Horace Clinton Branham was born to William H. and America (HAYS) Branham. He served in the civil war as a member of the CSA. He was brother to Cyrus Wayne, James Franklin, Malissa, and Correna.

The 2nd (Woodward's) Cavalry Regiment was organized in December, 1862. The unit served in Brigades attached to the Army of Tennessee. It was involved in many conflicts in Tennessee, Alabama, and Kentucky, then took an active part in the Atlanta Campaign. The regiment went on to aid in the defense of Savannah and the campaign of the Carolinas. On April 26, 1865, it surrendered. Its commanders were Colonel Thomas G. Woodward and Major Thomas W. Lewis.

Following the war, Horace eventually moved to Louisville, where he died of natural causes and was buried in an unmarked grave at the Louisville Cave Hill Cemetery.
