Wadley Cemetery
Located north of Midland
Rutherford Co., TN

The Wadley Cemetery is located near Midland Rd. 2/10 of a mile north of the intersection with Oak Grove Rd. and about 2/10 of a mile west of Midland Rd. The last I knew the cemetery was on land owned by Dan Mitchell. On the east side of Midland Rd., across from the cemetery is a log cabin which was the Wadley home. At one time Bart Gordon lived there.

My wife and I recorded the graves in the cemetery June 5, 1985 and found the following markers:

Margaret Hill Wadley Nov. 26, 1816 Oct. 24, 1841 
Susan Wadley Campbell Oct. 3, 1832 Aug. 8, 1909 
Hattie A. Campbell Apr. 13, 1847 May 28, 1881 wife of Logan J. Nelson 
Harvey Horton Sept. 23, 1842 June 4, 1907 
Emma Horton May 10, 1841 Apr. 3, 1918 wife of H. L. Horton 

Albert Bryan Wadley recorded this same cemetery at an unknown date, believed to have been in the 1930's, and provided the following report. 

Margaret Hill Wadley 1816 - 1841 
Hattie A. Campbell 1847 - 1881 
Susan Wadley Campbell 1832 - 1909 
S. M. F. Wadley 1871 
Susan Blevins Wadley 1853* 
Samuel Wadley 1854 
Emma Horton 1841 - 1918 
Harry L. Horton 1842 - 1907 
James R. Nelson 1879 - 1879 
Wm. G. Nelson 1881 - 1881 

From Samuel Wadley's estate settlement it is known that Susan, his Wife, was still alive after Samuel Died and Susan is found in District #14 on both the 1860 and 1870 Rutherford Co., TN censuses.
