P.H. Farley, 20th VA INF, CSA

I recently came across Mr. Farley's gravestone in the middle of a wooded property adjacent to mine in Amelia County Virginia.

So far I've come up with very little information. I've found where a pension had been applied for from Gibson Co, TN. Also found a link to a marriage in the same county.

Mr. Farley is buried with 11 (est) other graves marked only by head and foot stones (rocks). His is the only carved headstone and appears to be the standard govt issue civil war stone. The inscription is in the subject line, verbatim.

He is of no relation to me, but I am concerned for the preservation of this seemingly forgotten civil war veteran burial site. There is currently quite a bit of logging activity on this property. Any information on lineage or contact from living descendents would be appreciated.
