Folk Figure. Allegedly born in Itawamba County, Mississippi, on November 14, 1842, he was claimed to be the last surviving veteran of the American Civil War, and had served in the Confederate Army during battle. Modern scholarship and research has attested that he was too young to have fought in the war. Son of George Washington Williams and Nancy Marcus. (bio by: K)
