Ewing, Alexander Cemetery

NW-13: NASHVILLE, DAVIDSON COUNTY, TN. EWING LANE
 
Original Location. Cemetery surveyors visited the Alexander Ewing Cemetery on January 5, 2003. According the neighbors, the cemetery site had been disturbed about ten years before, when bulldozers entered the grounds and cleared the area. Cuttings, debris and probably remnants of tombstone markers were piled in the center of the lot. This pile was still quite visible on January 5, 2003. According to the neighbors, developers were intending to build a nursing home on the lot, but intervention by the State Archaeologist prevented this plan from taking place on this designated cemetery.
 
The Alexander Ewing Cemetery is listed on the Metro Planning Commission’s web site with Parcel ID and Map.
On January 5, 2003, only one marker was visible on the cemetery site. This marker was fallen. Upper part of marker was intact. Lower part of marker was broken across between Sarah Smith/Ewing. The names on this modern military marker:
