Have you seen this website?

The Sons of Confederacy VA Chapter created a trust and was trying to take over the task of restoring the Confederate Cemetery....this was in the "Civil War News"
"Krick cited 7,200 names "that can attach to specific graves." Another list surfaced at the Museum of the Confederacy a few years ago, however, with 5,900 dead from 1861-62. There is some overlap, but a lot of the names are not on the Oakwood list, and the museum's list offers no grave locations."
