Biography

William was born in June or July 1844,[1] possibly in Georgia, United States.[2]

William moved to Alabama, United States about 1851.[1]

William joined the Confederate army as a private in June 1861. He served in Company K of the 15th Alabama Infantry for four years, two of which were in prison at Fort Delown, from where he was released after the surrender.[1]

William married Elizabeth McElvane August 24, 1865 and they had at least five children[1] (see Notes).

In 1870, William (age 26) and Elizabeth (age 26) lived in Barbour, Alabama, United States with children Eva (shown as Lalia, age 4) and newborn Ida. Nora Brigham (age 12), Green Fowler (age 18), and Charles Thorn (age 12) also lived with the family.[3]

William filed claims on behalf of three previously deceased relatives, as the administrator. All were against the United States government for Indian depredations.

  • William posted a $340 bond March 28, 1892 in Barbour County, Alabama, United States to administer the March 26, 1892 claim of his cousin, William Hall Jr, worth $165.[5]
