Camp Ford Cemetery
New York Civil War Soldiers
Buried in the Camp Ford Cemetery
in Tyler, Texas


The following is a list of soldiers who died in Confederate prison. They all served in regiments of New York state, but they were not necessarily from Rensselaer County. The soldiers' ranks were not listed. Although I do not have any additional information about these soldiers or about the Camp Ford Cemetery in Tyler, TX, Kathleen Tadasa of Tyler, Texas, has kindly written to share local information that might help you find out more about Camp Ford Cemetery. Kathleen suggests, "You might try to find information at Smith County Historical Society, 125 South College Avenue, Tyler, TX 75702, telephone (903) 592-5993. Also, there might be some information available at the Tyler Public Library, through a reference librarian, 201 South College Avenue, Tyler, TX 75702, telephone (903) 593-7323." Many thanks for this, Kathleen!
