Southern Watchman, Sep. 7, 1864 , page 3.
One of our new members, @cline19d2 is seeking help from anyone who has information about individuals killed in a train collision at Barnesville, Georgia on Sept 1, 1864.
Specifically, a casualty list and/or names of any individuals involved? The soldiers involved were supposedly buried in a mass grave. A burial scribe reportedly recorded the names, but a list has not been located. At one time, there may have been an obelisk and markers, but they have since been removed.
This situation is URGENT. The city owns the land where the solders are supposed to be buried. The city has been granted a permit to move graves, but without evidence that the graves exist, there is fear that the soldiers will not be included when the cemetery is relocated.
If you can help, please post information or reply to @cline19d2 by private message. Thanks!
