Stories about William Herrington

Biographical Sketch

    Private William Herrington was born ca. 1824 at Alexander, North Carolina[1].

    He married Rebecca Sikes prior to 1860 at Apalachicola, Gadsden County, Florida.

    He enlisted in Davidson’s Company on March 3rd, 1862 at Quincy, Gadsden County, Florida.  He was left sick in Florida when the company left the state, and caught up with it after June 30th, 1862.  He was left sick in a hospital at Lexington, Kentucky on October 11th, 1862.

    There is no further record of military service; however, Private William J. Ferrall attested in 1899 that he was with Private Herrington when he was mortally wounded in action at Missionary Ridge on November 25th, 1863.

    Rebecca applied for and, based on Ferrall’s statement[2], was awarded a Florida Confederate Pension for her husband’s service.  His place of interment is unknown.
