Need information on W. W. Carnes
Posted by: Gail Copeland (ID *****4261) Date: July 17, 2008 at 10:39:17
  of 1686

Looking for information on W.W.Carnes. He was a Captain in the Sixteeth Regiment, TN Vol. I have some information from the book called The Campaigns & battles of the Sixteeth Reg., TN, Vol, Cumberland Pres. Pub House 1884 on him. This book tells about the battles he fought. It does not tell much about his family history. So I don't know who his parents were or his first name.

The book gave the following info. on him:

1. He was educated at the U.S. Naval Academy
2. He was a citizen of Memphis, TN before the war
3. In 1866 he was married at Macon, Georgia to a lady whom he formerly met at this place in 1863. In 1867 he settled in Macon.
4. It also has a picture of him if anyone is interested. Any info. would help. Thanks Gail
