"Marble Flintstone" - Could There Be A More Perfect Tombstone Name?

While walking through the Vicksburg National Military Cemetery I came across this tombstone. Could there really have been a solider called Marble Flintstone or is is an old Civil War hoax?

 

After doing a little searching I did find that there was indeed a Marble Flintstone who died on 18 May 1863 (Battle of Champion Hill?) while a part of the 96th Ohio Volunteers.
