Though the actual location is in Davidson County, I am including the William Waldron Cemetery because of its proximity to Smyrna. The 1975 cemetery books record the cemetery as being “on Carothers Rd 3/4 of a mile east of Battle Road on top of a hill with some large cedar trees. All unmarked and some are slave graves.” There is another Waldron Cemetery that has been surveyed and is on the Davidson County Cemetery site.
In danger of being lost as the area around it is developed, it is chronicled here in hopes its location can be marked and preserved. It is known to be the final resting place of William Van Buren Waldron and his wife Sarah Boyd Waldron. William was born in Elizabeth City, NC and was a soldier in the War of 1812. His will was probated in Rutherford County, TN in 1857. Sarah, his wife, is thought to have died in 1833 or 1834.
Anyone with more info on this family or the exact location of this cemetery, please leave a comment.
