William Crawford Gorgas's parents were Josiah Gorgas (1818-1883) and Amelia Gayle (1826-1911). Josiah was the Chief of Confederate Ordnance, Amelia was the daughter of Alabama governor John Gayle. There are two important books on this matter: "Amelia Gayle Gorgas, A Biography" by Mary Tabb Johnston with Elizabeth Johnston Lipscomb, and "The Journals of Josiah Gorgas 1857-1878" edited by Sarah Woolfolk Wiggins. The former has a family tree in it.
William Crawford Gorgas was apparently named after his uncle-in-law, William B. Crawford, the husband of Amelia's sister Sara Ann Gayle.
I would very much like to know more about the brothers of Josiah Gorgas--their names and their spouse's names, with birth/death dates/places. I am trying to figure out if there is a connection between them and my second great grandfather, Ferris Gorgas, who was supposedly born in Illinois and died ca 1897 (unknown location), who married a Mary Crowley (born in Ireland, died also ca 1897). Quite a few of my Gorgas's lived in Pennsylvania, such as Beaver County, but Ferris and Mary were supposed to have died young and left a few children in an orphanage by 1900.
