CEMETERIES of HENDERSON COUNTY

Antioch Cemetery
State Hwy. 104 about 3 miles Out of Lexington TN
Henderson County TN

This is a large and relatively old cemetery (1830s) near Lexington overlooking Beech Lake which is accessible from State Highway 104. The cemetery is relatively well maintained. The cemetery is full within its original bounds but was expanded north and south during the 1990s. The older part on the cemetery contains dozens of unmarked and fieldstone marked graves. Several markers are too old and eroded to read. This record was made December 26-27, 1993. Updated December 29, 1999 and April 5, 2002. The notes for marker condition refer to the 1993 condition.

Mrs. Ella Franklin and Mrs. Ollie Faye Pirtle Rhodes recorded this cemetery circa 1974. Their record appears in Henderson County, Tennessee Cemetery Inscriptions (Memphis, R. H. Harris, 1976), Vol. II, pp. 468-486. This earlier work is referred to as "Franklin and Rhodes" in the notes below.
