October 21, 2017, Burrus Cemetery, Rutherford County, Tennessee
Many thanks to RCHS Board member Allen Gooch for his dedication to cemeteries throughout middle Tennessee. Recently Allen cleaned up the Burrus Cemetery, located north of Murfreesboro.
You can see the Burrus home in the back of the cemetery. The Burrus home was used as a hospital during the Battle of Murfreesborough (aka the ‘Battle of Stones River’).
Eliza Ready Burrus resided with her adult daughters while the daughters’ husbands were away at war.
