Confederate Soldiers Buried in Roane/Loudon County
Compiled by Robert L. Bailey


Note: I have worked on this, on and off, for several months. I have decided to go ahead and post it even though it is incomplete. If you know of any Roane County Civil War Soldiers that are not already on this list, let me know and I will add them. One way used to compile this list is by using companies that are primarily regiments from Roane County. In using those lists it is possible that there are people on this list that are from a neighboring county.
