SITE SURVEYED:  March 14, 2006


Hilda Barnes sent, in 2008, this historical information about the Drennon-Jenkins Cemetery.

"This Dennon Cemetery was listed in the Annotated Cemetery Records of West Wilson County, Tennessee, published in 1981.  The cemetery was called Drennan-McMenaway Cemetery in Davidson County, on North Side of Stewart's Ferry Road, just South of Mt. Juliet Road.  According to my eldest sister, Pauline (93 years old in 2008)
thinks the cemetery is on the property once was owned by our cousin named Allen Jenkins.  "Suits Me" was the sign on his farm entrance."

"Suits Me" was still at the entrance in 2006 during the Cemetery Surveyors' visit.
