Looking for any information anyone has on a William C Thomas who served in the confederate Georgia 11th Infantry. He came in as a Private and was a Sergeant as he died. I found this site talking about him:http://www.murraycountymuseum.com/mf102.html
Though they clearly mix him up, William C Thomas apparent died in Virginia, they mention finding court records about that, however the William Thomas father of David in the census records mentioned is alive in the 1870 and 1880 census records.
I have an ancestor on his marriage record in Gilmer County Georgia he is named "William C Thomas" and married Amanda Langston, he was born around 1837 and a family story is he died during the Civil War. I have yet to confirm a record for him (a lot of Williams). The William C Thomas mentioned was in Company C which was recruited from Murray County Georgia. My William C was living in Gilmer County Georgia in 1860 which is bordering Murray and his father and mother were living in Murray County in 1860 so I think it's possible it's him.
The site specifically mentioned records from Murray County Courthouse that explain he died in Virginia, would love to know if anyone has a source for that information?
