It's official! On Memorial Day we will be hosting a cemetery walk-through and flag placement ceremony for our Civil War soldiers buried at Carr Cemetery in Maynardville. Carr Cemetery is the final resting place for 16 Civil War veterans. It is located at the intersection of Main Street and Prospect Rd just south of Horace Maynard Middle School. The walk through will be the final part of a three part ceremony beginning at the Union County Courthouse at 11AM. We plan on starting our part at approximately 12 Noon.

We shouldn't take more than 15 minutes to recognize the soldiers,, after which you will be able to walk through and visit each grave. Parking will be available in and around the cemetery. We are trying to use the cemetery driveway for our seniors and handicapped visitors. We hope to see you on Memorial Day. Have a great week!


We are thrilled to announce the Union County Cemeteries Association has been chosen to receive the Community History Award from the East Tennessee Historical Society for our efforts to highlight the Civil War soldiers of Union County. The award will be presented at the ETHS annual meeting next month.

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.
