I have a John H Beard who died in the Civil War. He was my GGG grandfather. Unfortunately I do not have any other information about him. I had been told that he was buried in Bayou La Batre, AL (a small fishing village on the coast) but I have not been able to confirm that. He lived in the south Alabama area prior to the war which is where the Hunley was built. Can you confirm or refute a connection?
