I was going to say to try Find A Grave, but the only Troy listed as dieing at the Battle of the Wilderness on May 6th was a Thomas Settle Troy, 1st Lt. in Co. G 46th NC. Siblings don't fit, two sisters (Mary and Nancy) and a brother (James Alpheus). Anything else you can tell us? Like unit, where he's from?

 

Edit: Hey, this might be of some interest: http://files.usgwarchives.net/pa/schuylkill/military/civilwar/pensions/t600002.txt. May not be the same man you're after, but the Wilderness was where Jackson recieved what would prove a fatal wounding a year earlier during the Battle of Chancellorsville. And this says that a Private Phillip Troy was discharged on the grounds of Death-mortally wounded at Chancellorsville.
