The Manassas Journal, June 10, 1904 (Prince William Co., Virginia)

"A grave, evidently that of a Confederate soldier, has been found on Mr.
Rixey's farm near town. While it is probably forgotten, if ever known by
his late comrades, it is plainly marked, "J. H. McGill, 19 Ala. Reg. 1862."
It might lead to the finding of the friends of the gallant dead, if the
press of the South would aid in promulgating this notice."

Note:

I do not find a listing for J.H. McGill on any 19th roll that I have nor does he appear to have records at
NARA or ADAH; the 19th mustered at Huntsville Aug 14, 1861 with the men having been recruited from
the counties of Blount, Cherokee, Jefferson and Pickens; six of the ten companies were recruited from
Cherokee; it served it's entire career with the Army of Tenn, and paroled at Salisbury, NC May 1, 1865.

The article, having been written in Va would lead me to believe that someone errored with ref to his
regiment as I find no evidence that the 19th Ala ever served with the Army of Northern Va; the only
regiments I find with the 19th designation who served with the ANV were from Miss and Va. 



Deo Vindice,

Homer
