his bros. are still interred at elmwood? the history deplorables will try to move them too if they get wind of it.Forrest requested that he be buried in Elmwood Cemetery near his four brothers who all served in the Confederate Cavalry. As per his directions he was buried in Elmwood in 1877. However, his son William, gave the consent for his father and mother’s remains to be moved about 1 1/2 miles to Forrest Park in 1904.
Now that the remains are being removed and relocated once more, why in the world would they take DNA samples from Forrest’s bones? With all the indignities this intensely proud man’s body has suffered, why would you want to do more? He was positively ID when he was buried, interred and reburied so there is no need to further prove that it is Forrest’s remains!!
