Graves in Prattville's Doster Cemetery

Dragoon's are fortunate to have many members who are active local historians including compatriot Tyrone Crowley who provided a copy of an archived listing of those buried in the Doster family cemetery in Prattville.  Included are Absolom Doster who was a member of the Alabama state legislature and the head of one of the prominent founding families in the Prattville area.  His son Charles was a Confederate veteran.  This cemetery was identified by Dragoon's Quartermaster Bill Myrick who led the cleanup restoration effort by the camp recently at this cemetery.  Below is a fascinating list of those citizens of Prattville buried in the Doster family cemetery including a map/layout.
