Carver - Davis (aka Feezil) Cemetery
Blount County,

GPS: N35 36.685 W83 49.103

Comment by John Ownby - The Carver Cemetary is sometimes known as the Feezil Cemetary. As late as the 60's it was still fenced and the graves had rocks to mark them. Unfortunately there is nothing left anymore, a few depressions might mark the old graves. Park records from the 30's list 6-8 graves and the current park records list the GPS coordinates as 3944302mN...244690mE

Comment by Mike Maples - You may not find anything left of this cemetery. There was only about 5 graves that dated pre-1850. Thomas Carver (whose Will states died about 1836) and his son Cornelius who died between 1840-50. One of his daughters married a Davis and a couple of Davis babies buried here also. The Carver's got tired of the Cove and moved to Cherokee by 1855. This cemetery use to be called "Carver-Davis Cemetery". It was behind the old Reuben Carver place north of the Methodist Church on a small rise.
