Name: William Tenneyson DunfordRank: Private Company: I
William Tennyson Dunford (b May 26, 1819 Cumberland, County, Va., d April 18, 1865 in Richmond, Va.)

William worked as a carpenter, miller and a farmer, and was the son of Philip Tennyson Dunford. When he was approximately 42 years old, the War for Southern Independence was on, and even though his age allowed him an age exemption to military service, duty called, and in Richmond he enlisted on March 27, 1862, as a Pvt. in company I, 2nd. Regiment, Virginia Artillery. In May 1862, companies A, B,C,D,E,H were reorganized and assigned and formed the 22nd. Virginia Battalion of Infantry, Confederate States Army. Company I and K were disbanded, and those men who re-enlisted were assigned into other companies, principally Co. A and G of the Battalion of Infantry.

On February 27, 1865, Special Order #48 called for the formation of a Reserve Infantry Regiment to serve as a home guard, and Col. Richard A. Booker of Cumberland was made commander.
Once again in spite of his age, William T. Dunford joined Co. E, 3rd.Virginia Reserve Infantry Regiment as a Corporal and was a member until the war ended ten days later on April 9, 1865.

Records indicate many men became sick with various diseases, Cholera, Typhoid fever, measles, ect, many soldiers were sent home, but William Tenneyson Dunford apparently contracted a desease and later died on April 18, just 9 days after the wars end.
