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. 

Inez Road, Smyrna – Drove to where map shows cemetery to be.  Neighbors had not heard of cemetery in the area.  Will try another time.
