Talton / Tarlton Watson-- 49th Tenn Infantry

I am looking for any records concerning my great-great-great-great grandfather Tarlton (or Talton) Watson, who was in Company K of the 49th Tennessee Infantry. He died October 14, 1862, and apparently his regiment was detained in Holly Springs, MS during that time, on the road from Clinton to Corinth. They had just been moved from Camp Douglas in Chicago.

From his regiment history:

"The regiment was released on parole at Vicksburg, September 26, 1862, and declared exchanged November 10, 1862. The regiment went into the Camp for Exchanged Prisoners at Clinton, Mississippi, where it was reorganized. On October 9, the regiment started for Corinth, but got only as far as Holly Springs, Mississippi, where it remained for about two weeks."

He is not buried with his family in Tennessee, so I am guessing he was buried where he died.

Any help would be appreciated. THANKS!
