Stories about William E Robinson

Biographical Sketch

    Private William E. Robinson was born ca. 1827 in Florida.  In 1860 he, along with wife Quintine and two-year old son, were living near Quincy, Gadsden County, Florida.  The census lists his occupation as a laborer.

    He enlisted March 12, 1862 at Quincy, Gadsden County, Florida in Captain Davidson’s Company; William stated his age as 38.  He took ill after the company had arrived had departed the state.  He was left sick at Atlanta, Georgia in May, and subsequently detailed as a hospital nurse for a brief period.  He rejoined the company prior to August 13th, 1862; he (along with others from the company) was left sick at Barboursville, Kentucky when army departed that place for Lexington.  He was captured by Federal forces on September 4th, and paroled the same day.

    William made his way back to Knoxville; he apparently had not recovered his health, and went into the hospital at Knoxville, succumbing to his affliction on October 9th, 1862.

    He is interred at Bethel Confederate Cemetery, Knoxville, Knox County, Tennessee.
