A Veteran's spouse, widow or widower, minor dependent children, and under certain conditions, unmarried adult children with disabilities may also be eligible for burial. Eligible spouses and children may be buried even if they predecease the Veteran.

Barrancas National Cemetery was established as a naval cemetery in 1838. It is possible that it is but I highly doubt it.

Additonally, take a look at the Find A Grave website to see all of the famous memorials listed. There are over 50,000 individuals buried in the Barrancas National Cemetery.
