Martins Creek Cemetery was established in 1888 when Hiram Bailey (plot #104) sold a parcel of his land for $16 to the township committee of Erwin.  The deed was entitled "Embracing the Love or Martins Creek Graveyard."  The original cemetery from which Martins Creek grew was the William Pickney Love (1818-1876) family graveyard (plot #180) that was located on the former Love property which was sold to Hiram Bailey in 1887.  William P. Love was the grandson of Revolutionary War Patriot and Statesman Col. Robert Love (1760 - 1845).  After the war, Col. Love moved to this area once called Greasy Cove from Augusta, Virginia around 1782 and owned several large tracts of land which included the Martins Creek area.  He even created a racetrack where Andrew Jackson rode his horse against Love's which ended in a heated verbal altercation when Jackson lost.  Col. Love left the area in 1792 and settled in Haywood Co., NC but many of his descendants stayed owning the land around Martins Creek Cemetery which became the Love family cemetery.

Martins Creek is located on the south side of Erwin, Tennessee, formally known as the Lilly Dale Community. The 5 acre graveyard includes many historical folks who helped to establish Greasy Cove, Erwin and the surrounding communities of Unicoi County.  We salute our veterans who are buried here, many of whom served in the Civil War.  Part I lists the index of surnames in alpha order which corresponds with Part II.  Part III is a listing of unmarked graves in alpha order in which death certificates list this cemetery as place of burial.  Many death records of the late 1940's noted this graveyard as the Horne Cemetery.

 

RESTORATION: In June 2019, employees of Nuclear Fuel Service plant adjacent to the cemetery, volunteered to restore the cemetery by laying a new access road with fresh gravel for visitors, removing debris in and around the cemetery and spraying headstones with an antibacterial solution that will preserve them for the future.

The Martins Creek Cemetery Association through the generous contributions of donors is taking the lead in restoring the cemetery and repairing many of the aged and fragile tombstones.  Feel free to reach out to the association at P.O. Box 874, Erwin, Tennessee 37650 if you wish to contribute.

 

DIRECTIONS: From I-26, take Exit 40, Jackson-Love Hwy. towards Erwin. Continue on Jackson-Love Hwy for about 1/4 mile.  At the flashing yellow light, bear left at the fork onto Carolina Ave. Extension. Proceed on Carolina Ave. passing the Nuclear Fuel Services Inc. on the left. Shortly thereafter, about 3/10 of a mile, the cemetery is on the left directly across from the State Trout Hatchery. There's a gravel road which circuits around the graveyard for easy access; parking is ample.  Sections of the graveyard are not easily accessible.

 

Contact me for corrections or additions.  I am happy to post your family photos / info citing your contribution.  This is an active historical cemetery with over 1050+ graves, many of which are unmarked.  "Unmarked" plots are arranged in suspected relationships.  This page changes frequently as people contribute and information becomes available.

"A form we loved is gone, A voice we loved is skilled

A place is ___in our home, that ever can be filled"

[s/o Joseph Murray and "Lizzie"Banner #226; twin of Judy Banner #226]

NOTE:  Harry was the son of Elizabeth Banner and Joseph Murray.  He was a twin to sister Judy and he and his 4 siblings used their mother's maiden name.  Legend has it that during the Civil War, Harry was captured at the age of 14 by a rebel unit that was passing through the Martins Creek  section of  now Unicoi County and that a handful of renegades put a noose around his neck and strung him up on a pole that was used to gut hogs.  No one is really certain why the rebels would do this to a young lad.  His mother begged and pleaded for her son's life and fellow neighbors joined in to collectively persuade the soldiers to release him.  It came as no surprise that Harry voluntarily joined the Union on August 15, 1864 in Jonesboro, TN as Private in Co A. 3rd Regiment, NC Mounted Infantry declaring he was "age 18."  His service record clearly shows his name spelled as "Banner",  He signed up for 3 years as a Musician playing a Fife (similar to a piccolo) and on those documents, he is noted "age 16".   He was a "farmer" from Washington Co., and stood 4 feet 6 inches with black hair and black eyes.  He played the fife the entire service and was paid $100 at discharge in August 1865.   An officer misspelled his name "Bonner" which later required explaining via Affidavits for him to collect his service pension.   In 1876, Harry went to school to learn to read and write and continued his studies in medicine to aspire to became one of Erwin's early physicians.  He practiced Allopath medicine along with   Dr. G. C. Williams and Dr. Leroy Sam Tilson     Henry was a member of the Freemasonry.  On April 5, 1874, he married Phoebe Ann White [d/o Margaret White and unknown]; sister to county surveyor, David Jonathan White.  Henry and Phoebe had 5 children:  Harvey, Judah E., David Sinclair,  Lula E., Ethel Jane.  His family lived in the Lilly Dale area of Erwin.  He died a young man at age 46 and it's unknown of the cause of death since death certificate were not established until 1908.

b. October 20, 1850 - d. September 2, 1918

[w/o Dr. Henry C. Banner #209married on April 5, 1874; d/o unknown father and Margaret White [buried Fishery Cem. #267]; children:

1) Harvey B. (b. Nov. 30. 1874 -  d. )

2) Judah E. (b. Nov. 22, 1876 - d. )

3)  David Sinclair (b. July 24, 1879 - d. ) md. Cordie Stewart #118

4)  Lola E. (b. Aug. 16, 1890 - d. )

5)  Ethel Jane (b. March 12, 1893 - d. )

NOTE:  Phoebe was not found in the 1850 Washington Co., TN census as she was probably just born.  Furthermore to date, her mother, Margaret and older siblings have not been found either in the 1850 census for Washington Co., TN or the surrounding counties.  It is believed that since Margaret was pregnant during that census, she most likely was living in the Greasy Cove area because DJ, Phoebe's brother wrote a note that he contracted typhoid fever in 1853 at age 13 and was living at his grandfather’s estate:  “I lived on the old John White place in Greasy Cove in speaking distance of old Uncle Jake White and his family who moved up from Embreeville to cultivate a part of the farm which had not yet been divided between the White heirs.”  Phoebe and DJ's grandfather, John White died in 1850 and their mother, Margaret, did not die until 1854 so she was still alive taking care of the children at her father's house.  During the 1860 Washington Co., TN Census, HH 801, she was living with her Aunt Sarah White-Tipton who was taking care of her and older sister Sarah since their mother died in 1854. A couple of houses down was the Elizabeth Banner (age 40) and her children which explains how Phoebe came to know Henry C. Banner (age 10)  as children.  Per the Unicoi Co., TN land records, Book 0-52-3, dated December 1874, Phoebe White-Banner, heir of 1/10 of 45 acres of undivided land from her grandfather's estate John White sells same to her brother D. J. White and wife Margaret for $25.  Phoebe's niece, Mary White-Edwards wrote a letter to David J. White (Mary's father) in 1913 and stated "Paw, ....you and aunt Phebe were the only ones of that family that ever had any sense."  David J. White writes in a letter that "Dr. Banner died at Erwin, buried at Martin's Creek graveyard 1904 by Masonic.  Phebe also buried there , died 3rd September 1918."

Per the Unicoi Co. Death Record #604, her parents not mentioned; she died of liver disease and was a widow; informant was J. G. Toney, buried at "Martins Creek"

419. PRICE, Isaiah

Co. G., 3rd NC Mounted Infantry - Union Army

b. 1820  - d. aft. 1891

[married Rachel Steward? in Monroe Co., TN; children: Bethena, Della G., Loretha J., Ruth E., John A., James]

NOTE: He came from the Kilby District of Wilkes Co., NC and is noted in the 1840 Census.  During the 1850 Census, he (age 27) and wife Rachel (age 32) moved over to Monroe Co., TN and noted with the following children and possibly her father in the household: Bethena (9) Della (8), Loretha (5) Rutha (1) and Riley Steward (50).  Sometime before 1860, the clan moved back over to NC to the Ramseytown section of Yancey Co., an area which is near the Unicoi Co. border. 1860 Census shows: Isaiah Price (39), Rachel (43), Bethena (19), Della G. (17), Loretha J. (15), Ruth E. (9), and John A. (3).  The Civil War breaks out and Isaiah first voluntarily joined the CSA.  He signed up in Burnsville for Co. B, of the 29th NC Regiment at age 45 on July 3, 1861 and was transferred on September 16, 1861 to Co. K.  He was described as 5 foot 9 inches, fair complexion, yellow eyes, black hair and a farmer.  He became sick and was discharged on July 24, 1862 due to "chronic rheumatism of the lower limbs, inflammation of the kidneys and ureter.  (This may explain his "yellow" eyes, being jaundice.)  On September 1, 1864, at Bulls Gap, TN, age "44", he joined Co. G, 3rd NC Mntd Infantry for 3 years. His record described him as having "grey eyes, dark hair, fair complexion, 5 foot 9 inches, farmer and a resident of Wilkes Co., NC." John Shelton signed him up. In March and April 1865, he was absent from the rolls because he was in the Hospital at Knoxville "wounded in both hips"  He remained in the hospital until he was discharged on August 8, 1865 and paid $100.  He served for 11 months and 8 days. After the War he remained living in Ramseytown, and noted in the 1870 Census: Isaiah (50) and Rachel (52), Laura (24), John (14), James (10), George (5) and William (1).  George and William are the grandsons. The two daughters Bethena and Della G. are not in the household.  Living next door is Isaiah's brother, William Price (67) and his wife Nancy (66).  The 1880 Ramseytown, Yancey Co., Census shows: Isaiah (60) and Rachel (62) with no one else in the home.  Living next door is son John A. Price (23) with wife Elizabeth and their 2 children.  About 6 houses down are sisters Dilly / Della G. Price (33)  and Laura/ Loretha Price (29) living together with the following children: Rachel "daughter" (10), William "son" (10); Julia "daughter" (6).  Dilly is noted as "divorced".  Sometime before 1890, Isaiah and family moved over to Erwin to live out the remainder of their years. He was noted in the 1890 Unicoi Co. Veterans Census and noted in the 1891 Male Voter Registration Roster of Unicoi Co., TN.  Civil war pension application #U-247-1 shows "ruptured kidneys, back pain, enlargement of testicles".

b. May 8, 1903 - d. May 19, 1918

"Forever Remembered in Erwin Tennessee ~ She Drowned in the Nolichucky River at the Hands of an Evil Man"

[d/o George Valentine Collins and Fannie Webb; she worked at the silk mill]

DEATH CERT:  Tenn State death record #568; single, cause of death "strangulation, assaulted by a negro with intent to commit rape, then thrown in river"; no attending physician; born in Wash Co., TN; informant G.V. Collins of Erwin.; parents mention in record; buried "Martins Creek Cem."

NOTE:  It was alleged that 15 year old Georgia Lee Collins was abducted by Thomas Devert, (African American) when she was walking with her 7 year old brother on the railroad tracks near Nolichucky River.  Four men nearby saw Tom and Georgia in the white rapid river and shot Tom twice and Georgia drowned.  Tom was a 35 year old married man, working as a brick layer for the RR company.  He lived in Ervin for 6-7 years, "of good standing" as many businesses extended him credit and recently bought a house on Toney Street that year.  There were many versions of the story and early newspaper accounts were quick judge that Tom murdered Georgia in cold blood and failed to map out motive and sequence of events.  Wade Kegley (plot #973) was a brick mason who worked with Tom and explained years later to his descendants that he heard an altercation between white men and a black at the railroad shops and the black man tried to escape his pursuers, grabbed Collins and took her hostage into the river for protection at which time he was shot and the girl drowned.  Another account from Starlet Jean Williams, a descendant of a black family who was driven out of Unicoi Co., explained that Tom was drinking and gambling with some white men and winning their money at which time, an altercation broke out and the white men were chasing Tom at the river where he came upon the children, grabbed the girl for protection and ran into the water.  No one will know what really happened that gruesome day except that Georgia drowned and Tom was shot by unnamed white men, pulled out of the water and dragged by a rail car for 1.5 miles into town and then burned at a public gathering.  No autopsy was performed on Georgia per her death record which stated "no physician."  Racial tensions escalated and all African American families (60-70 people) were forced to leave the county.

OBITUARY:  ERWIN - June Elizabeth Banner, age 90, of Erwin, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, March 29, 2017 at the Center on Aging and Health in Erwin, TN. A native of Erwin, she was born on July 1, 1926 and was a beloved daughter of the late James Monroe Banner and Gladys Smith Banner. June was a graduate of Unicoi County High School. She hand painted pottery at Southern Pottery during the summer and attended Johnson City Business College. In 1945, she was employed by Carbide and Carbon Corporation in Oak Ridge, TN, at the K-25 Plant. She transferred to the Carbides Nuclear plant in Paducah, KY in 1949. In 1952, she moved to Chillicothe, OH and was employed by the Ohio Valley Electric Corporation’s Executive Vice President. In 1959, she returned to Erwin and that fall she was employed by the TVA’s Legal Division in Knoxville, TN while also attending classes at UT Knoxville. June retired in 1987 and after retirement, divided her time between Erwin and Knoxville, as she helped take care of her mother. She resided at her home place in Erwin for several years. June loved her wildlife: deer, turkeys, rabbits and even bears who wandered into her yard. She loved Simon, her cockatiel friend who brought much laughter and joy to her life for the past 25 years. June was a mother to many children in her family and in neighboring families. She will always be remembered by the love she expressed to these children, whom she helped through the good times and the bad times of their lives. In addition to her parents, June was preceded in death by three sisters: Nell Smith, Myrtle Lewis and Maude Nanney; seven brothers: Charlie, Floyd, Boyd, Donald, Bob and David Banner.  The family respectfully requests the honor of your presence as we offer tribute and remember the life of June Elizabeth Banner in a committal service to be at 3:00 PM, Saturday, April 1, 2017, at Martins Creek Cemetery. Pastor Jeremy Dykes will officiate.
