CEMETERIES of HENDERSON COUNTY

Grandsire Holmes Cemetery
Between Scotts Hill Church of Christ & the funeral home.

This is a community cemetery serving the Scotts Hill area. The entrance drive is between Scotts Hill Church of Christ and a funeral home. It is marked with a sign on state highway 201 which reads:
WELCOME - Grandsire Holmes Cemetery - Dead or Alive
At some point in the past, someone (probably Gordon Turner), placed concrete cylinders at all the unmarked/unidentified graves. There are several dozen of these concrete cylinders. David Donahue recorded this cemetery May 1994 and checked and updated it December 2001. Three other records of this cemetery are available. The most interesting is a mimeographed booklet by Gordon H. Turner titled "The Grandsire Holmes Graveyard." Gordon H. Turner lived on the property adjacent to the cemetery, had several ancestors and many relatives buried there, and had an extensive interest in the people and history of Scotts Hill. His booklet contains a map of the cemetery showing the markers by row and number. A graves directory provides basic name and date information by row and marker number of the people buried in the cemetery. It is followed by a section of biographic and genealogical sketches of many of the people. If one of the people other people known to be buried here is your ancestor, the booklet may provide the grave's location. Turner's booklet served as a basis for the record of this cemetery which appears in Henderson County, Tennessee Cemetery Inscriptions (Memphis, R. H. Harris, 1976), Vol. III, pp. 641-645. Doris Scott recorded this cemetery in April 1976. Although Grandsire Holmes cemetery lies in Henderson County, her record appears in Decatur County, Tennessee Cemetery Records by the Captain Nathaniel A. Wesson Chapter, United Daughters of the Confederacy, Parsons, Tennessee, 1984, pp. 229-233. There are major differences between these works. Doris Scott recorded the markers accurately. Turner did not record the markers per se. His knowledge of this cemetery was much more extensive. His list includes more name and date information than the markers themselves provide, such as maiden names for many of the women. In the lists below, an attempt is made to list both the information provided on the marker and the additional name and date information provided by Turner.
