I am looking for someone in the Alexandria area who could take a picture of a tombstone for me. The 26th Indiana and 19th Iowa were captured at Stirling Plantation, Louisiana on September 29, 1863, and were taken to Camp Ford near Tyler, Texas. Prior to their arrival there was no stockade, and the influx of nearly 800 prisoners created a panic. The guards were insufficient and armorers from the Ordnance Works were sent out to assist in the guarding.
On November 11, 1863, as the stockade was being erected, Frank Smith, an armorer, fatally shot Private Thomas Moorehead of the 26th Indiana for crossing the "deadline." Moorehead, along with the other deceased prisoners was reinterred to the Pineville Cemetery in 1867 and is buried in grave A-808.
I would like very much to get a good quality digital image of his headstone. Any help would be appreciated.
