Bill, hope you are still at this address. Wish I had seen your query earlier.

I was at Beulah Cem. last month. There was a ceremony placing a marker at my great grandfather's grave (CSA marker). Members of the local chapter of the Sons of the Confederacy were dressed in uniforms and presented the flags, etc. They had done some research and found 10 men, other than my ancester, who were Conf. soldiers. One man stood at each of those graves, and answered "roll call" for them. Pvt. J. W. Loving and Pvt. Andrew J. Moats were two of the ten.

I usually go up there once a year. Email me if you still haven't gotten your photos, and I'll make them for you next time I go.
