Birth: Sep. 29, 1831
Death: Aug. 31, 1864

Confederate Chaplain, O.S.B. Father Bliemel, a native of Germany, was the first Catholic chaplain to be killed in action in an American war. He was killed while serving as chaplain of the 10th Tennessee Infantry and 4th Kentucky Infantry CSA, during the battle of Jonesboro, Georgia. Father Bliemel was on the battlefield following a Confederate attack, and as he knelt to pray with the mortally wounded Col. Grace of the 10th Tennessee, an enemy cannon ball struck his head and decapitated him. Bliemel was originally buried in what became the Pat Cleburne Confederate Cemetery in Jonesboro, but his remains were moved to Tuscumbia,Al., in 1899.
Cause of death: Decapitated by enemy cannon ball
Holy Cross Cemetery, Uniontown, Perry Co., Al.
