Nick Wax cemetery in East Baton Rogue Parish has been reported as endangered
(c. 2000 see URL http://www.savinggraves-us.org/la/reports/nickwax.htm )


Strangely enough, there is a Nick Wax who is listed as deceased from Gratiot S Regiment Co. B in the following article from the internet archive. The cemetery, in East Baton Rouge Parish, was reported with the spelling Nick Wax whereas the USGS has no alternate spellings and spells the cemetery Nickwack.


Knowing nothing of this cemetery, or Civil War history, I'm posting the information to the list and blog in hopes that someone can shed some light on this cemetery or the soldier, Nick Wax of Gratiot S Regiment Co. B. The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors database lists the name, Nick Wax, 3rd Arkansas Infantry (likely The Hempstead Rifles?), but in Co. C from Film Number M376 roll 24..
