Parker Cemetery is located in the Lookout Valley area of Chattanooga. It is an old cemetery that is no longer in use and located on private property. It has suffered from so many years of neglect and vandalism that only three visible markers remain. There are reported to be over 100 unmarked graves in Parker Cemetery. This survey was transcribed from a survey made in 1939 by the Works Project Administration.
From Chattanooga take I-24 West and take the Browns Ferry Road exit. Turn left and travel 1/2 mile to Cummings Road. Turn left on Cummings Road and take the first street to the left. The cemetery lies 2/10 of a mile on the left hand side of the street.
