Whitten Chapel Cemetery
Wayne County, Tennessee

Lat: 35° 03' 12"N, Lon: 87° 41' 28"W

Contributed by David Montgomery, Dec 16, 2003 [dmont1734@comcast.net]. Total records = 30.

To reach the Whitten Chapel Cemetery from Collinwood, Tennessee, travel Tennessee Highway 13 south for approximately 11 miles. Turn right (west) onto Wilson Road and travel about .6 miles. There is a Whitten Chapel Cemetery sign on the side of the road. Turn right (north) on a narrow dirt road into the woods and go about 75 yards to the cemetery.

The Whitten Chapel Cemetery, in Wayne County, Tennessee is on private land but has public access. It is in a wooded area. The cemetery has at least 47 graves marked only with fieldstone. Some of the Whitten stones had dates and names which were not legible.

This cemetery has large trees grown up in it. One stone is leaning due to a tree growing beside it. Mr. C.E. "Jeff" Whitten, who lives near, told me that there was once a church nearby. It was built of logs with no windows, only shutters to open or close over the openings. It decayed away many years ago.

The following information was recorded from head stones and is current. I completed this survey Dec 15, 2003.
