It has been said that Alfred lost a leg in the war and was given 40 acres and a mule in place of traveling money to return home. There is no record, to this date, to substantiate this. Originally his tombstone was a piece of petrified wood with his name carved in it. Later a CSA tombstone was erected by his descendents to mark the grave.
