Remarks: Betterley is not buried in Nashville National Cemetery as the Findagrave Memorial indicates. He is not listed in the cemetery database, or in the NCA database, which is funny, since Veterans Affairs originally created the Memorial. The Section/Headstone listed, A14294 fall way outside the # of graves in that section. Neither of the contesting widows were granted a pension. The answer might be in the pension applications?
