: 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.
