About WALDROP CEMETERY

Waldrop Cemetery was named for the James Calvin Waldrop Family who donated the land for the cemetery. The first marked grave is that of Jemima Guest Gentry. Legend says that the Gentry family passed by a hill of cedars near the road leading to their home on the Old Pinehill Road, in 1872. The mother, Jemima, remarked that she wanted to be buried in that grove of cedars. A few weeks later, June 18, 1872, Mrs. Gentry died and the owners of the land, the Waldrops, gave permission for her to be buried in the cedar grove.
