    Falling Springs Cemetary in Overton Co.

    There has been some discussion of various grave types in the local area. These are photos of some graves in the Falling Springs Cemetary in Overton County on Highway 85. I think that one of these is the type referred to as the "Tent Grave".

    This picture and information submitted by Jill Franklin Hicks:

    This is a picture of my Uncle: Ernest Stanley Norris "Jim", he was the son of Granville and Ollie Winningham Norris. He was born September 9, 1918 in Overton County, TN. He married Phyllis Clella Franklin, she was the daughter of Albert & Roxie Sells Franklin, Boatland, TN. They were married in Cravenstown, TN. in 1939.

    He recently passed away, it is my understanding that he was wounded in WWII, I have another Uncle who served in the Phillipines, he was also from Fentress Area, I will send you his picture also.
