Civil War (Confederate) · Confederate Army

William fought in the Civil War along with his brother. William is my brick wall; I know who his mother and siblings were. William and all his siblings were born in Clay County Kentucky. There are many documents relating to Clay Co KY. However because I dont know his fathers name I cant find them on the early Clay co census records. William is my 3rd great grandfather
