--Private James L. McNair, Co. C, 31st Georgia, died 28 July 1863, probably at the US General Hospital in Frederick, Maryland, buried in grave 207 (source: Greg Coco's book, Gettysburg's Confederate Dead). He had been wounded 1 July in the left shoulder at Gettysburg, and captured at Falling Waters on 14 July.
--Corporal John Langford, Co. E, 60th Georgia, died 10 August 1863 at the US General Hospital in Frederick, buried in grave 212, except for his left femur which had been in the collection of the Museum of Health and Medicine as specimen 2202 (source: Coco's book). Langford received a bullet wound in his left femur at Gettysburg on 1 July and was captured on 5 July. I can attest to the bullet wound as I have seen his femur on display at the American Civil War Center in Richmond, Virginia.
--Private Benjamin H. Boyd, died 28 July at the US General Hospital in Frederick, buried in grave 208 (source: Coco's book). Boyd was another casualty of Gettysburg.
