William Lorillard - Private   
William was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia and served with the 2nd US Dragoons in the US-Mexican War. He married the widow of a comrade from that war (Huntress)and settled down in San Antonio where he worked as a gunsmith for the US Army Arsenal, then located at the Alamo. He lived in the 300 block of South Alamo and later moved to the 700 block. He enlisted as an infantry private with Co. K, 6th Texas Infantry and was taken prisoner when his unit was surrendered at the Battle of Arkansas Post. He was incarcerated at Camp Butler, Illinois after a tough winter voyage up the Mississippi River as a prisoner of the Yankees. In 1863 he and his unit were exchanged at City Point, Virginia and move south to the Army of Tennessee where he died of dysentery shortly before the Battle of Chicamauga. My family is in possession of the letter his widow received notifying her of his death in hospital at Dalton, Georgia. Members of my family, including my brother and I have visited his burial place in the Confederate Cemetery in Dalton. As a wounded, infantry combat veteran of the Vietnam War, I feel a close relationship with my ancestor, William Lorillard.
