***********

THE LAND UPON WHICH STARNES CEMETERY IS NOW LOCATED WAS OWNED IN THE 1860'S BY MR. M. M. WRIGHT , WHO SOLD IT IN 1871 TO MR. MARSHALL STARNES , WHO HAD JUST MOVED TO GREENE COUNTY FROM LAUDERDALE COUNTY , TENNESSEE. JUST HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE BURIED IN THE SPOT PRIOR TO 1871 IS NOT KNOWN . HOWEVER , ONE MARKER BEARS THE NAME OF AN INFANT SON OF W.T. AND MARTHA J. STAIRES , WHO DIED APRIL 8, 1865 . MRS. LIZZIE WRIGHT OF MARMADUKE , WHO WAS BORN IN 1878 , RECALLS VISITING THE CEMETERY MANY TIMES IN HER CHILDHOOD WITH HER GRANDMOTHER , PARALEE STARNES , WHO TOLD HER THE FIRST PERSON TO BE BURIED IN THE SPOT WAS A MAN NAMED BERRY CROCKER , ALTHOUGH THERE IS NO MARKER BEARING HIS NAME. THE FIRST PERSON BY THE NAME OF STARNES TO BE BURIED IN THE CEMETERY WAS HENRY STARNES , SON OF MARSHALL STARNES AND FATHER OF LIZZIE WRIGHT , THE YEAR OF HIS DEATH BEING 1880.

THE CEMETERY WAS UNKEPT FOR MANY YEARS , AND FOR A TIME WAS NOT EVEN VISIBLE . SEVERAL YEARS AGO SEVERAL WOMEN IN THE COMMUNITY UNDERTOOK THE JOB OF GETTING THE CEMETERY CLEANED OFF. MARKERS WERE BOUGHT FOR ALL THOSE GRAVES FOR WHOM NAMES COULD BE REMEMBERED. HOWEVER , THERE ARE STILL MORE GRAVES WITHOUT MARKERS THAN THERE ARE WITH MARKERS.

MARSHALL STARNES , FOR WHOM THE CEMETERY WAS NAMED , WAS BURIED THERE IN 1897 . DEATH WAS CAUSED BY COMPLICATIONS RESULTING FROM A BROKEN HIP.
