I am looking for photos or additional information about Benjamin F. Burr. He served as 5th Sergeant to Company "I" of Terry's Texas Rangers (8th Texas Cavalry, CSA) during the War Between the States. Enlisted at Houston During September of 1861 and was reported killed at Shiloh, April 6th, 1864. Prior to the war he had resided in Guadalupe County, Texas.

He was born May 20, 1841 to William Burr and Amanda Jones in Lexington, KY.

His siblings were:
William E. Burr
Fanny Burr
Lemuel Burr
Louise Burr
Eleanor Burr
Florence Burr
George Burr

Any additional information about him would be much appreciated.
