: : : I have recently looked thru a book of Civil War veterans buried in Arkansas. William E. Shirley was listed. It showed that he was born 12/30/1843 and that he died 11/2/1929. His unit was shown as Co. D Alabama Infantry but it did not show the number of the Alabama Infantry. He is buried in Oakland Memorial Cemetery in Johnson County, Arkansas. Does anyone have any information regarding his parents, his descendants, etc.? I would appreciate any help.
: : Mr Shirely was in the 60th Alabama Infantry. He moved to Ark in 1881 from Opelika , Alabama..William E Shirely was married to Emma Elizabeth White...Their children were: Mina Mildred : Olla : William Edwin : Edward : Jesse ; and Winfred.
: : Mr Shirely had a very extensive military record with the C.S.A.
: : Mr Shirely was the owner of a mill on Horsehead Creek. It was a few miles west of Clarksville.
: Do you know who his parents were, where he was born, etc.? I am trying to see if he is connected to my Shirley ancestors in Alabama.

Unfortunately I have been unable to find that information. I do know that he enlisted in the Confederate Army out of school in Columbus, Ga.
