Bachman Cemetery (McClellan Cemetery)

Located along Highway 81 between Kingsport and Fall Branch (Washington County) TN. It is about three quarters of a mile southwest of Sullivan Gardens, and in the northwest corner where the Mill Creek Road crosses Highway 81. The cemetery is clean and well-kept, with very few graves marked with unlettered stones and perhaps a few unmarked. All marked graves were copied, with the exception of one large stone lying on its face by Charles M. Bennett, November 15, 1960.  Notes by S. Kathryn Bowling McKown.

Transcribed and photographed in June 2002 by Donna Briggs and Gary Sawyer, members of the Cemetery Survey Team of Northeast Tennessee.
