Update on the Cox-Boles Cemetery Cleanup Project

Daniel Cooke did maintenance on the Cox-Boles Cemetery. Notice before and after pictures showing the condition of the cemetery at the beginning of this project and after the work was completed.

Daniel found the cemetery sign underneath leaves and brush. The sign was part of our cemetery sign project. Our volunteers will re-install the sign.

The Union County Cemeteries Association is a non-profit organization* located in Union County, Tennessee. We strive to find ways to restore and preserve old and abandoned cemeteries, and also documenting the names of those interred. While you visiting our site, please take a moment to sign our guestbook below and let us know what you think of our site.

The Union County Cemeteries Association through this web site will be presenting, through photographs and information, some of the more unusual headstones and burial sites located in Union County. We will also be listing for you information corrections as they become known, in subsequent editions of "Footprints", which is published and available through the Union County Historical Society. Additionally, we will list and show pictures of some of the many burial sites that have not had headstones in the past, but through the efforts of the UCCA and many individuals, markers have been purchased and placed.

As individual pioneer cemeteries have been cleaned, we have on occasion found a grave with an overturned marker that was buried under many years of natural debris. In addition, we have also found on occasion a field stone that was used to mark a grave, that upon close inspection would reveal a name and/or dates crudely scratched into them. This new information will also be presented on this web site. Pictures of "before" and "after" of cleaned and repaired headstones and cleaned and restored cemeteries will also be shown.

All of this is done through the volunteer efforts of many people. The majority of the cemeteries now have signs, but there is still much more work that needs to be done. Supplies, such a weed and root killer to apply to some of the cemeteries on an annual basis, cleaning supplies and special glues for use on headstone restoration, and maintenance on the upkeep of equipment used in cleaning the cemeteries, are ongoing cost to the society. One of the major issues that is now being addressed is fencing for those cemeteries who need it. Several of the older neglected cemeteries are located in areas were there are cattle, and they have no respect for these pioneer resting places. If you enjoy this web site and are pleased with the effort that is being put forth by the UCCA, we thank you, and also ask that any financial support that you might be able to extend to us would be warmly received and greatly appreciated.

The Union County Cemeteries Association meets on the third Saturday of each month at 10:00am at the Union County Courthouse located at 901 Main Street, Maynardville, Tennessee. All members and interested persons are encouraged to attend. There are no meetings held in the months of July and December.
