UPDATE: "Dates from 1877, when Fort Huachuca was founded. The first cemetery was located near the corner of Grierson and Mizner Avenues. Sixteen burials were made there before the present cemetery was opened on May 18, 1883. The earlier burials were moved to the new site. Also moved to the new cemetery site were nearly 100 bodies from old Fort San Carlos, now under the waters of Coolidge Dam. The new cemetery was closed in May 1948, but was reopened in September 1967. Though the burials are mainly those of military personnel and their families, civilians were also interred there--especially in the earlier years when it was the practice to bury there bodies found in the desert. A considerable number of the interments are unidentified." Source [August 2005]
