O’Kain Cemetery

by admin on September 14th, 2003

This Graveyard is located o­n the side of a hill among a grove of trees in Northestrn Dickson county o­n property owned at the time by a Jim Lawson who gave my cousin, Thornton Hagewood, permission to take me to it. We had to park about a thousand yards away and walk over a small creek and up the hill. We could not see the graves until we were in the trees. Very overgrown.
