Cemetery

Henderson Co TN

Photo by Christine Walters 2009

This is a church cemetery on Ebenezer Road near its intersection with Ebenezer Church Road. This cemetery is old. The earliest death date on a marker is in the 1840s, but the cemetery may date to the circa 1820 settlement of the area. (Carved markers generally were not used in this area until the 1870s.) There are many unmarked and fieldstone marked graves here, perhaps over 100. Many older markers are weathered and are unreadable or only can be read in the most favorable lighting. Try sunny winter afternoons when the sun is relative low on the horizon and off to the side. Good light is necessary for reading the older McCollum, Middleton, and White markers.
