Thayer's Note:

a1 a2 Find-a‑Grave lists two burial places for Lt. Trask, both in Memphis: apparently his initial gravesite, in a cemetery now defunct (Winchester Cemetery); and a grave in a current cemetery (Memphis National Cemetery). Both Find-a‑Grave pages give the date of his death as July 29.
