I'd be interested in how you obtained the intelligence that he is buried in Confederate Rest, Vicksburg City Cemetery, as he is not recorded in the list of those interred there. However, we know that at least 1000 still remain as unknown. The original list of 3000 men buried there was lost over the years and only 2000 have been identified to date on recovered documents. He very well may have been buried there originally as the Stockade is just a mile from the cemetery.
