John, 31st VA Inf, son of Wm and Mehalia

Pvt. John W. Folks, son of William and Mehalia Folks, enlisted in the 31st VA Infantry, Co. F., at Huttonsville under Currence on May 24, 1861 (along with six other of my Hevener, Hogan and Wamsley relatives on the same date!). John was killed in action at the Wilderness battle of Spotsylvania County Courthouse on May 6, 1864. His brother, Pvt. Adam Folks, 31st VA., Co F., survived the war and took the oath at Staunton in 1865. I have a picture of Adam in the 1900 CSA gathering in Randolph Co. (from the 31st VA Inf. book by Ashcraft). They are my first cousins five times removed.

Does anyone know where John W. Folks was buried? Was he brought home and buried, or was he buried at the Confederate cemetery at Wilderness?
