January 27, 2011 Grave Matters

Welcome to another addition of Grave Matters.  Today I was going to post the Pioneer Cemetery at Hohenwald, TN and I will publish a few.  But I have been looking at the internet and there are quite a few sites posted for that graveyard.  It is the death and burial site for Meriwether Lewis.  He was said to have committed suicide at this location, but more information has come to light recently that he was murdered.

The site is on the Nachez Trace which is a wonderful drive.   That is a picture of my dog Bonnie and my husband in the background.   We are at the entrance to the Nachez Trace right outside of Nashville. Milemarker 444.

You will find the Meriwether Lewis site at mile marker 385.9.  This is also the site of a pioneer graveyard.  According to what I have been reading these are not the original markers, but rather new ones that replaced the small markers.  They put the flat ones down because it was easier to mow.  Oh, my.
