The above link is his marker in Pleasant Home, AL. He is buried at Mount Hebron, Winchester, VA. My relatives finally found him back in 1998, one month before my Grandmomma passed away from a brain tumor, September 1998. She had been searching for him, all of her life. We visited Confederate Cemetaries all over the Southeast every since I can remember, looking for him, but never went as far north as VA.
