References & notes

Basic service information from his Compiled Service Records via the Historical Data Systems database. Personal details from family genealogists. His memorial is on Findagrave, which suggests he was buried in Washington Confederate Cemetery Hagerstown, MD. That is possible, but he's not listed among the named men reinterred there after the war.
