Hill's Chapel Cemetery (Franklin)

On a lonely backroad just outside of Franklin near the old Military Road lies the Hill's Chapel Cemetery. An early politician in the county, Lewis Williams lies here. Apparently, Lewis was also a 1st Lieutenent with Freeman's Regiment during the War between the States.
Also at rest in this place is George Burns, who has family ties to the Lewis Williams family (scroll down on the first Lewis Williams link for Burns' info).
Also buried here are members of the Billingsley, Love, Davidson, and Berry families who were instrumental in the development of the area.

The double tombstone of J.N.A. Billingsley and his wife were my late husband's great-grandparents. His name was Henry Lankford.
