Chickamauga Reservoir Cemeteries
By James L. Douthat

Shirley Cemetery
Surveyed in 1937


Located on the Thomas G. Shirley tract on the right bank of Long Savannah Creek 1000 feet east of the Ooltewah-Snow Hill Road, on Land Map No. 11. This cemetery contains 80 graves, several monuments, and the appearance of it is fair. Elevation of lowest grave is 695. Present access is by private road from County Road to within 300 feet of cemetery, which will be unimpaired by the inundation of the lake area. I recommend that this cemetery remain undisturbed.
