Can anyone shed light on this news item from the Leighton News (Colbert County, AL) of 14 May 1909?

"This writer, his father, mother and two sisters, and I.W. and T.R. Mayfield made a visit to Natural Bridge Friday. We went for the purpose of cleaning off the grave of one of my uncles, (Lafayette Mayfield,) who was killed in the war. He was a United States soldier, and was killed by some scouts and buried in the woods. It is a desolate place where he is buried. We also went to the bridge and had a nice time on our trip,a trip that will long be remembered by this writer.

J.B. Weems"

Is the location of this grave known?
