|Birth: ||Jan., 1864|
|Death: ||Mar., 1864|
Infant son of Major and Mrs. James Hamilton Trezevant. The baby was buried in a zinc coffin the Confederate ordnance department made out of shells of Enfield rifle cartridges and cedar.
Major Trezevant visited his son's grave in 1894 and told a newspaper reporter the following:
"I was permitted, though stationed some miles away, to attend the funeral, and after the clods had fallen on the tiny casket I uprooted a little cedar no larger than one finger and replanted it on the grave of my son. This morning I determined to find the grave and visited Oakland cemetery. There was the little marble slab, and there, too, the little cedar tree planted thirty years ago, now twenty-five feet high and eight inches in diameter, its roots gathering in their embrace the little zinc coffin made by my tender-hearted soldiers."
