States: Tennessee: Rutherford
Kevin, I live in Antioch, my daughter live just past Almaville. It reported like a little family cemetery. Just under 1/2 acre, this is not a little old family cemetery, but if most graves were without markers-only a few with names on it; its probably around 1800-1850. I'm curious what names they found, I hope it was recorded. How in the world can Rutherford County built a school without the state check it for American Indian Graves. I'm glad it was early settlers, for who cares-even it's kin folks ancestors down the road. If it was American Indians we might had a "New Indian War" with the Rutherford Co. and who knows that might come in with war-paint and a .44 in his hand, and a pipe of maryjoe in his mouth. Re-remember the Wal-Mart in West Nashville on Charlotte Pk., I figured the Marines was going to be called, over forgotton ancient graves, thousands years ago. I've never heard of the Almaville Cemetery, since you took time written about it, it would be a great historic article to post the names on the tombstones for future historians. I know the community needed the school, other a blighted ground of forgotten cemetery. Gerald Barnell Fowler
