I have the centennial book of Newman, IL (1857-1957) In a story about it's Civil War Vet's it says,

"Some moved to other places and many "old soldiers" moved in and made their homes here. Among those were four who had "worn the gray"--John Richards of the 1st Battalion of Wheat's Louisiana Division, who had been in Stonewall Jackson's army in The Valley Campaign and who later served as a courier for Jackson and Robert E. Lee; John L. Teal of Co. A, 54th Virginia, CSA; H.C. Davidson and R.L. Trimble. Flowers are placed on their graves Memorial Day.

There is no other mention in the book but if you know where R.L. Trimble is, that story would indicate the others are there or nearby???

Hope this helps.
