William M Nunley
Birth: Feb. 22, 1833
Tennessee, USA
Death: Oct. 29, 1909
Tishomingo County
Mississippi, USA

WILLIAM M. NUNLEY, born in Tennessee, 22 Feb 1833. In the 1850 census he would have been around 17. So far I have not been able to find him. I have also not been able to find his father. The earliest record I have for him is when he married Amanda Jane Carpenter on 22 Dec 1852 in Tishomingo Co. MS. They were married 42 years before she died in 1894. Her parents were James Carpenter and Mahala Mays Carpenter.

William was in the 11th Alabama Calvary, Co. K in the Confederate Army during the Civil War. He was captured at a battle in Decatur, Al. and sent to Camp Chase, Ohio. He was there from December until the end of the war. He then took the oath of allegiance and became a good citizen in time of peace. William M. Nunley died of kidney failure, 30 Oct 1909 in Tishomingo Co. Ms in Iuka. He and his wife and more of their family are buried in the Carpenter/Nunley Cemetery.

William Nunley was very tall, 6 feet & 7 inches.
