This family cemetery off McMurry Road, overgrown for many years, was cleaned off in late 2001 and its access drive is now marked. It is interesting because it retains much of a nineteenth century appearance, with mated fieldstones marking the head and foot of many graves. There are 17 fieldstone-marked graves and perhaps 4-6 unmarked graves. David Donahue recorded this cemetery February 17, 2002.

Bobbie Bartholomew and Margarett Alexander recorded this cemetery on April 12, 1976. Their record appears in Decatur County, Tennessee Cemetery Records published by the Captain Daniel A. Wesson Chapter, United Daughters of the Confederacy, Parsons, Tennessee, 1984, pp. 333-334. They noted "21 unmarked graves."
