Wordless Wednesday: Death at the 1864 Wilderness Battle

Richard MORROW, Jr
PA 139th Co. D
Wounded May 5, 1864 Battle of the Wilderness
Died May 6, 1864  Field Hospital
Beloved son of Richard MORROW and Mary MILLER
Age at death 19 years, 7 months, 9 days
Date of Muster September 1, 1862
Monument at Pine Creek Cemetery, Allegheny Co, PA

The 139th was positioned at the Brock Road and Plank Road area.  Which field hospital was closest? There was a field hospital on the nearby Carpenter Farm with 4 grave areas. Could his remains have been buried there?  

Ahh, genealogy. What a beautiful monument for the youngest son.  Gone way too young, but remembered so many years later. Rest in peace, young Richard.
