|Samuel E. Haines|
|Death: ||May 10, 1864|
Samuel's military file indicates that he died from wounds he received in the Battle of Bayou Lamore in Louisiana. He did not die until the next day, after the Army had moved on to Vicksburg, MS.
I have not had any luck finding any information on this particular battle in the Civil War. I have not been able to find where Samuel was buried either. My best guess would be somewhere in Vicksburg.
Since writing the above, a cousin, Curtis Haines, discovered for me that the battle Samuel fought in was actually called the Battle of Bayou LaMourie. It was mistakenly spelled in Samuel's military record. Samuel was seriously wounded May 7, 1864 in Bayou LaMourie. The Army then marched to Vicksburg, MS. Samuel died there May 10th from the wounds he got May 7th. A Park Ranger from Vicksburg National Cemetery in Vicksburg, MS informed me that there are 17,000 Union Soldiers buried in Vicksburg National Cemetery, 13,000 of whom are unknown soldiers! One of them is more than likely Samuel.
