My cousin, Thornton Hagewood, took me to this graveyard
0n 10/15/86. It is on property owned by a Joe Walton in
N/E Dickson County in a grove of trees, fenced in
and very hard to find. I believe it was close to Hamble.
It was supposed to have Monroe and Hagewood graves, both
of which are my families. I found no Monroe graves but
there were maybe 30 or more unmarked graves with stone markers.
I later found out that there was a second cemetary close to this
one with Monroes but did not know that at the time.

    I am new to this site. This note is regarding your 2003 entry on the old Hagewood cemetery at Hamble, TN. Monroe’s are buried on the same hill as the Hagewoods, but, it is a totally different cemetery. It is across the open field and down the hill a little towards Hamble Hill. It has Monroes, Tinsleys, an Ida Mae Carroll that married a Monroe, and others. It has many more graves that the old Hagewood Cemetery, but, most are unmarked. I have photos if you would like to see some. Most people know about the Monroe Cememtery and not the Hagewood because they are located on Monroe Cememtery Road. I am related to Hagewoods (Dora Lee Hagewood Gray, Gmother) and have Monroe and Carroll GG-Gparents. My Momma (Claytie Rose Gray Vaughn) was raised by her Gparents, Thomas and Laura Smith Gray in the old house at Hamble Hill. Will gladly share information and photographs. Regards, Daniel Vaughn
