The location of Locke Cemetery









A visit to the Locke Cemetery ...

The location of the Locke Cemetery has been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (ie- the GNIS).<1>

Introduction ...

We have organized the cemeteries in our Gazetteer based on a problem that we had while working on our own genealogy. We found an ancestor that we believed to have been buried in one cemetery was actually buried elsewhere. We discovered that his burial had been refused at the last moment and the family had scrambled to make new arrangements. By looking at nearby cemeteries, the surrounding communities and in newspapers of the period, we were finally able to locate his burial site. Should you find yourself in the same situation, we hope that our Gazetteer helps you discover your lost ancestor.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point at the Locke Cemetery. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 35.5328, Longitude: -84.8966     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for the Locke Cemetery have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
