Sgt William Scott "W. S." Allison, Jr
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1836
Cabarrus County
North Carolina, USA
Death: May, 1864
Dallas
Paulding County
Georgia, USA

The year of birth is estimated based on census records.

William served in Company A of the 40th Alabama Regiment (the South Sumter Guards) from 17 March 1862 until his death circa May 1864. Alan Pitts of the Alabama Civil War Message Board provides the following relevant facts: "Capt. Samuel H. Sprott of Company A writes, 'After resting for a short time I proceeded down the line to report to Col. Highley for orders, and when I returned about dark, I was informed that Sergeant William S. Allison who had been by my side all day, had been killed by a minnie ball in the head....'" He also mentions that Allison was among those slightly wounded when Stone's Batalion fought alongside Ector's Texans at Chickamauga, Ga., Sept. 19, 1863." Based on this and other entries from Capt. Sprott's journal, William is believed to be buried in the New Hope Cemetery, Paulding County, Georgia, possibly in an unmarked grave.

There is a monument in the Court House Square of Livingston, Alabama, that was erected by the Sumter Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy circa 1907 to honor the Confederate solders that served from Sumter County, as well as those who later settled in the county. William's name is among the names inscribed on the monument. (The above links will open in a new window.)
