This description was given in the WPA records Feb. 1940

It is said that John B. Lillard owned the farm when the cemetery was established and that his son, William L., who died Oct. 27, 1861 , was the first one buried here. Later the Cochran family owned the cemetery and farm and it is known as Cochran (locally pronounced "Cohorn") Cemetery. Other people are buried here besides the Lillard and Cochran families. John B. Lillard was related to the Lillards of Meigs County, many of whom are buried at Upper Goodfield Baptist Cemetery, and to the Lillards of Polk County who are buried in Benton and Four Mile Cemeteries. This is a pioneer family. John & Jane Cochran of Big Springs in Blount County moved to Monroe County In 1837. Their son, R. L. married Ann Lowry or Lowery, daughter of William M. and Elizabeth Lowery or Lowry who also cane from Blount County in 1845. One of this family of Lowery's was president of Hiwassee College for many years. There are 27 inscriptions in the cemetery which is fenced and covers approximately 1 acre. The cemetery is still used ocassionally.
Many of the grave stones are now gone since the WPA reading was done.
The cemetery is down Kincaid Rd. If you turn right at Oak Grove Church on Oak Grove onto Kincaid Rd. it will be on the left in a wooded area.
