The Tennessee 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.
