North Church Street Cemetery (Old Lebanon Cemetery)

Located on a hill on the north side of downtown Lebanon off North Church St. A recent article, by Richard Fulgham, in the Lebanon News (August 18, 1999), tells of the sad state of affairs in this cemetery. The cemetery is very heavily overgrown and many of the stones have either been knocked over or broken. This is very unfortunate, as this is the oldest cemetery in the town of Lebanon and there are several historic Russell Countians buried there. The following is, I'm sure, only a partial listing of who is buried in the cemetery.

Items in brackets ( ) have been added by the submitter.
