Vandergriff
Cemetery

Vandergriff Cemetery is located northwest of Chattanooga in the Falling Water community. The land was donated by Joseph Vandergriff.
From Red Bank, take Highway 27 north and take the Chickamauga Dam/Dayton Pike exit. Turn left and travel 5/10 of a mile turning left on Robert's Mill Road. Take Robert's Mill Road 8/10 of a mile to Barker Road which is directly across from the Falling Water Baptist Church. Turn left on Barker Road. Cross the one lane bridge and turn right on the second paved driveway past the bridge.  The paved drive curves to the left and a gravel road continues straight  up a hill. The cemetery is up the hill at the end of the gravel road. The cemetery was in good condition and looked as if it had been recently cleared. There were 50-60 graves marked only with stones and several unmarked graves. At the bottom of this list are four markers listed on the 1938 WPA survey that were missing when this survey was conducted.

Survey Completed June 27, 2001 by Dennis Wilson
