Talley Cemetery - Snow Hill Rd., Hamilton County, TN
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi...Scnty=2457&

Please add description of cemetery: Talley Cemetery is a very old cemetery located on private property off Snow Hill Road between Harrison and Georgetown in Hamilton County, Tennessee. There are no markers with names or dates visible, rather about 10-15 markers of fieldstone. Cemetery is in the deep woods very overgrown. From the Monger Road and Snow Hill Road intersection, take Snow Hill Road south 3/10 mile. Farm on the right is the Davis farm. A dirt road leads to back of farm and goes near cemetery which is well off the road. Surveyed July 2001

Please move all 26 Interments to the other Talley Cemetery, which is located in Chattanooga, Hamilton County, Tennessee.
(NOTE: All 26 Interments for this cemetery, along with the picture of the plot map of the cemetery, are for the Talley Cemetery in Chattanooga, Hamilton County, Tennessee, not the Talley Cemetery on Snow Hill Rd., Hamilton County, Tennessee.)
