Chickamauga Reservoir Cemeteries

By James L. Douthat

 

Kirklin


Cemetery

 

 

Located on the John E. Folkner tract, right bank Tennessee River at mile 472, on Land Map No. 4. Said cemetery contains 36 graves, elevation 790, all under fence, and appearance of cemetery is fair. Present access is by a community road from a point on the county road near the old Folkner residence, and same will not be affected by reservoir water. I recommend that this cemetery be left as it is.

(Note: Located on Gold Point Road in Hixson, TN)
