This volume of the is the first of three volumes to cover the grave removals by the Tennessee Valley Authority in the area of the state of Kentucky/Tennessee behind the Kentucky Lake Reservoir. When T.V.A. constructed the dam, engineers survey the entire basin of the lake and located all of the cemeteries. Crews then were assigned the task of contacting descendants of every grave to get permission to remove those graves or to leave them. They required a signed permission form for each grave.

In this volume, you will find a cataloging of the cemeteries that were involved with a plat map of that particular cemetery and a listing of the graves with the age, date of death, cause of death and the re-internment cemetery if the grave was removed. This is the only source of this information and relationship of one grave to another since the cemeteries are now under water.

The counties involved in this volume are: Calloway, Lyon, Livingston, Marshall and Trigg Counties in Kentucky.

Example from this volume:

#665 LASSITER CEMETERY - Located on Land Map 53, Tract GIR-2366F. All twenty-five graves were above elevation 396. Access is flooded. This is an old abandoned cemetery containing four monuments. Remain permits were executed on ten of the graves, only four of which could be identified. No one could be found to request that the fifteen remaining unidentified graves either be moved or left undisturbed.
