Please, I am a total novice where Civil War information is concerned. My great-great uncle Gideon Stump is shown in his military service record as dying aboard "the Hospital Boat H Von Phull". I since have seen a reference to the ship being a merchant ship disabled by Confederate shore battery 8 December 1863, when the USS Neosho came to its defense. My uncle died aboard the Henry Von Phul January 26, 1863, from wounds received in the battle of Arkansas Post (Fort Hindman). Does anyone have more information about this incident? I would like to discover where my uncle Gideon is buried, and I am hoping that learning more of the story will help me to discover his burial site. The National Archives in Washington DC did an extensive search of all available data bases and was unable to determine burial information for Gideon Stump. He was only 19 years old when he died, a farm boy from Missouri caught up in an enormous battle. Any information on this would be much appreciated.
