According to FindAGrave,Pvt. Wylie Matthew Pierce has/had a brother buried at Shiloh Cemetery who died in 1862 at age 23 or 24. Nothing there or at the cemetery that suggests he was a veteran. His age and death in 1862 makes me wonder.

According to FindAGrave,this soldier also buried at Old Shiloh Cemetery is Pvt. Pierce's half-brother. The gravestone is hard to read. He was in the 19th Texas Infantry.

Ever since you mentioned that cemetery I have been trying to place it in my mind, and am still drawing a blank. I grew up in Rusk County after all, it must be in the Southern part of the county.

It is on SH315 very near the Rusk/Panola County line. I think the nearest town before you get to it going southbound on 315 is Clayton. It's between Clayton and Mt. Enterprise on 315.

Never seen a gravestone like this. No information on him at FindAGrave. Couldn't find anything at the NPS Soldiers and Sailors Database or Ancestry either.

Bobby did my friend Ms Marla still have her Rebel Lilly?

I had forgotten about that and didn't think to ask her but I can make inquiries.

I'm betting that from the date McCormack was probably a veteran on Span.-Am. or WWI instead of the Civil War.
If he lived to be 80+ years old,he could've been a CW veteran. I'm guessing the flags are put there at that cemetery by a local SCV Camp or UDC Chapter. Must be a reason for it.

The gravestone of Harvey Wallace is 4-sided. On 2 sides are inscriptions for 2 of his children. The 4th inscription is for a Wife of a Revolutionary War Soldier. It's unclear to me what her relation to Harvey Wallace was. Accoring to her FindAGrave page,she outlived her Revolutionary War Soldier husband by 40+ years and he is buried in a family cemetery in South Carolina:

A brother of the soldier in post #55 above. Couldn't get a good pic of the gravestone because of the flowers. There's a better pic on the FindAGrave page:
