be estimated. But many of the cemeteries now look alike. Many have lost their individual characters.
