Photo images contributed by Sandy Keathley, TNGenWeb White County Coordinator. He writes “the tent graves are from Mt Gilead Cemetery in south White County. The tents are sandstone, quarried by my umpteen-greatuncle Thomas Keathley, in the 1860s.” Mr. Keathley also wrote that Andrew C. Keathley “was a Methodist minister, a circuit rider.”
