Denars Ceits

Who is this man? Should his last name be Geits, a more common name?

Did he fight with the CSA against the Union, in an Indian regiment such as Deneale's Regiment?

Was he on the USS Choctaw, a large ironside that was at battles at Haynes Bluff and Yazoo City, Mississippi, both near Vicksburg? That boat, however, was not in action in Jun of 1862, though he could have been attached to it. That would make him Union, and the question arises, why does he have a Confederate marker?

Is Choctaw actually his last name? (A Noah "Chaektow" or Chacktow was in the 28 La. Inf (Thomas').

Ragland's Fisher Funeral Home Records, pg. 115, has a "Benars Cits, 10 Jun 1862; Choctaw; Grave 60" (grave number that was assigned in Cedar Hill cemetery).

The following is from Booth's listing at
http://www.lascv.com/b13.html

Cettig, Beniva, Pvt., Co. F. 28th (Thomas') Regt. La. Infty. En. April 23rd, 1862, New Orleans, La. Roll to Aug. 31st, 1862, Died at Hospl. at Vicksburg, June 11th, 1862.

Still researching this man. Help is welcome.
