NOTE: Some of the females here are listed under their maiden names.

The original cemetery was established in 1847 when Dona Teodora Martinez Romero donated land for the burial of American soldiers and civilians killed during the Taos Rebellion of 1847. The cemetery was first called "El Cemeterio Militar.' In 1852, additional land was purchased to enlarge the cemetery which was then the only burial ground for non-Catholics, and was known as the 'American Cemetery.' In May, 1869, when the bodies of Kit Carson and Mrs. Carson were buried here, the cemetery was called the 'Kit Carson Cemetery.' There are soldiers buried in this small cemetery who served during the Mexican War of 1846, the Taos Rebellion of 1847, the Indian Campaigns of the 1850's, the Civil War, the Spanish American War, World War I and World War II. Many of the early Taos traders, merchants, and members of old Spanish, French and American families are buried here. This tree-shaded cemetery within the Kit Carson Park in Taos, NM, is a park in itself - with a well kept lawn and curving paths. It is found by taking the lane that turns north at the Indian Trading Post on Kit Carson Road. Kit Carson Cemetery - Taos. Head southeast on Kit Carson Road toward Dragoon Lane, turn left at Morada Road.
NOTE: This is not a complete listing. If anyone knows of more burials in this cemetery please contribute them by sending to Karen Mitchell.
