Your ?s:

So how many CW veterans buried in  the Cem are there because of  CW wounds?

Good  question....

A very loose guess of CW dead for me is around  50k.   Maybe 30k?
So a good chunk of the total number of people buried there?
Question # 2. It is 1000s of years old.
I doubt that.
  I think the  first person buried 
there, in the  plantation, is along the long staircase  leading from the 
of the  hill going to Robert Todd Lincoln.  It is quite  decayed.  The  
name is 
available on Wiki.

Let's make it easy.  Who lived there when GWP Custis and his family  lived 
there, and who lived there when Robert E. Lee and his family lived  there?
Best Regards,
Al Mackey
