Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1824, England
Death: Dec. 23, 1883
La Plata
Charles County
Maryland, USA

Born in London in 1824, William married Elizabeth Elson and immigrated to the United States around 1850. In New York, William enlisted in the Civil War and served in the 5th N.Y. Heavy Artillery unit. On July 17, 1865, William was shot in the hand, while fighting at the Battle of Cool Springs (aka Snicker's Gap). After many months of recovering, he transferred to the 93rd VA Veterans Reserve Corp, where he served as a warden at Hicks U.S. General Hospital in Baltimore, MD. William moved his family to Port Tobacco in the late 1870's.

*Note: All of the Biles graves were unmarked at Mt. Rest. I do however, have newspaper obituaries and old church ledgers which show they are indeed buried here. William's stone was placed in his memory in Spring of 2009.
