Hill Orchard Cemetery

Houston County, Tennessee

LIST OF DECEASED

 

Hill Orchard Cemetery is located in southwestern Houston County, Tennessee, southwest of White Oak Road on top of the hill north of White Oak Creek at Kentucky Lake. The original two-acre cemetery site was donated by Uriah S. Tomlinson in 1907, while in the 1940s W. B. Summers, purchaser of the surrounding farmland, authorized the Tennessee Valley Authority's re-interring along its north side of remains removed from several nearby cemeteries that were to be inundated by Kentucky Lake. In the early 1970s it was improved and landscaped through a concerted effort of its Association members consisting of many descendants of the families represented here. This list contains gravestone information compiled by Hill Orchard Cemetery Association members about 1970. Fifty to one hundred graves have no monuments or markers identifying them. Items in parentheses are added primarily by Charles E. Askew, whose own family records are sometimes at variance with those posted herein.
