CEMETERIES of HENDERSON COUNTY


* HENDREX CEMETERY *


Off New Safford Road
Northeastern Henderson County

When visited in 1992 and 2004 cemetery was fenced and maintained. (Its is still fenced 2009>) Several markers noted as fallen or broken in 1992 had been repaired and reset by 2004. However, in the past the cemetery had been severely damaged by cattle getting through an older fence. In 1978 it was described thus: "The condition is terrible. Nearly all the rocks are broken. Some of the tombstones here are extremely nice. There is no fence to protect the graves from the cows."

David Donahue recorded Hendrex Cemetery December 28, 1992, and checked and updated it March 28, 2004. Brenda Fiddler and James Essary recorded the cemetery in 1976. Their record appears in Henderson County, Tennessee Cemetery Inscriptions (R. H. Harris, Memphis, 1976), Vol. III, pp. 547-548. This is referred to as "Fiddler and Essary" in the notes below. They noted "at least 30 unmarked graves." Blanche Tuten and Margaret Alexander recorded the cemetery on April 8, 1978. Although the cemetery is in Henderson County, their record appears in Decatur County, Tennessee Cemetery Records by the Captain Nathaniel A. Wesson Chapter, United Daughters of the Confederacy, Parsons, Tennessee, 1984, pp. 258-260. This is referred to as "UDC transcription" in the notes below. Tuten and Alexander estimated 20 unmarked graves.
