Chickamauga Reservoir Cemeteries
By James L. Douthat


Rawlston Cemetery

(Surveyed in 1937)

 

 

Located on the N. E. Hixson tract on the right bank of the Tennessee River at mile 479, contains 24 graves, several monuments, all under fence, and general appearance of cemetery is good. Elevation of the lowest grave is 735. Present access to cemetery is by trail from the Harrison Ferry Road which will be flooded by the Chickamauga Reservoir but more desirable access is to -be provided by the construction of the county road in lieu of the present Harrison Ferry road.  I recommend that this cemetery be not moved.
