Warren was my great grandfather's half brother. Warren died on December 19, 1864 according to family records. The Mecklenburg county Confederate soldier Roster compiled in the 1890's does not list him as killed or dead, however. Warren's brother John Calvin Brown was a corporal in the NC 5th Cavalry, and survived the war. I don't know where Warren is buried. I assume he is among the thousands of unknown confederate dead buried in Petersburg VA.
