He served in the 1st Miss Reserves Co. C. during the War Between the states, enlisting in May 1864 for 12 months. He was a member of the State Legislature, a Justice of the Peace in Winston County, and a member of the Board of Supervisors of Winston County. In 1872 he was President of the Board of Supervisors.
Some people knew him as Alphabet King others knew him as the Tall Sycamore of Winston County. He was a tall man and when he was buried the family was not able to put a head stone on his grave or that of his wife Mary E. Boswell-King. Their Great Grandaughter Frances E. King-Woodruff with the help of the UDC ladies in Macon was able to get a stone for him that would list his CSA service.
His great grandaughter had an idea as to where he was buried but was not sure. She had Mr. Emory Morgan come to "witch" the grave for her and he confirmed for her that he was buried there and that his wife was beside him. Mr. Emory also found 45 unmarked Confederate Graves in this Cemetery.
