Lauderdale CountyThis is one of the earliest community burial grounds in Lauderdale County. The oldest dated gravestone is for Catherine Hill, first wife of Green Berry Hill, for whom the community is named. She died on June 8, 1825. George Kennedy deeded five acres of land in 1874 to the Trustees of the Methodist Episcopal Church South for the establishment of a church and cemetery. Two early circuit rider preachers are buried here, Rev. Henry Hill and Rev. William Walker. Other early families buried here include Cauhorn, Chisholm, Hill, Kennedy, Killen, LeMaster, Richardson, Strong, and Swinea. Veterans from the American Revolutionary War through the Vietnam War are interred here. The cemetery is located at Green Hill on the west side of The Andrew Jackson's Military Road.
