LOCATION: The GLEAVES Family Graveyard is located in Hermitage, TN (Davidson County), travel east on I-40 from Nashville to Old Hickory Blvd.(exit 221B). Turn  right on Old Hickory  Blvd. and take the first right (Mills Road). Follow that road for about 1/4 mile (it climbs a hill, curves left, and then curves around to the right) and the cemetery is on the right. There's a lot of construction going on around it so I suspect it is about to become a neighborhood.)

Many of the headstones were sunk too far into the ground to read; two or three of the larger ones had been overturned though apparently not by vandals. The graveyard itself was overgrown but obviously protected from construction going on nearby. The newest grave had semi-fresh flowers so it is not being completely neglected though it appears it isn't visited often.
