Note:
According to volunteer transcriptions on findagrave.com, the Waco Day newspaper in 1889 listed 22 Confederate veterans in the cemetery, along with five Union veterans and four War of 1812 soldiers. But many of those markers are long gone.
Using Google search on Greenwood Cemetery, there are many results in the history which revealed many graves unmarked, the cemetery was poorly maintained.
