Am seeking info on the death of Robert Sterling who reportedly died while in the Confederate Army, 6 Oct 1864 at Mobile.
Were there important confrontations going on there about that date? Or perhaps like so many others his death was not battle related. I have been unable to substantiate his service, his rank, or his death. Any clues as to sources wouldbe appreciated.
He was born in CT in 1829, Married a girl (Penelope Campbell) from TN (beautiful Southern belle, of course) and therefore had an allegiance to the Confederate cause.
