Capt J Stilwele
While researching records from Humble Cottage Masonic Lodge, I noticed an entry dated 11-9-1863 indicating that the brothers of the lodge held a burial service for a Capt J.S.A. Stilwele "who died of wounds on the battlefield of Bayou Bourbeau". This is the name as best as I can make it out as the record was written by hand in ink and this is a faded original document. A check of Booths records was unsuccessful. Would anyone have a list of casualties from the battle? I think he may have been a Texan as they were heavily engaged in that fight. He was not a member of the lodge in Opelousas as I cross-checked the membership roster from 1863 back several years. Thanks in advance.
