I'm seeking information on the burial place of George A. Ellsworth for possible inclusion in the second volume of _Burial Sites of Texas Civil War Notables_. Ellsworth, a Canadian living in Texas at the out break of the War was John Hunt Morgan's telegrapher on Morgan's raids. His obituary in CONFEDERATE VETERAN dated January 1900 (Volume III, No. 1, pages 35-36), "He died recently with his fingers on the key, at his post in Antonio, Louisiana." It did not mention where he was buried.

Any information on his burial site would be appreciated.

John, Did you ever find out any more about the burial site of George Ellsworth, John Hunt Morgan's "Lightning"? I was astonished to discover he had a wife and daughter. We have some letters in our family archives from him dated June 1899. He had just returned from the Spanish American War in Cuba where he drove a 2 mule Red Cross wagon. He carefully says he did not "don the Blue". Never mentioned LA or family. This is just 18 months before he died. He was a traveling book salesman.
Thanks Patricia

I am curious whether someone knows where in Canada George Ellsworth was born.
