Brice's Crossroads Confederate Cemetery

Who is in charge of, or a point of contact for, marking Confederate graves in Brice's Crossroads Confederate Cemetery? I notice a local Confederate soldier from here in Calloway County, Kentucky, that served in Company H, Third Kentucky Infantry, CSA, that is not listed on any of the burial lists I find.

Jesse H. Gardner of Company H, Third Kentucky Infantry, CSA, was mortally wounded on June 10, 1864, was retrieved after the battle and brought into the Brice home, and died in the Brice home on June 18, 1864. His body was interred in Bethany Cemetery with other soldiers. I know that part of the Bethany Cemetery is now known as the Briceís Crossroads Confederate Cemetery.

Gardnerís brother was also in the battle and wrote to Samuel A. Agnew, of Bethany, Lee County, Mississippi, in 1902. Agnew wrote a letter back telling him about the present condition of the cemetery and what had happened to Mrs. Brice and Mollie Turner.
