Thursday at the Cemetery ~ Hickory Creek Cemetery ~ Knoxville, Knox County, Tennessee ~ Finale

pic TATCHickory Creek Cemetery is also known as Mount Pleasant Baptist Church Cemetery. It is located outside the town of Knoxville, Tennessee in Knox County. Most of the stones in this cemetery have been well cared for and so has the grounds. I have decided to feature this cemetery because I have several ancestors that are buried here. The first one is also the most “famous” of them all Colonel Joseph Hardin.

In all, I believe there are about 20 Hardins buried here that are Hickory Creek Cemetery #3ancestors of mine. So for the next few weeks, I will be displaying the headstone (if there is one) and writing a short biography of each one. This is the final installment for this Cemetery.
