Sever Severson
In his diary. There is a picture of the diary on If you need let me know.

PHOTO DATE: 8 March 2013
DESCRIPTION: This is a photo of Sever Severson's 1864 small, leather bound diary recording events from January 1, 1864 to his death from dysentery in Atlanta in October of 1864 while serving in the Union Army during the Civil War. He was 35 and left behind his wife Martha and five daughters. The fifth daughter, our great grandmother Celia (Cecelia) Severson Leary, was born two weeks after his death. Sever's diary was apparently returned to the family and eventually passed down to Celia. Celia had two daughters Mary Leary Marks and Julia Leary Frey. Julia ended up in possession of the diary and it has been in our care since. We plan to have the diary digitized and thereby made accessible to other descendants who may be interested. Mary Leary Marks wrote a wonderful autobiography titled: Looking Back. 1977-1892. Autobiography by Mary Leary Marks. In the copy that she passed on to her sister Julia, she slipped in the piece of paper below that is scanned which provides a very good description of the diary's contents. One thing she doesn't mention is that his wife Martha Field Severson began to use the diary again in 1880 back in Black Mounds, Wisconsin to record expenses of supplies for the home. - Nancy
I will put it on Find A Grave site.

Josiah Kepler; 77256183
I am confused by the dates of death, please explain this to me. The memorial for Josiah Kepler says Date of Death is 6 Sept 1864.
Then below it states date of death is 09/05/1867.

RE: Foster Lewers
His wife Sarah is buried in East Springfield Cemetery, Ohio WITH Foster being buried with her. They are buried together in the same plot. I have seen several sources listing him as being buried in that cemetery, NOT in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Its obvious he is in BOTH cemeteries. But he seems to be buried with his wife Sarah in Ohio, and the memorial/gravestone in Tennessee is just a cenotaph. So both would be correct then and he does have two memorials.

RE: Foster Lewers
I dont get how he can be burried in two different cemeteries in two dofferent states.

According to Jefferson County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society and Civil War Grave Registration Cards, he is buried in East Springfield M.E. Cemetery in Jefferson County, Ohio, Section A, Row 7.

Mission Ridge Cemetery
I found a Tennessee Death Certificate for Marvill Green on Ancestry. It states that he was buried in Mission Ridge Cemetery, but there is none in Findagrave. Is this part of Chattanooga National Cemetery?
