I've got something for you. Not his gravesite I'm afraid, but I managed to find the Pa Veteran card file and according to it he died in Ambulance Hospital on May 9th. http://www.digitalarchives.state.pa.us/archive.asp?view=ArchiveItems&ArchiveID=17&FL=T&FID=1448671&LID=1448720

I'm not sure why the card says May 9th and the link I found earlier says May 8th. But it does appear to be supported by this muster pages:

Had to print them out and place them side by side to read them properly.

 I'm wondering if Ambulance Hospital doesn't mean he died in the ambulance while being taken to the hospital. Even so, where would he have then been buried. Or was the body lost.
