Confederate Soldier, 11th Battalion, Georgia Artillery (Sumter Flying Artillery), Co. D. Enlisted May 15, 1862 at Americus, GA by Captain J. A. Blackshear for duration of war. Appointed wagoner.

The Confederate graves area of this cemetery consists of small block markers with only grave numbers, no names at all and looks to be 3 bodies per grave. Currently (2010) the local Sons of the Confederate are working on documentation every grave and placing "name markers" on them.
Plot: Because of the date he was buried, 7/5/1862, he would be in Section C, in Rows G, H, or I. As more graves are confirmed, it is possible that a more exact location can be determined.
