City Cemetery
South Pittsburg
Marion Co. ,TN

The City Cemetery at South Pittsburg, Tennessee is located behind the old McReynolds High School location on a mountainside. The only portion of the old high school still standing is being used as a storage building and stands near the eastern edge of "downtown" South Pittsburg.

This cemetery listing is a combination of two different efforts to record the burials at this cemetery.

Judy K. Wilson provided the following index of burials is that described in a 1999 newspaper article.

"The first phase of cleanup of the old South Pittsburg City Cemetery has been completed. The work will be shown off during an open house Sunday, May 20, beginning at 2pm. During the work, 330 graves were marked by workers. In addition to cleaning up the area and filling in sunken graves, a computerized index was created for the cemetery. The index includes basic data on the graves and even a picture of the head stones. The cemetery includes some of the earliest known settlers in the Sequatchie Valley, including James Bowron, who is credited with founding South Pittsburg."

The whereabouts of the photos mentioned in the article is not known at this time.

The second source was provided by Euline Harris and was recorded by Rev. Bill & Colleen Garrett on January 22, 1986.

It is likely that both of these recordings relied to some extent on burial records rather than what could be seen on the tombstones as most of the stones in the City cemetery are either lost or unreadable.

A third source is the September 19, 1940 South Pittsburg Hustler which has an article about an effort to clean up the cemetery. In that article is a list of persons buried at City Cemetery.
