One of Hamilton County’s smaller cemeteries sits inside a busy industrial park in Chattanooga. The Stubblefield family cemetery on Hickory Valley Road is surrounded by a hum of activity in the Enterprise South industrial park.

According to the website of the Hamilton County Genealogical Society, which cites a 1939 WPA survey, the cemetery includes the remains of David Phillips, A. V. Stubblefield, and Stella C. Stubblefield, all who died in the early 1900s.
