Chickamauga Reservoir Cemeteries

By James L. Douthat


Old Shumaker Cemetery



Located on the Eliza R. Cates tract, left bank of Tennessee River at mile 473, on Land Map 5. Said cemetery contains eight graves, one monument, is very old and now inactive. I recommend that we move all graves that we are able to identify and execute agreements for removal since the entire cemetery is at an elevation of 662.
