Where is James Dunwoody Bulloch Junior?

Harriet Cross Bulloch, James Dunwoody Bulloch`s 2nd wife, gave birth to the couples first child in 1858. He was named James Dunwoody Bulloch Junior, and died in 1888 at the age of 30 years, in Lynchburg, Virginia. I am aware of two burial sites, separated by 5,000 miles and the Atlantic Ocean, that both seem to claim him as a resident. The reader will find photographs and the relevant inscriptions below.

My grateful thanks go out to James Allen of Lynchburg,VA., for taking the time and trouble to provide me with the photos of the Lynchburg grave.

Footnote. The official list of Confederate Naval Officers, as supplied by the United States, lists James Dunwoody Bulloch Jr. as having served on the Alabama 1862-1864, what a smart child this 4 year old must have been

The burial record in Virginia would seem to confirm that the body is there.
So why is he listed on his parents grave?
