Yes, I am sure. The William L. Utley on p. 101 of Joan Brink’s Utley book is a combination of the William H. in MY Utley line (son of Alexander Sanders Utley) and the William Leonidas son of Paris listed on p. 133. My William H. Utley was b. 19 FEB 1839 (from Bible record) in Humboldt, Gibson Co., TN. He died 2 DEC 1862 from wounds received at the Battle of Shiloh in April, 1862. My brother has his service record and he was discharged in June of 1862 at Tupelo, MS – a medical discharge. My William H. never married and never had any children. He is “buried at Shiloh” according to the family Bible. There is a Shiloh cemetery in Gibson Co. and this could be where he is buried; at this time I do not know. He is not buried at the Shiloh National Military Park as he died long after the battle.

Census records support the list of children as belonging to William L. (also called Leon when he was in his father’s household in 1860), for those who could be found in 1870, 1880 and 1900, so I am assuming that the combined list in the Utley book on pages 101 and 133 are correct for William Leonidas Utley, son of Paris Utley. The Mattie O. mentioned on p. 133 is the same as the Martha O. on p. 101. The information for Martha O. on p. 101 came from the 1880 census record as it only gives her year of birth, not a marriage date. The marriages on p. 133 all have marriage dates so they came from marriage records.
