List of the Georgia Civil War Dead Buried in the Shenandoah Valley

Provided by Sheryl Padgett

 Feb. 17, 2006: I found an article in the Augusta Chronicle & Sentinel, from 1866, that includes a list of Georgia soldiers buried in Our Soldiers Cemetery. The sister-in-law of the doctor who treated these men, sent it hoping to raise money for a monument to the soldiers. 

  W. G.(Washington Green)  Oglesby Co D 48th Regt. Ga. Infantry, husband of Maria Hillis Oglesby, son of Daniel & Drucilla Heath Oglesby,  was on the list.

Georgia Dead


List of Confederate Soldiers now buried in Our Soldiers Cemetery, near  Mt. Jackson,  Shenandoah County, Va.

Messrs.  editors:-  I will thank you to publish the subjoined list of Georgia Soldiers buried in Our Soldiers Cemetery, near Mt. Jackson, Shenandoah County, Va.  It was furnished by one of the many noble women of Virginia now engaged in the pious work of honoring the remains of those who suffered and died  for the cause,  in our late struggle for independence.  She writes: 
We of course feel an especial interest in the little cemetery where lie those whom the loving hand of my brother-in-law, Dr. M., had tried to rescue from a too early grave, and are doing all we possibly can to raise a monument to their memory, but after enclosing the cemetery, our funds are exhausted.  The list is sent to our acquaintances in the different States, to enable all who desire to aid us to add  ever so little to our exhausted treasury.
  I am authorized Messrs. Editors,  to state that the relatives and friends of the soldiers named in the list above mentioned, and all others who wish to aid as suggested, may send their contributions to Miss C.E. Walton (at the residence of Mr. Robert Walton, sr., No. 287 Broad street, Augusta, Ga., who will promptly place them in the hands of the Committee of Ladies in charge of the Cemetery.
