Do believe from all that i've seen and have been reading on the 37th Ms. that they were in the Tyner Station area at this time, as they came to Chattanooga, Tn. from N.E. Ms. in July of 1862.
Mostly what is in fact a hard thing to work with is the 37th Ms. Inf. has so little known about it's movements during this period, and that this makes it ever so hard to pin them down to one place at this time and place. I know from reports and dairies of the Ms. Regt. being in an area of about 6 miles to the northest of Chatt., Tn., but not sure as to how close this puts them to Tyner Station or the area around the Silverdale Cemetery. I have a picture of a field hospital from this time in 1862 and upon looking at it closer you can see what looks like Ms. and Ala. soldiers in this field hospital, But again cannot confirm the photo as being in this area for sure.
would like to help this gentleman find his ancestor and I do believe I'm on the right track and in the right area, I just need someone with a real good working knowledge of the 1862 Chattanooga area to help fill in some pieces.
This by far has been one of the hardest searches that I have done in over 20yrs of Confederate Cemetery Searches.
