CSA Cemetery 1649 Marion

Maybe someone can email this on to someone who can help me.

I saw the Sons of Confederate Veterans website for Camp #1649 Confederate Cemetery, Marion, MS. Another cousin visited it and took photos there. Our ancestor WILLIAM K. HUDSON is buried there. We searched a long time to find him. He died June 10, 1863. AL VOLS. 31st Hundleys 2Sgt Co. D. We found where the widow collected his things but HOW DOES ANYONE KNOW WHO IS BURIED IN THIS CEMETERY? Besides the main plaque listing several names including our W.K. Hudson, there is only one marker with a name on it. There must have been some kind of document which records who is buried there or else how did they know whose names to put on the plaque? If you could help put me in contact with someone who has information about this cemetery and its history, my cousins and I should would appreciate it.


Thank you,
