My great-grandfather, W. A. Henley served in Company H of the 31st Mississippi Infantry. I don’t have a lot of information on him, but he is buried at Sapa Cemetery in Webster County, MS. where he died in 1932. He was born in Choctaw County in 1843 to Alexander and Elizbeth Henley.
If you have any information on his time in the infantry, I’d love to see it. I’d love to see any information on Company H because I am trying to reconstruct as much of his life as I can.
Editor: Cathy, the first place to start is to order his Compiled Military Service Records, which can be done online.
