NC Confederate Burials Database

The NCGenWeb Project is pleased to announce the availability of a new database of Confederate burials from around the state.  A project of the North Carolina Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, many volunteers are contributing to the information available. 

The database is online at  This is an ongoing project and new records will be added on a regular basis.


The site is currently searchable by name, city & county.  Be sure to try a variety of spelling to look for your persons of interest.  Each database record has multiple fields, though they may not all be filled in. Fields include the name of the person, birth date, death date, company, any remarks, county of death, cemetery buried in, cemetery address, city of burial, directions to the cemetery, latitude & longitude.

The cemetery project is managed by Keith & Myra Lanier and Myra is one of our county coordinators here in NCGenWeb.  Thanks to the NC SCV, the Lanier’s and all volunteer contributors that help make this resource available for NC researchers.

  1. I am looking for great grandfathers burial site. McCorquodale, Malcom or Daniel

      • I would think so as that is where the McCorquodale’s settled in Cumberland Co. I still have family there but no one helps so I do it myself. There is a brother named Daniel and his wife Mary. Anything you can do would help. Thanks.
