Chickamauga Reservoir Cemeteries

By James L. Douthat

Thatcher Cemetery  
Surveyed  1937

Located on the W. C. Thatcher (heirs) tract on the right bank of Tennessee River at mile 491. Contains 34 graves, lowest elevation 705 feet. Present access is by private road and trail which will be unimpaired by the Chickamauga Reservoir. It appears that this cemetery will require no further attention.

WPA Record - The Thatcher Cemetery is located twenty-six miles northeast of Chattanooga. Follow Highway #27 north to the Lee Road which is twenty-two miles. Take the Lee Road right for four miles east to the "old" Thatcher farm house. The land was given by Mr. S. S. Thatcher. There are about thirty unmarked graves, all being very old. 1939
