    A story poste by Samuel Donlan on his genealogy explains that Non diedin a Confederate HOspital in Lynchburg.  He had earlier been ill andwas treated in "the Confederate Hospital at Huguenot Springs, Virginiain August of 1862.  He may have had other bouts of illness earlierthat summer, as he had already been admitted to the ChimborazoHospital in Richmond for a severe case of diarrhea earlier that June."

    Samuel says, "He was returned to duty on June 11th, but was once againadmitted to Chimborazo on August 10, 1862 with a case of Rheumatism.Anonamous Ledbetter died in a Confederate Hospital."

    His memorial on Find a Grave report his death of death as 3 days afterthe "muster out" date reported in his Civil War military record.  (Nophoto of the grave is provided.)  It does not seem to make sense thathe was "mustered out," then happened to died 3 days later in the sameplace.
