I'm trying to locate where he's buried. He was killed at Corinth, but as far as I can tell was not buried on the field. His family was from Washington, ARK., but I'm not sure he's buried their either. If anyone has any info Pls contact me at my e-mail adress.
Thanks

Company E (from Hempstead County) - “Hempstead Plough Boys” Roster includes:
Gray, J D - Second Lieutenant-Enlisted at Washington, Hempstead County, Arkansas, March 1, 1862; promoted first lieutenant, April 16, 1862; discharged, June 4, 1862.

The 20th Infantry Regiment was ordered east of the Mississippi River along with the rest of General Earl Van Dorn's Army of the West. The regiment was added to a brigade commanded by Brigadier General Albert Rust. The unit boarded a steamer at Des Arc, Prairie County, Arkansas, and moved down the White River, out at its mouth, then up the Mississippi River and landed at Memphis, Tennessee, on April 11, 1862. The regiment was immediately ordered with the remainder of Rust's Brigade to Fort Pillow, Tennessee, approximately 50 miles north of Memphis. The unit departed Memphis via steamer on April 12, 1862 and arrived at Fort Pillow on April 13, 1862. It was here, during the bombardment of Fort Pillow by Union gunboats, that the men saw their first enemy fire. The unit remained at Fort Pillow for fourteen days. The unit experienced few casualties in the bombardment during its stay at Fort Pillow, but many of the soldiers became sick, and several died due to the very muddy conditions and poor water supply at the fort. Confederate troops evacuated Fort Pillow on June 4, 1862 in order to avoid being cut off from the rest of the Confederate army. J.D. Gray was discharged on June 4, 1862.
