Actually I don't know this Thomas Howle/Howell's middle name/initial nor where he was in 1860. That is why I hope somebody stumbles across one that died at Ezra church. We know that much from a letter from a relative in the 40th Alabama. So he could be in GA or AL or elsewhere. The letter said he died on that date and the "body was left on the battlefield" Even if more than one Thomas Howle/Howell is found that died at Ezra church it would still narrow down the playing field.
