Rice - Horton Cemetery

AN-108: Nashville, Davidson County, TN. Reynolds Road

Report on locating the cemetery from Jan Cain. 12-29-2008

Today we have just come back from the "small family cemetery" on Reynolds Road where we found five fieldstones and a sunken grave with no marker.  It has been referred to by some people as the Rice Family Cemetery, but today we were told by a long-time Una resident that the cemetery is on former Horton land.  The Hortons were in-laws to the Rice family.  

According to Rev. John Joslin's historical book,  History of Smith Springs Baptist Church, a Roll Call o Faith, 1874- 1974, and from some other research resources, the known burials:

Rev. John S. Rice  Died July 17, 1916. Aged 83 years
