Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Nashville, Tennessee
The grave of F.J. Barton, Private Company D and George R. Fowler, Company I are at Mt. Olivet, but I could not locate them. This is probably an oversight on my part, those who know me, know I make them. Most of these graves were relocated from Nashville City Cemetery to Mt. Olivet. Our thanks to Tim Burgess for his unrelenting campaign to save and record the Confederate burials in Nashville.

Tennessee Section
Section 53, Grave 25
Thomas W. Cely
Company C, Sixteenth South Carolina
Died of Wounds, after the battle. He finds himself forever with his brothers from Tennessee, who were commanded by General Pat Cleburne on the Columbia Pike in November of 64. Not bad company for all eternity! He will probably flank them all and get to heaven first.
