Birth: Sep. 7, 1867
Death: Sep. 8, 1867

District Of Columbia, USA

The person buried here is known only as the newborn child of Charlotte Beverly, who lived only one day. The child died of debility at L Street between 13th and 14th Streets, NW, Washington, DC. He or she was interred on September 9, 1867. The grave was originally numbered 5-14-6-D.

Section 27 contains many graves of African Americans buried during and after the Civil War. Civilians of all ages are numbered among these dead. Some graves in this section hold the remains of United States soldiers. Quite a few of the dead in section 27 were residents of Washington, DC, whereas others were from Virginia or Maryland. Some were free African Americans. Many were enslaved persons seeking freedom.

Why is so little information known about this person? In most cases, the full name of the person was known to those who witnessed or recorded the death. Many of these persons were originally buried in small graveyards at hospitals or camps where they died. They were reinterred at Arlington at a later date. Names were lost because of poor record keeping at camps, hospitals, or cemeteries; due to later loss of records; or as a result of deterioration of the whitewashed wooden boards that were used to mark graves in the 1860s and later, at Arlington and in other local cemeteries.
