Duggin Cemetery - Cannon Co., Tn
Located on the Thurman Tenpenny Farm
N. of Woodbury on Hwy 145 at Sanders Fork

I have compiled this list from my personal survey of this cemetery in June 1997 combined with additional information provided by Vera Andrews, Joe Don Fann and the 1980 notes of Joe A. Davenport & Thurman Tenpenny. We have added b-dates, d-dates, individuals given names and wifes maiden names. Joe Don Fann and I are descendants of and/or related to just about everyone buried here. We know that there are more unmarked graves here and have noted the names of some that we have personal knowledge of.

The names are grouped by surname, not location of the gravesite
