Re: burial sites
Pete I appreciate your help on this project. I'm glad you enjoyed the story I posted, that is only a part of the whole story but as it pertained to the Tupelo area, I thought ya'll might enjoy it. Yes the house you located may be where my ancestor was hospitalized, the question then becomes when a soldier died there, where did they bury them? Easy question but has proven hard to answer. Do you think maybe they carted them over to Chesterville? I understand that there are 69 unmarked graves there that no one really seems knows much about, other than they are there. I do know we have aplace near Pine Bluff AR, called White Sulphur Springs that was a Confederate camp and hospital, there they had lots of deaths due to desease and such. The dead were so numerous that they were buried all over the are around the hospital in unmarked graves. A confederate cemetary has been established on the site now. It is a pretty interesting place. The Arkansas SCV does alot of things there and maintain the area. You might be interested in the story there there is alot about it on the other internet sites. Thanks again Pete looking forward to hearing from you.
