Re: Casualty list,Battle of Chickamauga

Renee,

Have you contacted the Chattanooga Natl. Cemetery to check their records as to when the date of interment was? Were the
soldier's remains removed from the Chickamauga battlefield; or perhaps the site of a field hospital elsewhere?

I'd also contact the historian @ the Chickamauga battlefield to see if they might have burial records. Were the dead from the
59th Ohio, or the brigade it belonged to, primarily buried at a specific location? Was the soldier ID'd as "JMF" among them?

I think its a good chance that "JMF" is your ancestor, but at this point in time, we'll probably never know with certainty. I doubt
they'd entertain the thought of digging him up, and comparing DNA.

Best of luck with your research !

Sincerely,

Greg C. White
