William was born in 1848. William King ... [1]

According to records kept by the National Park Service's Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System, there are several William Kings from Tennesse who served in the Confederate Army. A William King is listed in Company C of the 18th Regiment, Tennessee Cavalry (Newsom's) which recruited from McNairy County. Unable to confirm at this time as to whether he is the same individual in my Wikitree record. There are several William Kings from Tennessee who served with the Union, but no indication as to recruited counties.

His brother Jackson, my GG Grandfather fought on the Union side in the 6th Tennessee organized by a man named Hurst, who has a notorious reputation. There was also a brother James, who fought on the Union side. I live not far from McNairy County, TN, which is where the Kings settled in the early 1830s.
