Birth: unknown
Death: Aug. 18, 1861

This is the grave of Samuel L. Arrington, not Samuel B. Arrington.

Samuel L. Arrington, born ABT 1795 in Virginia, moved to Tennessee at a young age, living first in Hickman County before settling in Lawrence County. He married Winifred Rhodes, whose burial location is unknown. Their daughter Araminta T., wife of L. Mino Bentley, is buried in the Bentley plot next to Samuel's. Their daughter Martha J. Tarkington (Memorial # 92771996) is buried in Riverside Cemetery, Jackson, TN.

Samuel L. was a farmer and land speculator, at one time owning several thousand acres. Misfortune struck and by 1860 he was a pauper living in the County Poor Farm. He passed away the following year and L. Mino had him interred adjacent to the Bentley plot.

In the 1990's, a group erroneously identified this grave as belonging to Samuel B. Arrington, a doctor who joined the CSA on Dec. 31, 1862 and served until Aug. 5, 1864, when he was released from Camp Morton in Indiana after signing the Oath of Allegiance.

Soldiers Grave

Tread lightly, 'tis a soldiers grave,
A lonely, mossy mound;
And yet to hearts like mine and thine
It should be holy ground.

Speak softly, let no careless laugh,
No idle, thoughtless jest,
