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
This is only a Beginning List. These ancestors
have thousands of living descendants today.
