32 year old Private Frederick Julius Watts of Company G, First Texas Infantry was seriously wounded in his right arm at Sharpsburg in September 1862 and captured. His arm was amputated and he was sent home to his farm in Anderson County, but he died there of tuberculosis not quite ten years after he lost his arm, at age 41, in April 1872.

The photograph of his gravesite was contributed to his Findagrave memorial by Deb Vondrasek.
