William A.G. Dean
Enlisted Oct 4th 1862 at Warrensburg Tn and mustered in at Henderson's Depot on Nov 10 1862.
He was captured at the Big Black May 17 1863 and marched to Indianapolis and released on condition of enlistment in the 8th Tenn Cav. USA.
When he enlisted his profession was brickmason. His father died before he was 14.
In 1870 he married a rich widow in Whitesburg Tennessee and at about the same time purchased clay banks south of Whitesburg and began making brick. (likely purchased from his father-in-law). He replaced the log structure Bent Creek Baptist (2nd oldest in Tennessee) with a brick one in 1870. He built several homes, hotels, schools, and many of the store fronts that still stand in nearby Morristown, Tennessee, including the Rose Center named for his old commander in the 61st, James G. Rose. The second floor of Bent Creek Church served a Masonic Lodge.
He was Master of the Lodge during the 1870's. My grandfather born in 1875 recalled he and his brother having to get up every morning winter or summer to build a good fire before helping their father from bed in the 80's and 90's. He had been so severely frost bitten at Saltville, Virginia, that by this time his feet were drawn against his shins.
