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
