There is a transcription of the Confederate (and some Union) Soldiers buried at the Bethel Confederate Cemetery in Knoxville, TN.

Here are some excerpts from both the transcription, and from a general documentation of the cemetery:

"More than 1,600 Confederate dead lie buried in this cemetery including three hundred soldiers who were killed in the battle of Fort Sanders."

"In addition to the original 1465 graves and the 105 battlefield dead from Fort Sanders, the cemetery also became the resting place of 50 prisoners of “Union men” as well as 50 unidentified Confederate soldiers. Thus, approximately 1670 dead from the Civil War period, including Confederate soldiers from every southern state, came to rest in the county cemetery."

Both links, for the transcription and the documentation, are found near the bottom of this page:
