LA-18: NASHVILLE, DAVIDSON COUNTY, TN. Clearlake Drive East
Information about the Ellis Cemetery was sent to the Davidson County Cemetery Survey project by an Ellis family descendant. In Davidson County deeds, when the property was sold by Travis Ellis, in the 1840s, the land for the family cemetery was reserved on the east side of the property and was inside post and rail fencing.
On the Metro Planning Commission web site, this cemetery is designated as the “Ellis Cemetery,” with Map and Parcel ID.
Davidson County Cemetery Survey volunteers visited the cemetery in November 2001, and again in December 2002. No tombstones with inscriptions were visible in the cemetery.
Family members have been asked to send any additional research findings about ancestors buried in the Ellis Cemetery in order that their names and dates could be
added to the cemetery listing.
