The Burford Cemetery
The Burford Cemetery is located approx. 500 yards NW of the house at 96 Lovers Lane Road
on the old Maxey Bradley farm. This old cemetery is enclosed by a iron fence. There are several
above ground crypts most of which have readable inscriptions. The cemetery is in bad condition
with a large tree top fallen across the crypts. The remainder is grown up in vines, brush and briars.

Cal Gregory copied this cemetery and published it in article in the Macon Co Times on Sept 2 1954.
At that time he recorded several more markers than are visible today as four burials have been moved
to Dixon Springs Cemetery.

Oakland (Clay-Bradley house)
Although this house on the Bradley farm is not the original home of the people in the cemetery it
is a significant historical home. It is called Oakland (Clay-Bradley house). It is featured in the book
"Dixon Springs, Tennessee -A Pictorial History" Published by TVA in February 1985. It is a late
Victorian house built in 1898. Of particular interest is the hoods over the second-floor windows and
the small balcony with a turned balustrade. Note the hitching post and mounting block in yard.
