Historian William Rule wrote in 1900:  "Many years ago, when Knoxville was quite a small place, what is now the southeast corner of this cemetery was laid out as a burying ground, but the location was not satisfactory to all, it being, as they thought, too far away.  People having relateives buried there could not get to their graves, the most of Knoxville being then south of Clinch Street.  Still the cemetery continued to be used, and finally the city extended out to even beyond the cemetery, as it dow now to a considerable distance both toward the north and toward the west.  Then, too, there was for a long time a difference of opinion as to what would be an appropriate name for this last repose of the dead, some favoring 'Greenwood,' some 'Woodlawn,' other 'Greendale,' still others, 'Fairview,' and others other names.  At length a lady present at one of the meetings of the association having charge of the cemetery suggested that it be called 'Gray Cemetery,' in honor of the author of Gray’s Elegy, and the suggestion was instantly acted upon, hence the name of this now beautiful place of sepulture.  To the north of it is the National Cemetery, the two being separated by a stone wall four and a half feet high.  The original company, which made application for a charter to this cemetery – Feb 9, 1850.
