Thanks so much for your response. Can you tell me how to look at the Confederate Research Sources if it's a book? Or is it an Ancestry.Com resource? It does seem to fit as the National Archives had a record for a James B. Thomas, enlisted March 8, 1862 at Mt. Lebanon (this is in Bienville Parish) and died 1862 at Sharpsburg , MD. The Sharpsburg campain was from September 16-18, 1862. 23,000 soldiers were killed, wounded or missing after twelve hours of savage combat on September 17, 1862. If he was killed in this battle, I can see that it would be very hard to have ever identified his body as most of the soldiers were buried in mass graves. I now think that the James B. Thomas that died in 1862 in Sharpsburg is probably the correct person. Somehow, on other online information that I saw, someone put the death date as September 17, 1863 and date place as Virginia.
