According to the death certificate his parents were E.E. Land and Peggy Wherry, both from NC.
I believe this is the same person as J.T. Land who was 20 years old when he enlisted in the Confederate States of America. He was a Private in Capt. R.W. Pitman's Company, 13 Regiment Tennessee Volunteers. He joined for duty on June 4 1861 at Germantown Tennessee.
