At the end of Walkup Road in Pegram, Cheatham County, Tennessee is the bulldozed Pegram Family Cemetery.
About 1970, ruthless developers bulldozed an area along the Harpeth River which included the Pegram Cemetery which was partly in Metro Nashville, Davidson County and partly in Pegram, Cheatham County.
The developers also sold dirt and other materials from the site and the river as fill dirt. Many small houses were built on concrete slabs- In 1975, The River rose 30 plus feet and one of the last coffins popped to the surface in the yard of resident Archie Greer and the local TV was on the spot with “shades of poltergeist!” The coffin contained the remains of Mrs. Carrie Pegram Heath who was the Town’s first postmistress. Her picture can be seen in the Pegram P.O. at present. Metro Nashville would have nothing to do with the mess and had the County line moved so that it was not their problem….. Cheatham County and Pegram continued to allow building and put big up-front impact fees on new building which allowed them to build a new Town Hall which has been plagued with problems including legal fees for their own mistakes amounting to over $500,000. In addition, the people who lived in the “politically abandoned” subdivision called Harpeth Haven were again flooded in 2010….. Poor Mrs. Carrie was “pushed back down” into the ground….. Just last week, the Fire department was out and the local supermarket burned…. several fires that the Fire Department extinguished have “restarted” several times. The Town built a sewer which is much troubled and not much in the Town seems to work …. people just cannot be that incompetent without some outside help…. and scattered all over the area is the soil from the Pegram Cemetery site…. Yep, its haunted!
