William M Lark
Birth: 1842
Nashville
Davidson County
Tennessee, USA
Death: 1922
Hermitage
Davidson County
Tennessee, USA

William is my Great Grandfather and he served in the 11th Tennessee Confederate Infantry and spent his last days at the Old Confederate Soldier's Home where he died in 1922.
He is buried with his fellow soldiers on The Hermitage.

He was married to Amanda Ford on October 18, 1865 and together they had eight children.


In the center of the cemetery is a memorial which bears this inscription:

This crude unhewn piece of everlasting granite
is here to mark the resting place of manly men.

Men like it. Firm, solid, true men who in support of principle, uncomplainingly endured hunger, cold, and privation which history cannot record.

The sturdy men grouped about this rugged stone died in The Tennessee Home for Confederate Soldiers.

This stone will stand the test of time.

The souls of the tried men grouped about it will endure throughout eternity.
