The Patrick Cleburne Cemetery is located where the old train depot was in Jonesboro. There are estimated to be 600 and 1000 soldiers buried there, but no list is available at this time.

The first person buried there was a Brooks that was wounded at the battle of Ezra Church. He died on the train so when the train arrived in Jonesboro, they buried him in a field.
