43rd North Carolina Infantry - Co. K   
William was born 25 Aug 1840 in the Burnsville Township, Anson Co. NC. he enlisted in Co K 43rd Regiment NC Infantry on 15 May 1862 another source gives date of 25 Feb 1862.

His family history states he suffered a gun shot wound to the chest. No date of injury and the numerous battles at the time gives no clue as to the action he was wounded in. He was involved in many major battles including Gettysburg. The 43rd was assigned at different times to General Junius Daniels, Robert F Hoke, & Bryan Grime's Brigade. He was the Father in Law of my 4th cousin 3 x removed Sophronia Ellen Beachum. They are buried in Hopewell Methodist Ch. Peachland, Anson Co. NC
