Kentucky Lake Reservoir Cemeteries - Volume 2


Kentucky Lake Reservoir Cemeteries - Volume 2

James L. Douthat

Volume 2 of the Kentucky Lake Reservoir grave removals by T.V.A. covers the upper portion of Tennessee to the Kentucky line. As with all the grave removals, T.V.A. contacted descendants of the deceased to gain permission to remove or to leave the graves within the bounds of their flooded reservoirs. This volume covers Benton, Henry, Houston, Humphrey and Stewart Counties in Tennessee.

Each of the cemeteries is given in a plat map and if the graves were involved in removal process, then the listing of those graves is given. When removal is taken as the next step, the listing gives the name of the deceased, age, date of death and other information.

Example from this volume:


Located on Land Map 119, Tract GIR-3116F, above elevation 380, 14 graves. This was an active and well kept cemetery. All graves were identified and remain permits executed. ... Here follows a listing of the fourteen graves and information on the deceased.
