OAK GROVE CEMETERY

            Oak Grove is a large cemetery in the Cozette Community of northeastern Decatur County. The cemetery is well maintained. The cemetery seems to date from the middle of the nineteenth century. The oldest part is the eastern side of the portion within the access drive loop. There are some fieldstone marked graves and probably are several dozen unmarked graves.

            David Donahue recorded Oak Grove Cemetery November 28, 1997 and checked and updated in December 25-26, 2003. Doris Scott and Blanche Tuten made an earlier record of this cemetery on April 28, 1978. Their record appears in Decatur County, Tennessee Cemetery Records published by the Nathaniel A. Wesson Chapter, United Daughters of the Confederacy, Parsons, Tennessee, 1984, pp. 401-414. They note "At least 51 unmarked graves."
