• "Grayson County Births, 1853-70" (http://www.ls.net/~newriver/va/graybirth1853-70.htm), found on the New River Notes website, lists a David H. Bedwell as being born on 1 June 1860 to Isaac and Lucy J. Bedwell. However, the 1860 census, taken 2 Aug 1860, does not show David Bedwell in Isaac and Lucy's household, nor is he shown in the 1870 or 1880 census listings for that family. Therefore, he may have died less than a month after birth.

"Chestnut Hill Cemetery" page, also found on New River Notes website (http://www.ls.net/~newriver/graysoncem/chestnuthillcem.htm), lists David Bedwell as being buried there, but doesn't give a date of death. It simply says: "BEDWELL, David W. 1 Jun 1860 - died young."
