War Between the States

Looking for graves of Confederate Soldiers in Floyd County or surrounding areas. If they are not marked we would like to see that the proper markers are obtained. Please post name of veteran, service information, cemetery name and location.

Since I have never been to KY, I have no idea if his grave is properly marked. Dr. Hereford was my grandfather and I believe he served opposite of his son (my great grand mother's brother) who did serve in the Confederate Army
James Henry Hereford (son of Dr.James Henry Hereford)fought at the Battle of Middle Creek
1st Corp. Co. E5 Regiment CSA
b. 5-22-1841 d. 11-17-1898
buried @ Hereford Cemetery, Prestonburg, KY

1st Corp. James H. Hereford is buried in the Hereford Cemetery in Prestonsburg. He has a VA marker noting his service for the CSA. His father Dr. Hereford, who fought for the union in the 39th Kentucky Infantry is also buried there. I don't recall whether he has a VA marker or not but will try and remember to check the next time I am in Prestonsburg.
