Jos. J. Prendergast (1839-1861)
Prendergast, who was born in Savannah , Georgia, fought with the South Carolina Volunteers. There is confusion between the accuracy of his epitaph and historical documents.
A historian has written that he died at the Battle of Dranesville which occurred in December 1861. His epitaph says he died on October 4, 1861 "from wounds rec'd in action."
