GPS Coordinates needed.
According to Civil War Soldiers from Brunswick County, Virginia, the body of Pvt. Benjamin L. Baird was buried in a lone grave about 50 yards from his home by his wife. Rev. John Lewis Floyd of Kermit, Texas, was probably the last living person who knew where Benjamin's grave was as his great-aunt Arabella pointed it out to him, CWS f BCV, pp. 46-7.
Yet he is very likely the B.L. Beard who is buried at the cemetery at the University of Virginia with many of his comrades, he having died in Charlottesville.
