|Death: ||Jul. 31, 1864|
William Green King was the son of Abram King (1790-c1870) and Lucy Bradford (1790-before 1845).
The Martha Reid Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy states that he enlisted in the Confederate States Army on October 2, 1863, in Newnan, Georgia. and was mustered as a private in Company F, Phillips Legion, Georgia Cavalry. He would have been about 39 years old at the time. MRUDC also states that the hospital record shows he died August 2, 1864, although muster rolls of his service record show the date of death as July 31, 1864.
The pension application filed by his widow, Julia, included an affidavit by three witnesses, W.W. Roop, J.K. Roop, and Henry Huffman, which states that, "He was taken sick with measles in April 1864 near Fredericksburg, Virginia, and sent to the hospital at Lynchburg, Virginia, and afterwards returned to the army and relapsed and was then sent to the hospital at Raleigh, North Carolina, where he died in July 1864. His death was officially reported to the captain of the company. W.W. Roop, one of the subscribing witnesses assisted in putting the said W.G. King into the ambulance where he was started to the hospital at Raleigh, North Carolina. Henry Huffman was waiting on said King at the time he was started off to the hospital." Another section attests that he died "about the last day of July 1864."
William was survived by his family in Carroll County, Georgia - wife Julia Ann Morgan King (1827-1903) and children Thomas A. (1849-1900), John Bartimus (1851-1944), Lucy A. "Lonie" (1856-1930), Sarah Penina (1857-1918), Elizabeth Theodocia "Docie" (1860-1927), and Mary P. "Mollie" (1862-1903). He was preceded in death by son Fleming (1848-1850).
Note: I want to sincerely thank the Martha Reid Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy for creating this memorial and many others like it. Because of their efforts, fallen soldiers like William Green King can finally be reunited with family.
