Carroll Estill Burnette

North Tennessee Preacher

The name Carroll E. Burnette was introduced to this write only a short time ago. It has been my privilege to know his son and daughter-in-law, Earnest and Carolyn Burnette for several years. His grandchildren worship with us at the Buford church of Christ where I preach, and I have known them since my high school days.

Carroll E. Burnette was a long-time preacher on and around the Tennessee and Kentucky border. He preached the unsearcheable riches of God all through the hills and valleys of the Clay County region. To those in churches of Christ in this region, he was known and beloved for his committment to Christ, and his example of faithfulness. Only eternity knows the good did, and continues to be done through his children and grandchildren, and a host of others in whom he touched.

It is a pleasure to have C.E. Burnette listed among many of the dead in Christ on this website.

Head out of Celina, still on Hwy. 52 another 12 miles or so and turn right on Clementsville Road (There should be a small Church of Christ on the corner). Turn right and head out Clementsville Road. When it dead-ends, Old Mulkey Road goes to the right. Turn right and immediately on your left will be the Clementsville Cemetery. Enter the drive up to the cemetery.
