¹George Key, and his
brother Dave Key, apparently lie in unmarked and unknown graves in the cemetery.
"Old Timers" are sure they are buried here, and some
remember the burials. It is believed, that during a period of a lapse in good record keeping, the grave sites were not recorded.
²Added from list of World War I Veterans - Tennessee State Archives.
Note: these are known veterans, there
may be others. From a list provided by Miss Dorothy Moore.
