William Jennings was enlisted by J. N. Slaughter on 3 March 1862 as a private in the infantry (Company B of the 34th Alabama Infantry) during the War between the States. He was paid $11 per month. Family stories claim he was at the battle of Stones River (Murfreesboro, TN). Confederate service records at the National Archives describe him: "aged 36 years, 5-feet 5-inches high, dark complexion, blue eyes, auburn hair."
He died at Fayetteville, AL on 6 June 1863 of chronic diarrhea [cholera? dysentery?]. His wife Sarah F. (Swanson) Jennings received a widow's pension until 1904.

He was the son of Allen Jennings and Cynthia Varner.
