Was Holly Grove a Community before Marshall County was formed? If yes, what County was it in? Where was the Holly Grove School exactly location? Any pictures of the school online? Was Holly Grove a Community during times of Slavery? Where did the settlers come from? What area in Marshall County is set side for Slave Descendants and what area is set aside for the Native Americans? If none is set aside, I would like for that to be considered by our citizens of today.

You have a computer. Try researching it. If Holly Grove was anything before Marshall county (before 1836) it would have been part of Bedford county. Marshall is made up of mostly Bedford, Giles and Lincoln counties. Cornersville was at the 'corner' of the counties before Marshall county existed.

You can look here:

Try researching "Tennessee civil war maps". Don't be so lazy.

Maybe a Belfast Map needs to be researched?

Belfast was here back then as part of District 16 of Bedford County before 1836.

Start looking at the local library or the exhibits at the old Hardison School, be prepared, you might have to do a little work.

I grew up on Holly Grove road. The school is still standing. I've looked it up before and there are pics on line.

Could you post that web site? Holly Grove Rd is where we live and the history of it would be nice. Where exactly is the school? I know there is a white building that looks like a church but I don't believe I have seen a cross. Could that be it?
I will keep looking and try to get over to the museum. Thanks.

I found a map that points to where Holly Grove School is and it does go with my memory of seeing an old wood building near a sharp curve.

How big of a area was the Holly Grove Community?

Yep, that is the school. There is also an old cemetery at the end of the lane that runs beside it. If I ever get a day off I'll see if I can locate that pic online again.

My dad grew up in that area and I think there is an old slave cemetery right around the school somewhere. I remember him talking about it years ago. Some of my family use to own the land it sits on, I'll ask and see if they still do and try to pin point the location of that cemetery.

There is an old cemetery behind the school but there is also one in front of the house my son owned on Holly Grove Rd. near the old log home. I believe it could be a slave cemetery.

Are the Slaves names known or on records for perhaps descendants living around here, today? What a picture that would make for History. Thanks.

There are names and dates on some of the markers. Most died at a very young age. I can't remember the last names though.

I wonder it the Historical Society in this area has pictures and a list for the public to see online. I like Genealogy and have braked for cemeteries but no transportation to do those wonderful outings again.
Thanks for the information.
Where I live, it used to be a barn. I had found a horseshoe and showed my neighbor and she said it used to be a barn on your place. Her Aunt used to own her house and Willed it to her brother but she wanted it so much, and bought it from him. Her Aunt owned a boarding house of which she helped her for years and longed for her rock house with the hedges. She enjoyed her rock house, hedges, and doing a lot of outdoor work in her yard. You may have known her.
