While wandering through Mapleview Cemetery recently, I came across the gravestone pictured to the right. I’m not sure which cemetery these were moved from…if I were guessing I would say the Mutual Aid Society Cemetery on Odom Court. You can get more information on it by clicking on the link to the Rutherford County Tombstone Photo Project over on the right side. (Wonderful website Kim…thanks for all the time you put into it!!)
The records for Mapleview would probably reveal the original burial location….I just haven’t checked them yet.
I always find it sad to come across “unknown” graves. At some point in time, someone knew these folks and cared for them. At least these were moved to a peaceful cemetery and given a marker. That doesn’t always happen and that is sad too….
