Bio and Links
Bio Photo My mother had done family history research years before it was available on computers. I started out as the data entry person for all the information she had collected. I continue to search and research family lines.

Coming from a family of veterans who served (mother, father, brother, husband, father-in-law, brother-in law, uncles and nephews) I try to include memorial pages for veteran's who do not have pages and I try to include additional information for those veterans who have pages.

I have great appreciation for the volunteers on Find A Grave who photograph the stones of people they do not know and photograph memorials of our veterans who are buried in military and civilian cemeteries.

You are welcome to use photos of memorial stones at any time anywhere you wish. Please ask to use photos of people before you do.

George W. Butram, CSA
Thank you so much for the going beyond the call of duty to help with this brave soldier. Yes, I would like to have pictures of the monuments for the 25th on his memorial page. I am also going to post this message on it. I will give some more thought to which cemetery I cite as the most likely place for his burial.

Again, thanks for a job well done.

Sincerely, Anna Bertram, Find A Grave #47006901

Subject: Find A Grave Correction: George Butram

Greetings,

Find A Grave contributor Memory Keeper2 has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for George Butram.
Link to memorial: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=135013571

Their suggestion:
-------------------------
Hello Anna,
I went to the Chickamauga Battlefield today to see if I could find more information about George W Butram.

I spoke with a volunteer who was able to access some of their records of the 25th TN in their library. We found a notation in the book, “Military Annals of Tennessee” for Bertram, George, k. (killed) at Chickamauga. George Bertram is listed in Company D of the 25th TN Infantry, Captain Luther B Myers.
George may be buried at Chattanooga but I was told that very few Confederate soldiers were buried in the Chattanooga National Cemetery. Most of the Confederate soldiers were buried in Confederate Cemeteries. There are two Confederate Cemeteries in Chattanooga. One, however, according to a monument, 155 unknown soldiers who died in hospitals were buried there. The monument is dated 1862. The other Confederate Cemetery in Chattanooga has an interesting history.
http://www.scv-nbforrest3.com/cemetery.htm

There is also a Confederate Cemetery in Marietta where many of the Confederate soldiers were buried. It does not list George Bertram/Butram/Buttram; however the website for the Marietta Confederate Cemetery mentions:
“The city of Marietta acquired a little over two acres from a man by the name of William Bosley for soldier’s burials. It was not long until additional property was needed and two plus acres were purchased from Ann Moyer.
The last portion of the cemetery was a donation by Jane Porter Glover, the widow of the first mayor of Marietta. Men who died around the battle of Chickamauga and whose bodies were left around the Battlefield area were interred in this section of the cemetery after the war. When you visit here you will find over 3,000 graves from confederate states and including Kentucky, Missouri, and Maryland."

I am probably not going to be able to find a stone marker for George Butram in the Chattanooga National Cemetery. He is not listed in their registry or on the national gravesite registry. The unknown men, who were mostly Union soldiers, and who were buried at the Chattanooga National Cemetery during the Civil War era only had numbered markers with no names attached to those numbers.

Would you like me to try to take some photos of the markers for the 25th TN Infantry unit that George served with at the Chickamauga Battlefield. You might want those posted on his memorial page.

I am sorry I could not find more.

P.S. for Sgt George Butram
I forgot to mention that alternate spellings for his surname are Buttram and Bertram. He was referred to as G.W. Buttram in the history book about his bravery at the Battle of Chickamauga.
