TVA Disinterment Cemetery Surveys of the Norris Basin

Looking for a lost ancestor that you are convinced would have been buried in Union County or one of the other counties that made up the Norris Basin? Then this just might be the place for you to start searching for those elusive ancestors whose grave sites may still be were they were originally buried so many long years ago.  The Tennessee Valley Authority has stated that all but 22 graves were moved from the area that was known as the Norris Project.  Using their own cemetery surveys, removal statistics and listing of the individual grave sites that were moved, you will begin to understand that many more graves may in fact have been left to be inundated and lost forever under the waters of Norris Lake.  Listed here are the 165 cemeteries that have so far been identified as lying in the Norris Basin that were surveyed and mapped.  All of those that do not indicate a property owner are known to have been surveyed, but we have not yet been able to obtain a copy of the survey.  If other surveys are found latter on then they too will be added to this listing.  We will begin with cemeteries that were located in Union County and then add the cemeteries from the other four counties that were also impacted. A few of the cemeteries listed here were above the 1040 foot elevation and still exist today.  It appears that they were surveyed only because some removals were taken from them. On each page we will present as much information that we are able to glean from original TVA documents.  The researcher should also keep in mind that many of the graves that were moved and some of those that were left are shown as unknown.  There were also many graves that were re-interred that are still today without any grave marking or headstone.
