Notes:
  • This William Durham may not have been a "William Lindsey Durham". The 1850 Census shows him as "W. S." Durham. The 1870 Census shows him as "W. E." Durham (the scans for both clearly show "S" in 1850 and "E" in 1870). I feel it is the same person because both are married to Mary born in Alabama, plus the children match. 

  • William was a Private in Company E, 5th Mississippi Infantry and was captured in 1863 at the Battle of Vicksburg. He left Clay (Chickasaw) County, MS and moved to Tyler County, Texas in 1878. His wife, Mary died during the trip.

  • William is buried in Bethany Cemetery, Colmesneil, TyleTX. See William's Find-A-Grave 32964855 Entry.
