Dear, Sir, thank you very much for the information you provided. I am not familiar with the book by Phil Secrist. Would you mind trying to learn the title if this book, so, I can purchase it?
I just recently learned from my 85 year old father that TP's brother and widow drove a wagon to the Resaca area in Georgia and tried to locate his grave after the War was over, but, were unsuccessful in finding it. My dad can not recall where he heard this information and I'll probably never be able to confirm it, however, I will continue my search and will take my vacation to this area in the Fall of this year and physically search the three grave sites you mentioned.
Thank you very much for sharing this information with me and if you can find out the name of the book you mentioned, I would appreciate it very much. Our family genealogical records only states TPP was a Captain and was killed during the war. Up until here recently, I've learned about the battle, the Confederate cemetery in Resaca and that he was a 1st Lt. in the Alabama regiment.
