Young Marshall Moody, Brigadier General, is buried in a large wall tomb on Myrtle Avenue of Greenwood Cemetery in New Orleans.

He was born in Virginia in 1822, son of Carter Moody, a man of wealth.  By age 20 he was living in Alabama, teaching school and becoming a merchant.  He became clerk of the circuit court in Alabama in Marengo County.

When secession occurred, he joined the army and was elected captain of the 11th Alabama Infantry.  He later assisted Archibald Gracie to raise the 43rd Alabama Infantry under which he was elected lieutenant colonel and Gracie was elected colonel.

By the Battle of Chickamauga, he was colonel of the regiment and Gracie was now brigadier general.

He suffered an ankle wound at Drewry's Bluff.  After Gracie's death in December 1864, he took charge of the brigade.  He was commissioned brigadier general on March 4, 1865.

Moody was captured the day before the surrender at Appomattox.

After the war he was in business in Mobile, Alabama and while on a business trip to New Orleans died from yellow fever on September 18, 1866 at the age of 44.
