SECOND CREEK CEMETERY
Lawrence County, TN
DECORATION DAY

      The first Sunday in May is Decoration Day at Second Creek Cemetery.   The cemetery is located just over the Alabama State line in Lawrence County, Tennessee.  If you have been planning a trip to the area, this would be an excellent time to visit.  There will be several families at the cemetery on Saturday, decorating their ancestor’s graves and there are usually several people there that have researched families in the area.  There are also several cemeteries in the vicinity, Lexington, Porter Town, Grassy, etc. My lines of research include Shelton, Howard, Todd, Springer, Williams, and Hammond.  There are several members of these families buried at Second Creek.
      If you need further information, or directions to the cemetery, please E-mail me at    Paula Scales
