|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Ellis Cemetery is located within sight of 1122 Piney Mountain Road in the Edwina community of Cocke County, Tennessee. There are no inscribed stones other than one marked "Ellis" erected in recent years. There appear to be 11 or so graves.
The land once belonged to Noah Ellis, who is buried here with various family members. Some of those members were reported by Carl Freshour, a descendant, to compilers of a cemetery book in 1972. Two names he mentioned, Mary and Nogie, are actually buried in France Cemetery.
This cemetery is usually known locally as Burke Cemetery but has been published in cemetery books as Ellis Cemetery.
