Death certificate has him as J. J. Sailor, which tells me this is just a misspelling. His widow was Ida Rebecca Norrell and that pension was collected for his active duty during the Civil War.

Ancestry.com has his death cert. search under the name of I.I. Sailor.

This is the burial spot for Jeremiah Jackson Sailor. Born in Henry Cty, GA
Enlisted to service in Co. G, 28th Ga.Infantry 8/12/1861, held as prisoner of war from 11/17/1864 Until 6/19/1865 when he took the oath of allegiance & was released at Pt Lookout, MD He entered the TN Confederate Soldiers Home 12/17/1913.

He started out with his family as a farmer, but, possibly due to war injuries, became a painter (house).

Gravesite Details headstone is not too difficult to read. copy & use photoshop to clear it up.
