Surnames: McMurtry
I'm attempting to find the names of older cemeteries in the Obion County area. My grandfather is supposedly buried in one of them. He died in either 1922 or 1923 in Gadsden, TN - Crockett Cty. Do the older cemeteries have records and, if so, who keeps them. My grandfather's name was Benjamin McMurtry.
Thank you for any help.

Barbara, if you go to WWW.rootsweb.com/tnobion and select cemeteries you may find something. I have the two volumes of the Cemeteries of Obion County but when I looked for the name McMurtry I couldn't locate it. If there are other names you would like me to look up just give me the names and cemetry.

Hi Jack, I checked both my cemetery books and didn't find a Lily Gammons. There are several Gammons listed but now Lily, sorry. The last volume I have is dated 1990 I'm not sure if it is the last vol. published or not.

Anyone looking for the burial places of their ancestors should be aware that the published cemetery listings books of Obion Co. does NOT cover the entire county. If you think your relative might have been in the southern part of Obion Co. you will not find them in the books. The books covering that part of the county have not been published as yet. So don't give up if you don't find them in the books.
