Old Mt. Hermon Cemetery

Photo on the left 2003 - Homer Simmons




"The land for the old cemetery at Mt. Hermon was sold by Abner of Lincoln Co., TN. According to early deeds, this appears to be a part of the old Higginbotham tract purchased by William Higginbotham in 1810 and 1811. On October 15, 1830, one acre of land was deeded to Isaac Bennett, Peterson Grammar, and Henry Dean and their successors in office as trustees of the Meeting House at Mt. Hermon. Included in this transaction was the meeting house and all improvements thereon. Witnesses were William C. Freeman and James Freeman"
