John H. Stoner (1843-1863) - Civil War soldier

I am looking for the burial site of John H. Stoner, a conscript in Company D, 149th Pennsylvania Volunteers, who was born in Blair County. Pvt. Stoner enrolled (was drafted) at Huntington, Pa., on August 20, 1863, was sent to Virginia, and died in camp on Dec. 23, 1863, of pneumonia, likely from a complication from an accidental gunshot wound.

I don't know if he was buried in Virginia or in Pennsylvania, but I suspect Pennsylvania, since he had a personalized headstone, not a U.S. issue marker, and there is no record of a burial in Virginia. There is a Stoner family buried at the Carson Valley Cemetery, which could be his family, judging by census records. Any information would be appreciated.
