Died April 19, 1865, Eastport, Mississippi
Shiloh National Cemetery
NOTE: I believe when this headstone was ordered the handwritten abbreviation for corporal, "corpl." was misread as "capt." Considering 19th century handwriting it is an easy transcription error to make. I have checked the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System, as well as his Compiled Service Records and his Pension index card on www.Fold3.com and none of his records list him with the rank of captain at any time.
