Elizabeth Temms was taken from her home when the Federals passed by in 1864 and shipped North (her husband was away in the ANV). She was imprisoned in the women's section of the LMP, and died there (reportedly due to mistreatment at the hands of Dr. Mary Walker). Her dying wish was "bury me with my people," which is where she lies to this day in the Confederate soldier section.
Elizabeth Temms (CS Lot 263, grave 13) was a civilian from Gordon Co., Georgia, who was arrested in 1864 for refusing to take the oath of allegiance, and brought to Louisville. She was supposedly imprisoned in an icehouse by Dr. Mary Walker, U.S. Army, where she contracted pneumonia and died. The year of death on her grave marker is 1867, but she is believed to have died in 1864 (the soldiers adjacent to her died in October and November 1864).
The Unknown buried in Sec. O, Lot 263, Grave #14, is thought to be Elizabeth Temms nephew (Find A Grave Memorial# 104836378).(Rules and Regulations...of Cave Hill Cemetery (1868), p. 39). The grave stone is unmarked.
