There is not much known about William.

However, the following is quoted from the research of William Earnest Craigo Jr.

“William (Bill) I have found out very little about him other than he served in the Union Army during

the Civil War. My dad told me that he always attended the GAR meetings in Charleston

And that he always drank too much.”

GAR stood for Grand Army of the Republic and was a veteran’s organization for Union Soldiers of the Civil War.
