Lost Confederate Headstone
Contributed by Robert D. "Danny" Ricketts  March 7, 2007

Robert D. "Danny" Ricketts contacted me about the grave of T.E. Rives:

"There is a stone in the Danville, Virginia National Cemetery which reads "813 T. E. Rives Wis.."  I believe that this should be Mississippi and not Wisconsin.  Confederate records list Thomas E. Rives of the 12th Mississippi, Co. H. Capt. Hastings as dying on May 18, 1862 of Typhoid Fever in the Danville Hospital.  He was obviously buried there by mistake".
