Cemetery Survey Volunteers visited the area several times during 2001, and were not able to locate the graveyard. In Harpeth Gleanings,
Volume 1, Winter 1981, Bellevue Historical Society publication, it was reported that the John Hows Cemetery "is in a bad state of repair, practically no care, cows are allowed to roam and the markers have been pushed over." In 2002, Marie M. Garland sent in the inscriptions for this cemetery which were recorded by her and Carol M. Parrish on December 19, 1979.
