Long Cemetery

Marion Co. ,TN


Long Cemetery is located in Mullins Cove, Marion Co., Tennesse, on the banks of the Tennessee River.
This cemetery is very overgrown and the woods have just about taken over what is left of the graves that can be seen.

There are only 6 graves that we could read from the old cemetery.


LONG, JAMES Born in Mullins Cove on February 11, 1855 and died April 15, 1907 in Marion Co., TN.

SMITH, M. F. w/o ROBERT SMITH b. November 9, 1831 d. October 8, 1892

 Note: I have been told by a family member that they believe this M. F. SMITH to be 
Missalee Finetta Smith but do not have any documentation to support it. There is a
sunken place in the ground next to M. F. Smith and it is not marked. This could
possibly be the grave of ROBERT SMITH.
