New Hope Baptist Church Cemetery

HE-27:  NASHVILLE, DAVIDSON COUNTY, TN.  South New Hope Road
 
The tombstone inscriptions for the New Hope Baptist Church Cemetery were provided to the Davidson County Cemetery Survey  by Hilda H. Barnes and Fran Nichols on October 20, 2004.  Additional historical information on the church and family history may be found in New Hope Baptist Church, Hermitage, Tennessee, The First 150 Years,  by Hilda Hagar Barnes.  Printed by Donelson Printing Company, 1996.
 
Noted in the Introduction.   Rev George W. Hagar was pastor from July 1861 to January 1879. When his wife of 42 years, Minerva, died in 1878, she was buried on the church property. Her burial appears to be the first burial in the church cemetery.
