Footprints: Union County Cemeteries
           

The Cemetery Collection; "Footprints: Union County Cemeteries", has been updated with the aid of The Union County Cemeteries Association. Each cemetery in the county has been revisited and 129 were located since the 1991 publication. Each cemetery now has an address and/or directions, plus a GPS (Global Position System) reading. Transcribed from stones were names, all dates, and any organization including military information.

"Footprints, Union County Cemeteries" reflects a total of 331 cemeteries and 18,318 names. The cemetery collection is published by the Union County Historical Society, Inc., P.O. Box 95, Maynardville, TN 37807. The price is $45.00 + $5.00 S&H or may be purchased at the Roy Acuff Union County Museum and Library in Maynardville on Sundays 1:30 P.M. until 5:00 and Mondays and Tuesdays 10:00 A.M. until 4:00 P.M.

 
“FOOTPRINTS ADDENDUM”
2000 EDITION
ADDITIONS & CORRECTIONS
April 2005

This is a listing of changes to the 2000 edition of footprints.  The changes will include spelling corrections, new markers for previously unmarked grave sites or grave sites that had only been marked with a fieldstone, stones that have been repaired, stones that have been reset, stones that have been cleaned, stones that have been found during the cleaning of a cemetery, and added markers to a grave site that has been marked but due to weathering and age the older stone became to hard to read.  Some of these unmarked graves, and graves that had been marked with only a fieldstone may have been included in the 2000 edition of “Footprints”. Many of the unmarked graves were those that were moved by the Tennessee Valley Authority in the 1930’s.  The burial sites for the unmarked graves were known to us from plate surveys and field notes done by TVA at that time and which we have obtained copies.  Also from TVA records we have included some known graves that were not moved and still reside Union County but are under the waters of Norris Lake.  This list will be an ongoing feature of the Union County Cemeteries Association web site at, www.usgennet.org/usa/tn/county/union2/, and any future additions or corrections that are added to it and will be earmarked. These and any other changes will also be published in the Union County Historical Society quarterly “Pathways” for those who do not have internet access.

ANNA IRWIN CEMETERY TVA #32   Not previously listed, located under the waters of Norris Lake

In the 1930’s during the building of Norris Dam, grave removal personal are said to have made a determined effort to locate all graves which were to be inundated by the waters of the new Norris Lake.  It is more that likely that a number of graves were never found or removed.  But what it is known, that in several cases some people chose to leave their relatives graves undisturbed.  TVA has stated that twenty-two (22) graves reportedly were not removed, and records for seventeen (17) of these were found for the Anna Irwin Cemetery. TVA plat survey NR#932 for the property were the cemetery was located, indicates that the highest grave in this cemetery would have been at the 1020 foot elevation, which means that when the waters of the lake were at their highest level the cemetery would be totally covered.  This cemetery was located about two miles southwest of Loyston in Union County and about one mile from the Anderson County line.  The following is the list of those graves left in this cemetery and who authorized TVA to leave this grave and the person’s relationship to the deceased.  None of these names were listed in the 2000 edition of “Footprints”.
