Introduction

The Cemetery Information resource is a compilation of data and a variety of primary sources about each person buried in the Carlisle Indian School cemetery. Use the table below to find information on each person interred, including the date of decease, plot location, and primary documents regarding the death and burial. Search through our collection of additional content for more information on the cemetery, including an aerial map, a comparative table, and resources on the history of the cemetery.

This resource was created in response to a number of requests for detailed information about the cemetery of the Carlisle Indian School, using information from various repositories including the National Archives and Records Administration, the Cumberland County Historical Society, and Dickinson College. The information presented here is only as reliable as that recorded in the original documents, and as such may be prone to change as additional information is shared or discovered.
