William Riley Takewell - Unknown   
William Riley Takewell was a U.S. confederate soldier in the 31st La. Infantry, under the command of Sugan Jones. He served as a Pvt. in Co. K, of the 31st Louisiana Inf. En. He is listed on the roll of Camp Mayson taken on 8/1/1862. He reported in camp for exchange at Vienna, La. before April 1, 1865. Resident of Ouachita Parish, La. He was paroled at Plesant Hill, and applied for his military pension on July 30 1913, at age 66. (Application # 7819.) He received 36 dollars for his pension. William was a member of the 'Company K, Tilailleurs of St. James
The regiment was organized at Camp Moore on May 15, 1862, with 804 men. The unit had originally been mustered into state service in New Orleans on December 17, 1861, as the Sumpter Regiment and was transferred to Confederate service for ninety days on March 1, 1862. Upon the evacuation of New Orleans, April 25, three and a half companies remained in the city were captured. The other six and a half companies went to Camp Moore. There General Mansfield Lovell added four new companies to bring the unit back to regimental strength. Company K went home on furlough and never returned, since the enemy controlled that portion of the state. The regiment remained at Camp Moore until August 5, when it participated in the battle of Baton Rouge. In that battle, 58 men of the regiment were killed, wounded, or missing. The remaining men marched to Port Hudson after the battle and became part of the garrison there. They did outpost and picket and helped construct the entrenchments in the area. In February, 1863, the War Department ordered the reduction of the regiment to a battalion of seven companies. On March 4, Companies H and I were disbanded and the men were distributed among other companies. The new 30th Louisiana Battalion retained the regiment's number, and records frequently call it 30th Louisiana Regiment.
