New York Civil War Soldiers
Buried in Key West, Florida

These soldiers were from New York state; they were not necessarily from Rensselaer County. Please note that I do not have any additional information about these soldiers or this cemetery that is not already presented here. Researchers desiring additional information are advised to contact the cemetery at this address:

Key West Cemetery
701 Passover Lane
Key West, FL 33040
Phone No.: (305) 292-8177
Fax: (305) 293-6412

In July 2007, Scott Holden emailed the following to Lin Van Buren: "I am researching the unit where a lot of those soldiers came from. I don't think they were buried in the "Key West Cemetery", which is a public cemetery; rather, [I think they were buried] in the military cemetery at the Key West barracks."

After receiving this brief note, Lin investigated further and wrote: "These people may have initially been buried at Fort Zachary Taylor in Key West, in the fort's Key West Post Cemetery. If so, then in 1927, they were among the 468 people who were REMOVED from this cemetery, which at that point was abandoned, and who were reinterred at Fort Barrancas National Cemetery in Pensacola, Escambia County, Florida, in the grounds of what is today known as the Naval Air Station Pensacola (NAS Pensacola)." Details of this removal are given at this interesting website. Here are contact details:
