"I believe I know where the remains of this soldier are buried. He was originally buried on the battlefield in a stone pile, 6 feet from a locust tree near George Burgan's well. This area is known as 'The West Woods'.

My source of information is from a very rare book that was published in 1869 by the State of Maryland called "A descriptive list of the burial places of the remains of Confederate soldiers, who fell in the battles of Antietam, South Mountain, Monocacy, and other points in Washington and Frederick counties, in the State of Maryland". His body was eventually disinterred and placed in an unmarked grave within Washington Confederate Cemetery in Hagerstown, Maryland." per

For anyone not knowing what a 'CENOTAPH' is... a memorial marker placed for family while the remains are actually buried elsewhere, at sea, scattered, or unknown.
