Directions To The Grave of I. N. Penick

I. N. Penick is buried in the Eastside Cemetery in Martin, Tennessee. From I-40 west in Jackson, take Exit 82, and head north on Hwy. 45/ N. Highland St. toward Humbolt. A few miles north you will bear to the right on 45E toward Medina. Continue through Milan and when you come into Martin stay on the business route toward downtown. (Don't take the bypass.) The road will dead end into University Street. Stay with 45E by turning right, then turn back left. Then right on Main St. Go several streets and turn left on Ellis St. Then turn right on K St. Then left on E. Hill Street. The cemetery will be on your right. Take the 8th street to the right and go nearly to the end and stop. Look to the left for the stone that sits highest on the knoll. This is the Penick monument. While in the cemetery be sure to visit the grave of E.P. Smith. He was a leader in churches of Christ, and at one time head of the board of trustees at Freed-Hardeman University. His marker is in this section as well.
