Benjamin C. SPECK burial query
December 28, 2013 05:29AM
I am having difficulties locating the cemetery listed for the above named individual. Benjamin C. Speck was born 27 Oct 1844, in Overton Co, Tennessee, and died 30 Mar 1902, Overton Co, Tennessee. According to information sent to me a while back he was buried in Zion Hill Cemetery, Putnam Co, Tennessee, but I can't find anything about that cemetery. Is this the correct name for the cemetery or is there another name for it? I'm trying to locate burials for family members when I go on my trip this summer to Kentucky and Tennessee. Any information will be greatly welcomed. Thank you in advance.

As far as I know there is not a Zion Hill Cemetery in Putnam County TN. There is one in Overton County, the cemetery book does not list a Benjamin C Speck, there are Specks in the cemetery. He may be buried there in an unmarked grave.
Good Luck
