Porterfield living with Tabor family 1860 Census

Hello, I am trying to learn about a man named William Porterfield. He appears in the 1860 Madison County Georgia census living with the family of a Atherson? Tabor. William Porterfield is aged 18 in the census. I have been unable to locate him before or after this date. I believe he might be Private William J. Porterfield who enlisted in Company B, 9th Battalion Georgia Infantry which contained men from Madison and Clarke Counties. William J. Porterfield survived the war, he was captured in December 1864 at Murfressboro Tennessee and ended up at Camp Chase where he remained for the rest of the war and was eventually released. I am trying to figure out who this William J. Porterfield is, who are his parents, and what happened to him. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
