Lewis Co, Tennessee:
Palestine Cemetery Page

There are many graves marked with fieldstones. Also, due to it's age, some stones can no longer be read. The first church in Lewis County was located near Palestine Cemetery. The Methodist built this church in 1723 and named it Ebenezer. The late Tommie Ruth Black Bates, my mother, was born and raised in the area. She told me the Church had a second floor and the Masons met there. As a child she heard that part of becoming a Mason was to ride a goat. She said she always wondered how they got the goat up the stairs. She said many of the graves located near Ebenezer were slave families. The first pastor was James Tarrant who is reported to be buried near the church, but we were unable to find any record. Palestine also had a school at one time. Palestine, located on Salem Road, is eight miles East of Hohenwald on highway 412.

"The following is from Susie Gentry Scrapbook in the Manuscript Section of the Tennessee State Library and Archives.  The information was sent to Miss Gentry in 1909 by Mr. Frank H. Smith, Secretary of the Maury County Historical Society.

Ben Huddleston and Tommy Nance, two soldiers of Rev. War buried Old Palestine, Swan Creek, now in Lewis County, Tennessee.  Graves are side by side in N.W. Corner of graveyard; Judge S. Quitman Weatherly of Carter's Creek, Maury County, can identify graves." 

There are no markers for these soldiers. There were scattered flags at Palestine so two may have been for them, don't know.  Information in green was submitted by Kelli Burcham on 19 February 2003.
Information in
maroon was submitted by Ronnie Mercer on 20 February 2009.

Hollis G. Hill is also buried there at Palestine.  However his grave has been lost.  It was by a tree marked with just a stone.  Hollis was born May 1888, TN (death date unknown).  Son of James Hill and Julia Frances Finerty Smith.  Married Hattie Lee on 28 Jan 1907, Lewis Co., TN.   This additional Information was provided by Crystal L. Smith

Old Palestine Cemetery - four stones, three with names have been located in a fenced off area located in the edge of the wood and cannot be seen from the maintained portion of the cemetery.  Nothing has been pushed off down a bluff as is being claimed.   In addition, there are possibly up to 25 additional unmarked, sunken graves located here and there are probably a dozen with just a rock to mark the spots.   The following information was submitted by Sammye Jo Lawson on 11 September 2004. 
This is the stone with only the number - #1036
