William McGlamery

(c. 1841 - 1862)

Home State: North Carolina

Branch of Service: Infantry

Unit: 48th North Carolina Infantry

Before Sharpsburg

In 1860 he was a 19 year old farmer on his parent's place in Cleveland County, NC. He was conscripted and enlisted there as a Private in Company I, 48th North Carolina Infantry on 16 August 1862.

On the Campaign

He was slightly wounded in the hand in action at Sharpsburg on 17 September 1862 and afterwards listed as missing.

The rest of the War

He was admitted to Chimborazo Hospital #4 in Richmond, VA on 26 September with "contused wound of finger" and sent to Chimborazo Hospital #2 (or #5) on 22 October 1862 with "continuous fever." He was transferred again, to the 2nd North Carolina Hospital at Petersburg, VA on 14 November and died there of febris thyphoides on 20 December 1862. One record states he died of wounds, but that is less likely.

His father "I. [Isaac] McGlamry" filed a claim for his final pay in March 1863.
