Watts Cemetery is most likely named after Civil War Veteran, James Anderson Watts [b.  July 4, 1846 - d.  Jan. 16, 1916; #29a].  According to a survey performed by Joe W. Letterman in 1939, the name of the cemetery was "Ramsay" and the property owner at that time was John David Watts, s/o James Anderson Watts (#40b, also buried here).  Lottie's Creek was named after Charlotta "Lottie" Briggs-Hensley [b. July 1817 - d. 1902] who lived in this area her entire life.  Heading on Rt. 19W from Unicoi Co, Tennessee towards Burnsville, NC, make a right onto Little Creek Road which crosses over the Cane River -see map below.  After passing a general store/gas station on the left, make the first left onto Bald Mountain Road.  Proceed for about 2 miles on the winding 2-lane road which climbs in elevation towards Little Bald Mountain.  The road forks; make a right onto Lottie's Creek Road [see map below].  Proceed for about 3/4 mile to Love Ones Haven Road which takes you to the cemetery.  This is an active cemetery, well taken care of and ample parking.

 

A special thanks to Dwight Edwards for his research, collaboration and contribution of info and photos for this site.
