Private Edwin J. Everden
Served with Co. A 143rd New York Vol. Inf. during the Civil War of 1861-65
He enlisted at Moniticello NY Oct. 8th 1862 for 3 years and listed his occupation as a Farmer.
Sadly his Civil War ended for him on a Hot July 20th 1864 when he was Killed during the Battle of Peach Tree Creek GA.
The sad part was that his Regiment the 143 NY Inf. was not even engaged in the Battle that day, In fact Edwin and a few other members of his Company climbed to the top of a near by hill to watch the battle when a stray (?) Confederate Shell exploded over head killing Edwin and 4 others. (The only Loss's for his Regiment that Day) He was Buried near the site of his death Until the late 1860s When His Remains were moved to the Marietta National Cemetery GA
Plot G. Grave No. 6826
He left behind a widowed Mother Sarah Everden who was paid a Monthly Pension of $12 until her death on Dec. 10th 1896

The Attached Tin Type Photo is from my Personal Collection and Scrached on the back it reads " Edwin J. Everett (Name Misspelled as there was no Everett in the 143rd NY) 143rd New York Vol's Killed in Georga (sic)
If your ever at The Marietta National Cemetery (Near Atlanta) Stop in and have a look, And as you look upon all the Graves Remember that one of them is Edwin J. Everden, And think of that Poor Billy Yank buried in the Soil of the South never to see or Rest in his native state of New York. Because after reading this your no longer strangers.

The battle of Peach Tree Creek was on and near the Peach Tree Creek on the northeast corner of Atlanta, Ga. - not in Peachtree City in Fayette Co.
