I checked out Find-A-Grave and here is what they said. Forrest died in 1877, and was originally buried in Elmwood Cemeteary. Jefferson Davis was the orator. Thousands marched in the funeral procession.

In 1905 the bodies of Forrest and his wife were moved to Forrest Park.

The park has now been renamed Health Sciences Park!:X

As the photos below show, it looks like they are buried under the statue. Hope the PC crowd doesn't strain them selves lifting it!!
