Search Wrights Chapel Cemetery:

Located at Wright's Chapel Church between West Fentress Community Center and the Manson Road on Highway 52 toward Livingston. It is about 9 miles west of the courthouse at Jamestown, TN. Going from Jamestown it is on the right side of the road, behind the church. It is near but not in Helena as it lies across the East Fork of the Obey River from that community.

Two well known cemetery books describe the cemetery and its location somewhat differently:

Wheeler, Mabel Rushton, CEMETERY RECORDS, FENTRESS COUNTY, TENNESSEE, 1988, p. 406:
"Wrights Chapel Cemetery - Located in the central section of the Riverton quadrangle, on the north side of Highway 52 west. Established 1850 on land donated by Sarah Wright Cooper."

Norris, Gary Denton, FENTRESS COUNTY FOOTPRINTS, 2001, p. xx:
"Wrights' Chapel - This church cemetery is located alongside Highway 52 about 5 miles west of Jamestown. There are approximately 50-100 unknowns at this cemetery." (NOTE: There are also well over 100 marked graves in this fairly large cemetery.)

There are other Wright cemeteries in Fentress County, but this is the largest.
