Young Cemetery
The Young Cemetery is located near the Jackson- Smith County line at the
intersection with Dean Hill Road and Gladdic Road. It is located about 1/10
miles in woods behind the old log home of the James Young family. The old
log house fell in the last couple of years in a wind storm. There is a
beautiful two story stone springhouse still on the premises. The cemetery is
enclosed by large hand hewned stones. The cemetery is not maintained and
several of the stones are down in this impressive old cemetery. About 150
feet from this cemetery is the Clark Cemetery.

The Young Cemetery Revisited Spring 2006
The cemetery has been cleared of trees and now work is to start on rebuilding the
wall and resetting the tombstones. Its going to take a while. You can't imagine
how deep in the woods this cemetery is.
