OLD FLAT CREEK CEMETERY, (Flat Creek) BEDFORD COUNTY TENNESSEE
 

FARRAR, J. H. (Joseph H.), Company C, 5th Tenn. Cav., US Statesman, (no other information; old & faded military marker) 0244/0245

The 5th Tennessee Volunteer Cavalry was a Union Army unit (https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/5th_Regiment,_Tennessee_Cavalry_%28Union%29). My GG-Grandfather was in action around Murfreesboro and went home (not too far away) to visit his family. He was captured at home and spent the rest of the Civil War at Andersonville a Confederate Prison.

Joseph H. was the son of Jordan Farrar. Jordan is buried somewhere in Flat Creek, but I read somewhere that his grave may have been covered by a road. Joseph married his first cousin, Permelia Farrar, also buried at Flat Creek. Her father was John Howard Farrar. I believe John Howard Farrar is buried somewhere in Arkansas.
