Descendants mark Confederate graves

The Tennessean, Nashville, TN - Tuesday September 20, 2005

Research: Quarter of county men enlisted in rebel army died in war

FAIRVIEW —Members of Captain Ed Baxter Camp 2034 Sons of Confederate Veterans in Fairview this past Saturday placed military gravestones on the graves of five area Confederate veterans in Williamson and Dickson counties.

The graves marked were those of Pvt. Daniel P. Harrison of Co. H 20th Tennessee Infantry Regiment in the Hay Cemetery in Fairview; Pvt. William H. Bethshears of Baxter's Battery in the Jane Jones Cemetery in Fairview; Pvt. Harvey Clark of Baxter's Battery in the Tomlinson Cemetery in Dickson County; Pvt. Tyree Chandler of Co. K 42nd Tennessee Infantry Regiment in the Parker-Fowlkes Cemetery in Dickson County and Pvt. Jesse White of Baxter's Battery in the Stuart Cemetery in Burns.

The grave-marking effort follows the production by the Captain Ed Baxter Camp of a new book, Confederate Soldiers Of Williamson County, Tn-Final Resting Places, that lists the burials sites of more than 3,200 Confederate soldiers from Williamson and surrounding counties.

Sons of Confederate Veterans member Dennis Lampley of Fairview recently gave a presentation on the new book at a meeting of the Williamson County Historical Society held at the Williamson County Library in Franklin.

Research for the book shows that a quarter of the soldiers enlisted in Confederate service from Williamson County died in the war. 279 were killed in battle, 167 died in hospitals and camps of disease and 112 died in Union prisons.

The 167-page book includes more than 100 photos of county veterans and is available in both hard and soft covers.

Books may be ordered from Dennis Lampley at 7346 Sack Lampley Road Bon Aqua, TN 37025. (Hardbacks $30, paperbacks $20 and include $2 per copy postage.) Checks should be made payable to SCV Camp 2034.

Proceeds from book sales will go toward funding historical markers for Civil War sites in the county.

Camp 2034 meets the second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Fairview Recreation Center. All meetings are open and the public is always invited.
