George Hovey Cadman-- Part 2: Died of Sunstroke and Body Brought Back to Cincinnati

George Cadman reenlisted 26 December 1863 and died at Marietta, Georgia, on 17 September 1864 of sunstroke and was buried in the military cemetery there, but reinterred at Old Duck Creek Cemetery in Cincinnati on what later became Edmondson Road in Norwood.

Well, that takes care of what he died of, though sunstroke is a far different cause than I had expected.  I would have figured he would have died from his wounds.

This also clears up why he is not listed among the dead at the Marietta National Cemetery.
