David Austin Rees
Hi Janet,

Thank you for the clarification. From what the article said, my great grandfather's brother, David Austin Rees, is buried at Kennesaw Mountain. He died on the 27th of June of 1864. His father was Thomas Rees, from Eaton, Preble County, Ohio. His mother was Elizabeth Stout Griffin Rees. It's unusual that two soldiers from Ohio, both had the same name. Yes, my ancestor was w/ the 54th. I missed the point on the other soldier's regiment.

From what I can determine, my relative IS also buried in Georgia.

Thanks again,
Melinda Rees Patrie

Thank you for the information on Greenberry Waldrop. The Chattanooga records looks to have been updated with typewriters around 1928 and it seems to me the person reading the hand written records was having a hard time of it. I wonder if the cemetery might have the original hand written records in archive someplace.

In looking at the entry for Sgt. Henry Willauer (109150207) it also talks about Lewis Willauer. Can you please clarify who that entry is for?

Cash - Chattanooga National Cemetery
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=2976409

You posted a photo for a "Cash" above at Plot: E, 11585.

Is there a "Cash" marker at Plot: E, 11565 ?
I am assuming this was where William B Cash was buried. He enlisted at Catoosa County, Georgia in Company F, Georgia 39th Infantry Regiment on 04 Mar 1862. He is listed as mustered out on 21 May 1862 at Chattanooga, TN. Per his wife's widows pension application, he died of sickness shortly after enlisting.

Thank you!

KIA Chickamauga 87th Indiana
Are the KIA listed on Find A Grave for Chattanooga National Cemetery assumed to be buried there or is it just the unknown buried there? I'm trying to locate Peter Heminger, my great great grandfather.
Thanks,
