Smyrna Cemetery

Notes:
217 Interments, including 54 relatives such as



The cemetery is also known as the "Hutcheson Cemetery". It roughly 10 miles north of Pikeville, Tennessee, and about 3 miles as the crow files (but 12 miles by road) from the Cold Springs community, where many of my Hutcheson relatives lived.

I watched the 2017 full solar solstice in from this cemetery, which is on a hill in the middle of the Sequatchie Valley with views of the mountains of Central Tennessee.

Other Hutchesons and a lot of Kuykendalls are buried about 50 miles to the north in another Smyrna Cemetery, near Cookeville, TN. Cissy Myers' parents are buried about 50 miles to the west in a third Smyrna Cemetery, near Irving College, TN.
