...Edward Bredell and wife, St. Louis...-Daily Richmond Examiner, August 28, 1866
We know that, by 1867, the body of Edward Bredell, Jr., had been returned to St. Louis and buried on his family's property on Lafayette Avenue. There is a report that his parents went to Virginia and brought the body of their son home. The above report from the Daily Richmond Examiner shows that Edward Bredell, Sr., and his wife went to Virginia in 1866 and this, most likely, would have been when they retrieved the body of their son.
