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 would be appreciated.
