This info from a relative: "Charles and Matilda are buried in Little Prairie Cemetery, Jackson Township, Effingham County. We were there a few years ago and visited with the person who keeps the cemetery records. There is no stone for Matilda, but Charles has a stone that appears to be government issue as he was in the Civil War."
