Lee Cemetery at head of Harps Creek

The names on this were sent to me many years ago. The lady who sent it to me said she did not know who they were except where noted. The dates and spellings she gave are as she wrote them, with my notes and comments added. This is possible because of the internet, Knox County census, marriages, births, and death records online. If you have any corrections please do not hesitate to give them to me ---Sherman Gibbs
