The Tenneseee Valley Authority [ TVA ] Act was passed in 1933 to improve navigability, control flooding of the Tennessee River, and provide for the Valley's agricultural and industrial development. Before the dam was flooded, graves had to be relocated to high ground.

An exhaustive effort was made to identify each grave-site and obtain removal agreements from surviving relatives and cemetery trustees. Then, graves and monuments were moved to eleven re-interment cemeteries. In the process, valuable vital record information was gathered.

This publication contains listings for those originally buried in the following cemeteries in Blount, Knox and Loudon Counties, Tennessee:

Each entry is keyed to a map which reflects the new cemetery and exact location of burial. A great resource.
