Search Old County Farm Cemetery:

Before 1916, the Lawrence County "Poor" Farm was located on Shoal Creek at Busby, Tennessee. This cemetery is on private land and very difficult to locate. The graves are all marked with unscribed natural stones. There are about 3 rows of approximately 7 visible graves. This graveyard is where the poor residents of the County Farm were interred at death. The stones are in a small grove of hardwood and cedar trees surrounded by pine trees. This grave yard is located about 300 yards from the County farm buildings which are present, but are collapsing. The graves are 1 mile from Busby Road on Jaxton Lane (a dirt road) through two locked gates and right at the fork where the old County Farm houses are visible.
