Research on the name of the cemetery. March 8, 2013

Lisa DeCouteau, great great great granddaughter of Asa Adcock, requested information about the name of this cemetery. David Kline, Metro Planning Commission Mapping, provided the following data from Davidson County Deed Book 4644 Pages 758-761:
    "I, Herman A Krantz, hereinafter called Grantor, have bargained and sold, and by these presents do transfer and convey unto the said Anita R. Krantz, Grantee, herein, all my right, title and interest in land in Davidson County, State of Tennessee, described as follows, to wit:  Three (3) tracts of land in the 10th Civil District and being shown as Asa Adcock property on the tax books as a Thirty-nine (39) acre tract of land on Ivy Point Road, Map 10, Parcel 101315, being more particularly described, according to a survey by Alvin W. Thomas, Jr. surveyor, August 2, 1967, as follows:  (Note:  This is the portion of the Deed relative to the graveyard)
      TRACT NO. 1 being a graveyard of the Adcock family and beginning at an iron pin on the westerly margin of Ivy
      Point Road and a private driveway; thence following the margin of said Ivy Point Road...
           (In the Deed, exact measurements were detailed for the graveyard)

Name of this cemetery will be changed from Krantz Cemetery to Krantz-Adcock Cemetery
