William Averhart Fetner was born 28 Nov 1834 in Muscogee County, Georgia, USA. His parents were James Fetner and Elizabeth Lee

William was a soldier in the Confederate States Army, Co G, 46 Alabama Infantry. He enlisted May 3, 1862. Captured at Bakers Creek May 16, 1863 (Battle of Champion Hill near Vicksburg).
