RE: Fork ridge cemetery
I'm afraid I am not going to be much help to you. The Fork Ridge Cemetery is almost completely overgrown and most gravestones have either been destroyed or crumbled away. I have never found anyone who has a list names of people buried there. Lots of burials took place without a funeral home being involved, hence no records.

My father said when he was 6 years in 1914, he walked behind the casket of his grandfather when he was buried at Fork Ridge. I went back there a couple of times with my Dad, once in the 1960's, once in the 1980's. Neither time could we find a gravestone. I have been back 3 or 4 times since and have decided it is a lost cause. I know he is there but will never know for certain the exact location.

I have no idea if there are other cemeteries in the area or where the old mine was located. My sense of the place from my Dad is that the mine and housing were nearby to the cemetery.

Sorry I cannot be of more help. If I ever find out anything further I will let you know.

Riverview cemetery
Pennie, I appreciate you trying to find James Carry Browns grave site , and you say you cant find the cemetery. It is located right outside the town of Loudon, like you are going to Vonore on the old road, right after you past the ole hospital that sits on a hill, (Its now a retirement home or something") and the church and graveyard sits on the left right after you pass that. If you were to keep going you would see Apts. and a nursing home. I would appreciate you trying to find this grave for me, as I live south of Atlanta, I am from Lenoir City. Thanks Ann Mills Jones

PS I have heard this called Riverside, and it sits in the back of the Church.
