Note: If you do not find the person you are looking for just e-mail the Cemetery Lookup person, Peggy Colella at Cemetery Lookups.

Note from Diane Payne: It is interesting to that Mrs. Guthrie transcribed these cemeteries in 1936 & 1937 however, she did not include any headstones with death dates after 1900. I have added comments using the book Sumner Co. TN Cemetery Records by Snider & Yorgason as a reference guide.

"I would not live always
No welcome the tomb
Since Jesus hath laid there I dread not its gloom
Then sweet be my rest
Till he bid me arise
T o hail him in triumph
Descending the skies."

To the memory of Elisabeth Carter wife of Washington Carter, daughter of John and Susanah Miller born Aug. 31, 1801. Married Sept. 18, 1825. Departed this life Feb. 10, 1842.

"Happy soul they days are ended
All thy mourning days below
Go by angels guards attended
To the sight of Jesus go
This tree a sacred monument rear
Whose weeping boughs
Wave over thy resting place
And shall in future years
Tell me that thou art here

Resting in silence
In thy dark abode
When friends unite
To walk deaths Common road
Elizabeth farewell, farewell
Tis Jesus calls thee home
My bleeding heart submits
His will be done Elizabeth farewell,
