Fort Campbell Burials
February 28, 1981
When I was compiling cemetery records in Trigg County, I was surprised at the number of very old burials which had been affected by the impounding of land for the military reservation at Fort Campbell. Since so many of the names are familiar to me and could possibly provide leads to individuals working on family histories, and since the records are not easily accessible, I decided today to list the very oldest burials on the reservations. These are not just in Trigg County, but also in Christian County, Kentucky, and Montgomery and Stewart County, Tennessee.

If these names ring a bell with any reader, I may be able to give more details, as to exact dates of birth and death, which cemetery they are in, and where the cemetery is located. Some of these graves were relocated and some were not.
