Take HWY 52 east from Livingston, then follow HWY 85 south to the community of Allred. Don't blink - you'll miss it!!  The cemetery is directly across the street from the Allred Post Office. wpeAB.jpg (34099 bytes)For further information about this cemetery, contact Charlotte Allred Walker.

A short narrative by Charles Clinton Allred:
"In 1944, I was in Allred, Tennessee and had a very good dinner and breakfast with a Tim Allred.  Before going there I had a very strange dream.  In my dream, I saw a path going across a field on a hillside and a bunch of bushy trees.  I went across the field, upon parting the brush I saw a small graveyard with a fence around it.  On the other side of the grave yard was a pond of water for cattle.  There was something strange about this family cemetery.  The tombs were all above ground, level, with a head stone next to each.
This dream came true in 1944.  After receiving an honorable medical discharge from the US Navy a few months later, I found myself in Allred, TN.  My heart did pound as this dream was fulfilled there and then!
I was able to make out the name and date on 24 of the headstones.  Several others were unreadable and some falling in.  I sent a copy to Archibald F. Bennett (his mother is an Allred).  He later wrote a book and published by story on page 96 "A Guide of Genealogical Research".  
Tim Allred and his wife were very good to me.  She is a very good Southern Cook.  They were the postmasters in Allred, Tennessee and lived in a log house.  She could spit across the room and his a hot stove and hear it sizzle under the lid without a miss.  
Several connections have been made because of this dream."
