|23rd Arkansas Infantry (CSA) |
|Name: Hansford Williams||Rank: Private ||Company: |
Hansford Williams William Andrew Thomasson both enlisted the same place/day, and served until well after Appomatox, yet Williams' service in Co H. of the 23rd shows him Present only through 30 Apr 1863.
Williams was killed a good while after Appomatox, and after Mobile surrendered.
With what [irregular?] unit might he have served?
Thomasson's service record shows him Wounded and missing after the battle at Corinth, MS 5 0ct 1862. Clearly Thomasson returned to duty, for he was Captured 9 Ju1 1863 and paroled l0 Ju1 1863 at Port Hudson, LA. Why was he captured, then paroled the next day?
Thomasson, like Williams, served until well after Appomatox.
Thomasson was present when Williams was shot in the head; then Thomasson reported Williams' death to Williams' widow, son and daughter in Clark Co. AR.
Q: With what [irregular?] unit might Thomasson have served?
