Historical Notes :
furnished by Mike Jines

I didn't find where Fielding G. Alexander is buried;
however, I do have some additional information
which might be helpful.
 
“Camp Tyler” was actually Camp Ford, outside of Tyler, Texas.
It was the largest Confederate P.O.W. camp west of the
Mississippi River. The soldiers who died there were reburied
in Alexandria National Cemetery in Pineville, Louisiana,
after the Civil War. Those records are on-line, but I didn't find
Fielding Alexander. (I also tried Alexander Fielding.)
It's possible there was a mix-up and he was overlooked.
It's also possible that his family had his body disinterred
and reburied up North. The search continues.
