My ggg grandfather William M. Coulter was the son of Peter and Matilda Sealock Coulter. He was the husband of the former Julia Gordon, who survived, along with his children William J., Charles, Milton and Julia Coulter, Lucinda Phillips and Annie Deener, and ten grandchildren.
During the Civil War, William was a private in the 49th Virginia Inf. Co. D. He had enlisted at Front Royal, VA on June 17, 1861. On Dec. 13, 1862, he was wounded in the thigh at the Battle of Fredericksburg. He was reported as missing, but had been taken prisoner. He spent the next few months being treated for his wounds and then being held at Old Capitol Prison in Washington DC. After his release, he'd apparently had enough, and deserted. Interestingly, his name also appears in a book of Maryland Confederates, where he is listed as a private in "Jacobs Mounted Riflemen", but so far I've been unable to obtain any more info.
During the Civil War, William's parents and almost all of his siblings fled to Ohio, settling in Franklin County. William opted instead to go to Maryland, where he spent the rest of his life.
William was a farmer and a member of the Brownsville Church of the Brethren. He passed away from heart trouble.
