Harmony Cemetery

Church St.
Greeneville, TN 37745

The oldest graveyard in present-day Greeneville, the tombstones date back to the 1790s. Valentine Sevier, who served as Greene County Circuit Court Clerk from 1810 until 1854 is buried here, as well as Robert Kerr, the first settler of Greeneville, and Mordecai Lincoln, a tanner, and Justice of the Peace, who performed Andrew Johnson’s wedding and was a cousin of Abraham Lincoln. The upper corner is called the “cholera section” because in 1873, during an epidemic, trenches were dug and people were buried there because they were dying faster than the graves could be dug.
