William Heath 1726-1782 could not have served as a Confederate soldier in the Civil War, although his descendants did.

Colonel William Heath served for the state of Virginia, in the War for Independence. See reference U.S. Revolutionary War Rolls, 1775-1783.

He did however marry the 'Indian Fighter' Colonel William Brice's granddaughter Elizabeth Brice. They were married about 1760 in Craven County.
