Falling Spring Cemetery
Overton County, TN

Directions:
Take HWY 52 East from Livingston.  Turn right and go South on HWY 85 toward the community of Allred. Go about 2 miles, you'll see Falling Spring Church on your left.  

The Creek that runs beside this church is called Solomon's Branch.  Locals tell us that it was named after Solomon Allred who was living in Overton County in the early 1800's.

For more information about Falling Springs Cemetery, contact Charlotte Allred Walker.

wpe6A.jpg (42758 bytes) The monument you see in the middle of this photo has the same info on it as the 4 graves directly behind it.  We guessed that a family member erected the monument as a memorial, as a way of preserving the information carved on the original tombstones which are fading as you can see from the following 4 sets of photos.
