Hugh Weedon Mercer
Birth: Nov. 27, 1808
Fredericksburg
Fredericksburg City
Virginia, USA
Death: Jun. 9, 1877
Baden-Baden
Baden-Badener Stadtkreis
Baden-Württemberg, Germany

Brigadier General, CSA. There is some question on the exact location of his grave, with some feeling that he is buried in Baden-Baden, Germany, where he died, and was initially buried. However, records indicate that his body was brought home to Savannah, Georgia, in 1879, and his grave there is marked in Section F, Lot 19, grave #7, in Bonaventure Cemetery.
