Re: burials at National Cemetery

I assume that you mean Sgt. Zara PARKER of Company G, in the Union's 22nd Michigan Infantry Regiment.

First, here's the info for his pension file:

His widow Hannah PARKER filed for a pension on May (10? 18?), 1864. Application 51399, Certificate 119991.

If you don't have the file, might be worth getting a copy (along with Zara's compiled military service record). Both available from the National Archives.

This site:

lists all the burials in the Chattanooga National Cemetery, as well as thousands more throughout the country. I did not see Zara, or any Parker that looked valid.

There is a microfilmed National Cemetery Interment Register (c1930's) in the Chattanooga Library that conceivably could list him. If you'd like, I can check on it this week. If a gravesite can be located for him, I'll be glad to send you a digital photo (no charge).

It's possible that he could have been buried elsewhere in the area, either marked or unmarked.
