Chapel Hill Cholera Cemetery
Marshall County
Tennessee  USA

Cemetery notes and/or description:

In 1832 - 1833 a Cholera Epidemic hit Chapel Hill, Bedford County, Tennessee (now Marshall county). Because there was no clear understanding of how the disease was spread at the time, people who died from it were not allowed to be buried in regular cemeteries. Cholera cemeteries were created usually on the outskirts of the local town so as to contain the contaminated area. These cemeteries were generally ignored and forgotten. Although it is fact that this Cholera cemetery existed, its location is unknown.
