Located on the property of Mrs. Homer Scott, near Hartsville, Trousdale Co. TN. It is a few yards south of East Fork where it intersects the Sumner-Trousdale County line. Copied June 1972. The cemetery is given this name because of the name of the first person apparently buried there.

Note from the transcribers - The date for Nimrod indicates he died after the 1850 Census, but he does not appear with Susan in District #3 of Sumner County. Sumner County marriages show Nimrod Brown and Susanna T. Brown 22 September 1823. There is a Nimrod Brown names in Mrs. Beverley Stercula's compilation of Virginia Thompsons - he was born 5 April 1797; also an Amanda Brown born 10 January 1809. George T. Brown was in District #14 of the 1850 Census. No further research has been done by the compilers.
