Oak Grove Cemetery - McNairy, Life & Times of McNairy County, TN

OAK GROVE CEMETERY

Oak Grove, sometimes called the Reed Cemetery, is the southwest part of the county south of Chewalla

and almost in Mississippi. Take Hwy 57 to Ramer. Turn left just across the railroad tracks on Chewalla

Rd. Go several miles, through the little community of Chewalla, across the railroad tracks. Turn right

on Turner Road, go ½ to 1 mile and turn left on Reed School House Rd. (Road used to be called Oak

Grove Rd.) It is 1 ½ to 2 miles on the left, just before you go into Mississippi. Don’t know if there is a

marker showing the Mississippi line. Harold Cox says “there are several unmarked grave, some marked

with sandstone, concrete blocks, etc.”One unmarked grave is Sarah Sellie Mask Graham, first husband

was Louis Caste Austin. From Cemeteries of McNairy County by Nancy Kennedy
