Lusk Cemetery

Marion Co. ,TN


Lusk Cemetery is located on Suck Creek Mountain, Walden's Ridge, inside the boundries of the Prentice Cooper State Forest and Wildlife Management Area, Marion Co., TN. It is on Tower Road about 3/4 of a mile west of the Fire and Lookout Tower and is surrounded with the forest on all sides. There is a road bed down the middle of the cemetery, making it appear to be two cemeteries, with the oldest part of the cemetery being next to this center road.

Lusk Cemetery is about 4 acres in size with 60% of the graves unmarked or marked with just a mountain stone rock with no information on them. Every attempt was made to record the information of the individuals that are buried here from the names and dates that are written on the grave markers.
