Jonathan K. T. Smith recorded this cemetery circa 1995. His record appears in Tombstone Inscriptions from Black Cemeteries in Henderson County, Tennessee, 1995. His information is integrated into the record below. He noted that "the first church was supposedly built here about 1872." Belinda Timberlake and Pam Prater recorded the cemetery in 1976. Their record appears in Henderson County, Tennessee Cemetery Inscriptions. This is referred to as Timberlake and Prater in notes below.
On September 28, 2002, Joseph Parker, son of the late Mary Henry Parker, relayed that his mother told a story about the origin of the concrete blocks. The L&N railroad once had number of construction workers die during an epidemic. The workers were buried in this cemetery where the concrete blocks are. This story, if true, will not be true for all the concrete blocks. In some rows the concrete blocks are interspersed with carved markers, so most blocks in these rows probably mark the graves of earlier generations of families using the cemetery.
