Trying to verify and find additional info - where and when he died, etc-on a Civil War soldier of the Pa Bucktails- James Harvey Elder

James HARVEY Elder was born about 1834 in Pennsylvania. At time of his enlistment he was residing in Brockwayville, Fox Township, Elk County and working as a lumberman. He mustered in as a private on July 27, 1861, at New Creek (West) Virginia. He was discharged on account of wounds received at South Mountain and at Antietam on December 13, 1862. Harvey Elder had a pension request in 1863 based on his invalid status, and his wife Sophia filed as a widow on May, 1906.
