References & notes

Burial information from Pruett1, who has him as John Leyden. Further detail from Booth2, who says he was also listed as John Lighten. He is also recorded among the Confederate soldiers buried at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Frederick, MD (source of his date of death), with two gravestones, and he may still be there. Mt Olivet also has his name as John Liden.
