"Catoosa Cemeteries" says that the Fowler family plot in the Ringgold Citizens Cemetery contains a marker for "Adolphus S. Fowler, M.D.".
An attempt to patch the stone back together has had the unfortunate side-effect of obliterating part of the date of death. This and other photographs of the Fowler Family Plot in Ringgold were taken by Ms. Karen Chastain of Chattanooga, TN, to whom many thanks.DR ADOLPHUS S FOWLER BORN Oct 2 1830 DIED [obliterated] 7 1880
The State Archives web page states that they have a collection of papers by Dr. Adolphus S. Fowler.
"Fowler, Adolphus Sherrard, M.D. Civil War Papers, 1862-1870. Catoosa, Greene, and McDuffie Co., Ga. Letters to his wife while he served as surgeon in the 39th Regt. GA Vols. Other papers relate to sanitary reports and election returns. Unpublished inventory available. (ac 47-008)"
0109.30 Update: Through the very kind efforts of Gerald D. Hodge, Jr. of Niota, TN, I have received copies of seventeen letters (either from or to Dr. A.S. Fowler) from the Georgia State Archives collection.
As the original letters were written in pencil, the copies are marginally readable. The one thing I can say for sure is that bad handwriting is apparently a Fowler family characteristic. Stay tuned for details.
