List of People Buried in the City Cemetery
with Descendants who have contacted
the Nashville City Cemetery Association


During the past five years, many people have sent the names of their ancestors to the NCCA. We have listed below are only those ancestors for whom we know the first and last names. Most of these ancestors have tombstones which were recorded in the 2005 Survey. Please, check the Index to read their inscriptions. For some ancestors, Interment dates have been listed because, at this time, their tombstones no longer exist or their inscription could not be read due to age or weathering. For some of these ancestors, new markers have been installed, such as A. A. Adams, Joseph Litton and his wife Catherine Warren Litton, the Benjamin R. B. Wallace family, Washington Cooper, Joseph W. Price, and Levi Price. The Metro Historical Commission has established guidelines for the installation of new markers and should be contacted for more information

This is only a Beginning List. These ancestors have thousands of living descendants today. Nashville City Cemetery Association would like to hear from you about your ancestors at the City Cemetery. Please, contact us at or mail to P.O. Box 150733 Nashville, TN. 37215.
