In an effort to locate the grave for Sanford Ellison Pruet in the
Nashville City Cemetery, I found many markers that were no longer legible.
I phoned an information number concerning genealogy history. They informed
me that in according to an article in the Nashville Newspaper dated 1867,
Sanford Ellison Pruet's remains were transferred from a common grave in the
Nashville City Cemetery, to Mount Olivet Cemetery, 1101 Lebanon Pike,
Nashville, Tn. 37210 ~ Phone # 615-255-4193.
When going to the Mount Olivet Cemetery, I found that the body was
buried in the Confederate Circle, which has a tall monument marking this
distinctive place. There was not a marker for Sanford, but I found markers
for soldiers in his same company and Regiment: Co. I, 30th Regt. Alabama.
Perhaps they would have fought side by side.
I was informed that if a form was filled out, concerning S. E. Pruet,
the government at no cost to the family, would place a marker for him in the
same section with his Alabama Company, in the Confederate Circle.
Roberta Isenhower will fill out the form so a marker will be placed.
