JOHNSON posted by Linda Chamberlain on Wednesday, August 31, 2005

I am searching for the grave site of James JOHNSON, who died during the Civil War. A family historian said he died in Alexandria of measles or other disease and was buried in the "Confederate Cemetery in Pineville, LA." I have checked the on-line records of Alexandria National Cemetery and cannot find the James Johnson I am looking for or a "Confederate Section." He and his wife, Melvina, had 8 children. His widow and some of her children moved to Trinity Co., TX. Any information on any of this line would be greatly appreciated.
