|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery, located off Shady Lane, north of Pulaski, Giles County, Tennessee, was established by James Buford (1784-1849), on land which he was given by his father, James Buford (1746-1811). It has remained a family cemetery for ever since. Recently restored, it contains grave sites for 19 individuals, 16 with grave monuments. Of these, the monument for James Buford is the oldest. The rest mark the graves of direct descendants of James Buford, and his wife, Mary White “Polly” Giddens Buford.
There were at least two Buford cemeteries in Giles County in the 19th century. The other one known to have existed was the Charles Buford Cemetery, located southwest of Pulaski, though it no longer exists. Charles Buford was James Buford Jr.’s brother. The remains of those buried at the Charles Buford Cemetery were re-interred at Maplewood Cemetery, in Pulaski, Tennessee.
