Burial information from Pruett,1 as a Corporal. He has stones at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Frederick, MD and may still be there. His service from Fincham's roster,2 sourced from Tod L. Molsworth's O'Neal's 26th Alabama: the Little Regiment that Did (2000), which says he was killed outright on South Mountain. He's also listed as killed in a casualty list for Rodes' Brigade in the Montgomery Weekly Advertiser of 8 October 1862, as Pvt. J.L. Robison.
