William Raleigh Thomas - 1st Corporal   
William has four cards in his archival file. He was from Jefferson Co. Alabama and was 34 years old. He enlisted in Capt. Miller's Company,Frazer's Regiment, Alabama Vol's. Enlisted by Lt. Col. J.C. Reid for three years or the war. William was dead a few months later. His wife Cincinnati Smith filed for settlement on 2 Oct. 1862. A search of his regimental history might shed some light on his death. Deo Vindice The light does shine!!! A review of Williams Company Record of Events reveals that his company arrived at Corinth Miss. on 23rd of April 1862 and was encamped 1/2 mile from town. They were there when the Union siege began in May. It is 99% sure that he died in that Siege.

William M Foster - Private   
William M Foster was my Gr Gr Grandfather. He enlisted in Co K at Perryville Perry Co AL Mar 29, 1862. He was born in Bibb Co AL his parents Thomas Sr & Ginsey [Fowler] Foster, moved to Coosa Co. By 1860 Wm was in Perry with his family, his brother's and many cousins in Coosa Co AL. It may be that Williams M Foster served with family members in another unit from Coosa, then joined up with the Co K, in Perry Co in 1862, Wm Foster is the only Wm Foster in Perry Co on the 1860 census, he joined with his next door neighbor, T. B. Gay. On the same day and Company. Wm was injured in the hip in 1863, from the timeline I gather it was at Murfreesboro TN. It was listed as a slight injury, I do not know if it disabled him... Wm's wife had passed down, via family lore, that Wm was shot on his porch, in 1865, in Perry Co, by a passing Union soldier, after a heated verbal battle. Wm's brothers, Thomas Jr, James, Richard were all killed in the Civil War, in addition to 3 of his 4 sisters, husbands, one married twice during the war, and she lost both husbands, so, I can believe 'a heated exchange of words... '. Some family members have stated he was killed at Centerville, when a group of 3,000 veterans were enroute to Mobile to help in fighting off the Union invasion there... I have speculated that Wm returned home, after the 28th service at Nashville, when the unit was badly destroyed, as some joined other units and surrendered at Durham Station NC, at the end of the war...
