George Hovey Cadman, 39th Ohio-- Part 5

His original letters can be found at the University of North Carolina--Chapel Hill Libraries in the Southern Historical Society Papers.  I came across them in the UNC's Civil War day By Day blog.

Army records described him as "eyes hazel. hair dark, complexion fair, height five feet seven inches.

He died in a field hospital at Marietta, Georgia, established at Saint James Episcopal and he died while lying on a wooden pew in the gallery, third pew from the rear on the right side.

St. James Episcopal Church is still there at 161  St. NE, Marietta, Georgia.
