Many of the men from the First Alabama Cav. who died in and around Corinth are buried in the National Cemetery at Corinth, 1551 Horton St., Corinth, MS 38834.Is your ancestor Nathan Thompson?I just checked the cemetery records and did not see a record of him there.Unsure why.A couple of possibilities: His name is spelled wrong in the cemetery record or his family arranged to have his remains sent home for burial.
My g-grandfather also was a member of Co. L, First Alabama Cav.If your ancestor is Nathan, you may wish to know that he is mentioned in the book, "Southerners in Blue: They Defied the Confederacy."Here is what it says about him on p. 107, "Many fell sick to numerous contagious diseases that were attributed to 'crowd poison.'Forty-one-year-old Nathan Thompson, of Fayette County, died of pneumonia after just a few weeks at Glendale.Bowel compains also hit the Alabamians particularly hard."I hope this is helpful.
