As part of the "Prophet" quest:

you are asked to visit Dragon Bridge to ask about a Moth Priest. Several of the NPCs have conversation options where they advise you to "speak to one of the guards".

There are 2 or 3 guards in Dragon Bridge (Stormcloak soldiers in my case) - but one is dead, having died in a battle with members of the Dawnguard. If I walk past this dead guard, away from the town - the "target" marker appears on my display at the top - indicating that the goal is visible - if I move back towards Dragon Bridge and the dead guard, it disappears.

I think the dead guard is the only one able to tell me the info.

Any way I can recycle this? Will the guard get refreshed after a period of time? I can't continue with the quest as no other NPC in the entire place has any info

You need to go just outside Dragon Bridge (Over the actual bridge with the dragon's head on). You will find a dead vampire next to an overturned carriage. Take his note and read.
