Hi Donnie I added his military info & templates, as well as, some info about his unit. Some family trees on Ancestry are suggesting that he died 10 July 1862 in Lynchburg, VA. I have not found anything to support that. However, his unit fought in the battles near Richmond about a 10 days before this. Perhaps he was wounded in battle & retreated to Lynchburg, about 60 miles west of Richmond (the union army was approaching Richmond from the east). Further research into casualty records may give support for this.
