private in confederate army in 1861 serving under Henry McCullough in the Texas Mounted Rifles
circumstances of his death and burial at camp cooper my primary interest.
comanches? union soldiers? disease?
other violence or incident?
ben would have been about 26 yrs old.
the listing for confederate service shows middle initial of h instead of f, however since he was there at camp cooper it seems to be the same kiggins.
