Margie writes: We drove all over Rutherford County on Saturday looking for 4 Batey Cemeteries. We could only find the one on Waldron Road. As with many old cemeteries, neighborhoods are springing up all around these treasured old sites.
I’m not giving up on finding the other cemeteries. We will go back in a few weeks and try to find the others.
This one is RIGHT ON the road in a rapidly developing neighborhood. It is Pinnacle Point Development @ Stony Point Road & Waldron. I’ve attached the pictures I took. There are only 3 graves there.
