This cemetery is located on Doe Creek Road several miles south of Scotts Hill. It originated as a Kennedy family cemetery created just after the Civil War but later became a community church cemetery. The adjacent log church, later used as a school, is in ruins. The cemetery is very interesting. The core of the cemetery retains a nineteenth century appearance even though the cemetery is still in use. There are rows of graves marked with fieldstone headstone and footstones. In most nineteenth century cemeteries which are still in use these fieldstones have been removed to make mowing easier. There may be over 100 unmarked and fieldstone marked graves. There is now a Civil War Trails Stop here.
