Edward S. Arms – Private, Confederate States of America Army

I'm not sure how to list this one.  There seems to be conflicting info as to what his name was.  There have been a good number of errors on the Confederate tombstones and the VA Nationwide grave locator.  So I have no idea who is right.

ARMES, J T (?)
