The cemeteries listed below have been copied from the Warren County, Tennessee Cemetery Books (Vols 1, 2, 3, & 4) by Mrs. Almetia Cunningham and Mrs. Martha Holt, edited and complied by Mrs. Betty Moore Majors. This listing is used here with the kind permission of Betty Majors.
     Our purpose here is to first list the cemeteries from the books (this part is finished), then to add to the list the various cemetery locations as found in the books. Along the way, if we are able to refine the location information, we will add a map or small page with cemetery information.
     If it at all possible, our maps will locate the cemeteries on small portions of USGS 7.5 minute series maps. We will also give the cemetery locations in Latitude/Longitude (degrees, minutes, seconds), i.e. 35° 39' 54"N. The USGS maps do not often name the roads so we will use the road names from the Tennessee Atlas & Gazetter, published by Delorme. That atlas is currently available and is a “must have” for every Tennessee researcher. Please note that like the rest of America, Warren County adopted the 911 emergency phone system and at that time, many roads received new names and road signs. Often the new road names were named for more modern residents.
     We recommend the four books which include many annotations. Book I (A thru F) encludes about 5500 burials -17,000 names, including many parents, wives and women’s maiden names. The other books, Vols 2, 3, & 4, are simular. In the books, the cemeteries are listed alphabetically by name of cemetery and all names are extensively indexed.
     We appologize for the size of some of the maps, however readability is more important than download times.

Warren County and its Cemeteries

     Originally, Warren County was much larger than it is today. Therefore, some early Warren County pioneers who appear in early Warren records may have been buried in areas of the counties which formed from Warren between 1836 and 1842. Those counties are Cannon, Coffee, DeKalb, Grundy, and Van Buren. The cemeteries listed below are in modern Warren County and adjoining counties.
     Most early Warren grave markers have disappeared and so have many of the early cemeteries. The poor quality of the native stone like limestone, used for grave markers, was prone to erosion. A grave marker that had fallen face down would decompose from both sides, that is, weather erosion from the top, contact erosion from wet ground below. In the early days, burial on the family farm was common, near the farm house, often on a knoll, or even occasionally in a fence row. Most of Warren’s earliest burying places are gone. Of course, the bulldozer has also taken its toll of the old cemeteries.
     Even early church cemeteries have lost some of their graves. Examples; French Cemetery has lost most of its graves; Old Philadelphia has lost perhaps two hundred graves. Graves of African-American slaves were the first to go. Those graves would have had the poorest of grave markers if they had any at all.
     Lastly, tombstone photographs are being added to cemeteries as they are received. Also included are some new old cemeteries that are not found in the cemetery books.
