Sweetwater Enterprise, (Monroe Co. TN) July 14, 1870:

"In A Small Grave---About a mile northwest of town is the grave of a Confederate soldier. On the head-board is inscribed, B.O. Yearwood, Co. B. 3d Ga. Bat. S.S. Mr. Yearwood is supposed to have been killed in a cavalry skirmish which took place near Sweetwater in 1865. As he may have friends or relatives in Georgia who are ignorant of his place of burial, our Georgia exchanges are requested to copy this notice. The editor of this paper will give the friends of Mr. Yearwood any further information he can avail himself of which they may desire to obtain."
