Death: 1864
Alabama, USA

William Elias (Wilbern)Windham born 3-6-1840 in Pike Co.Alabama, died sometime about 1864. He was married to Amanda J. Goldin(Windham)(Frontroy) b. 12-5-1841 Macon, Bibb, GA. d. 10-31-1931 Ft. Worth, Tarrant Co., TX. They married January 3, 1858 in Montgomery Co.AL.
He was enlisted in Greenville, Al in 1861 in Civil States War as private and promoted to Color Corporal April 12, 1864. He was wounded at "Battle of Atlanta" and sent home where he later died about 1864.
On the 1860 Greenville, Al census listed as a mechanic. Amanda J. Goldin or Manda was the daughter of James Goldin b.1821 SC d.6-6-1863 Memphis TN (Civil War)and Nancy Draughon/Drawhorn(Goldin)(Taylor)b.6-28-1823 Macon Bibb Co. GA.,d.11-6-1876 Tyler, TX.Sometimes Amanda's name is spelled Manda,Emanda,Immanda, and on June 1870 New Orleans,Louisiana census she goes by Lizzie.
Wilbern the son of Erasmus W. Windham b.10-13-1818 Darlington, SC, d.10-17-1900 Nouvoo, Walker Co.,AL and Mary Ann Moseley, b. 10-27-1820 SC, d.1-12-1915-Walker, AL. Wilbern and Amanda's only son Benjamin Eli Windom was born 5-6-1861 in Alabama, maybe Butler, Greenville, or Walker Co. d. 5-13-1930 Ft.Worth, TX. After 1864 I have no information about Wilbern.
Amanda Goldin (Windham) married Albert Frontroy after this.I find her next in Louisiana and she has 1 child ,Benjamin Eli. Amanda was in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1875 and by 1880 probably in Texas. Albert Castyler is born to Amanda 1-16-1875 New Orleans, LA d.5-3-1946.
By 1910 (sp.Emanda) lived in San Saba, Cherokee, TX where I have found land being sold (Llano Co. to San Saba Co.,TX,)between Albert C. Frontroy Jr. (wife Phebe or Phobe) and Benjamin Eli Windom 1907 and 1908). Amanda or Emanda Frontroy living with son, Albert C. Frontroy. This is the generation where the name "Windham" changes to "Windom" or changes with Benjamin Eli Windom married to Catherine Christillia Woodward.
