In the Washington County, Tennessee Tombstone Inscriptions by Charles M. Bennett and the Watauga Association of Genealogists, c1977, this cemetery is listed under two different names on page 14 as the Longmire Cemetery and on page 170 as the Kinnick Cemetery. Information used with the permission of Lorraine Bennett Rae.

Belle Lyle Tilden copied the cemetery on February 26, 1957. The following tombstones were not found June 28, 2001:

Mrs. Emma Cox, d. 1947, aged 88 years [TN Death Certificate 4045: born 2 Aug 1858 VA, died 26 Feb 1947, pts: George and Martha Roberts; widow of James Cox.

E.W.F., 1826-1899

May 24, 1977, Robert D. Hylton found the cemetery so overgrown with poison ivy, honeysuckle, rose bushes and shrubs that a major cleaning would have to be done before all of the plot could be covered. He did not find any more tombstones that are not listed here.
