Hi Charlotte.

Nathaniel applied for a Confederate Pension Applicaton in Texas:
Barksdale, Nathaniel
Application Number 30951
Johnson County

From the Texas State Library website, here is information on how to order a Texas Confederate Pension Application:
http://www.tsl.state.tx.us/arc/archmail.html

This should have his dates of birth and death, and may give information about where he was born.

I searched on Google for 8th Louisiana Infantry Company G and found this site that lists Nathaniel Barksdale:
http://www.cbt.net/jimcheat/minden.htm

I also found this on ancestry.com in the LA Confederate Soldiers db:
Confederate Research Sources
Volume 1
B.
page 122
Barksdale, Nathaniel,Pvt. Co. G. 8th La. Infty. En. June 23rd, 1861, Camp Moore, La. Present on All Rolls to May, 1863. Federal Rolls of Prisoners of War Wounded and Captured Gettysburg.
