Lauderdale County

Florence City Cemetery
Lauderdale County is located in the northwest corner of the state and is bordered by Tennessee, Mississippi, the Tennessee River, and Limestone County. The county was established in February 1818, and the city of Florence, the county seat, received its charter in 1819. James Madison and Andrew Jackson were early landowners. Ferdinand Sannover, an Italian engineer, was hired to lay out the city, and he chose the name Florence after his favorite city in Italy. Two acres outside the city proper, but within the town limits, were reserved for a cemetery with burials beginning in 1821.

Lauderdale County Cemeteries

Lauderdale County has approximately 300 known cemeteries with the Florence City Cemetery being the oldest in the city. Most have been surveyed and over 52,700 legible inscriptions have been recorded.
