Hardgrave Cemetery

Hardgrave Cemetery in Williamson County, Tennessee

On the Davidson County Cemetery Survey website, visit the Providence Church Cemetery to learn more about the connection to the Hardgrave Cemetery history.  Providence Church Cemetery was initially visited in the Survey Project on April 16, 2000.

On January 14, 2004, Davidson County Cemetery Surveyors re-visited the Providence Church Cemetery and located a notice on a wooden sign board with information about the Hardgrave Cemetery.
        "The DAR obtained military stones for Skelton and his father Francis Hardgrave, in 1941, and erected the stones here (in this cemetery).  The Hardgrave Family Cemetery was later discovered across the river in what is now the Horseshoe Bend development.  In 1998, both stones were moved to the correct cemetery. Francis' original tombstone was still here (Hardgrave Cemetery) and barely readable.  Skelton Hardgrave is believed to be buried in New Orleans."

On February 29, 2004, Davidson County Cemetery Surveyors visited the Hardgrave Cemetery on a hill over looking the Harpeth River in Williamson County.  The two military stones for Francis and Skelton Hardgrave were seen as well as other original tombstones.

Following this visit, contact was made with Charles E. Doggett who has conducted extensive research on the Hardgrave family and the cemetery in Williamson County, Tennessee.  Researchers are invited to visit the website maintained by Charles E. Doggett at  "Hardgrave Cemetery Nashville"    Here you will see a view of the hillside cemetery, photographs of tombstones and the inscriptions of legible tombstones.

Nick Fielder, State Archaeologist, visited the Hardgrave Cemetery in 1997 and he determined that there were over 30+ graves in the graveyard.
