I'm reading The Small Adventure of Popeye and Elvis, by Barbara O'Connor (I am 9), and I discovered that the Coonhound cemetery described in the book is THIS cemetery. I have two coonhounds (rescued) here in Chicago. They love to hunt the neighborhood coons, possums, bunnies and squirrels. Maybe we can bring Millie and Bonnie to this cemetery one day. I love my coonhounds!!!

My wife and I visited back in the summer of 2010 when we visited some friends who told us about the cemetary. Being birdhunters here we love all hunting dogs. There is nothing like hunting with a good dog, whatever the game might be. They all love to run and hunt and are always so eager to do it.
Seeing all the headstones and the feelings the good folks have for their coon dogs shows us just how attached we all get to those special dogs. And rightfully so, those dogs hunt for us with a determination and enthusiasm you just dont see anywhere else.
Thank you for a cemetary that has left its mark on our hearts forever. This is a special place and you feel it when you walk amongst the grounds.

My grandfather sold my daddy's champion coon dog "Space" for a '49 Ford, automatic rifle and $35 back in '69. Rumor has it, the man who bought him, buried him here. I can't wait to come visit the cemetary to see if we can find dad's ol' coon dog :)

My daughter and I stopped by the Coondog Memorial Graveyard this passed Tue. 9/12/12. I had been there before and wanted her to see it. I was as moved this time as I was before. This time there were flowers on all the graves. There were also pennies on some of the tome stones. We read in the brochure that there were Labor Day activites there. Can anyone tell me what the pennies represent. If you have not had a chance to go and visit, you must put it on your list. I garentee you will be moved.

A tradition of loved ones will not be forgotten and to bring good luck to the coin tosser like tossing a coin in a wishing well.

Thanks for the web site. I had heard of this graveyard a long time ago and never been able to find out more about it. I want to see a picture of the obelisk style stone tree with the hounds baying up it that I believe is there. I collect postcards and would love to acquire postcards showing the graveyard and that stone in particular. Are there any available??

Contact the Colbert County Tourism and Convention Bureau to see if they have any postcards:

Believe it or not, many coon hounds find their way to New Hampshire and Maine. Our rescue walker coon hound came with 12 others in a van to Portland, Maine. All were adopted out, hopefully, to good homes. While some are used for hunting here, most become pets. Our dog Reesie is originally from KY. Man, is she loud! But she went from a scrawny, neglected pup to a happy dog! Beautiful animals, and don't you just love the ears! Nice cemetery!!! Thanks for the site!

Coonhounds are all over the country as they are hunting dogs. Just like any other hunting dog breed.

You will even find them in South America, Africa and etc... as hunters from those countries also use Coonhounds to hunt with.

Coonhounds are not just a southern thing.

Coonhounds are used for coon hunting, bear hunting, lion hunting and etc...

I recently visited the coon dog cemetery and I was not able to locate Troop's grave. I would like to come back one day. Could you tell me where is grave is located in the cemetery. Thanks

Buckshot 8-22-2012 01:49 AM
When you are looking at the covered pavillion, Troops grave is located right at the left end of the Pavillion.

It is behind the tree with the sign that says "Only Cemetery Of It's Kind In The World".

I heard about this place years ago. I'm not into hunting or anything like that, but I love bloodhounds and coonhounds. They are the greatest dogs and everyone who has one says they are the best family dogs, since people don't really do coon hunting around here! I don't know if I will ever see this graveyard but I looked at the photos. It's the most touching, sweetest thing, how much these people just loved their dogs. You can just see how heartbroken they were to have to say goodbye to their best friends. They really can't be replaced, but they can't be forgotten either.

Was traveling through Tuscumbia this morning and saw the brochure. I wasn't planning on making a side trip, but I am glad I did.

What a great place.

I like a good dog more than I like a lot of people.

I visited the coon hound cemetary today. I'd found out about it on Roadside America. I was so impressed with it, and saddened for all those lost dogs. It's so hard to lose a loved one; they're part of the family. Thank you for sharing this with all of us who love dogs.
