William Conrad Henslee/Hensley - Private   
This man is my Great, Great, Great, Great Grandfather...


William was born in Monroe County, Tennessee on October 15th, 1832. He lived for a while in District 85, Union County, Georgia. He later came to Rabun County, GA. Emily Perlana Gillespie was his first cousin, her father's mother, Judith Clarissa, William's father's sister (I think). They were married on May 12th, 1856. William became a farmer and lived peacefully with his wife. Emily bore William three children. James Hiram “Doc” was the first born in the month of April in 1857. “Doc” was my Great, Great, Great Grandfather. Next to be born was Caledonia MaryAnn on the 2nd of November in 1859. Born on the year William was mustered into service in the American Civil War, Ellen Leona breathed her very first breath on January 2nd, 1862.

William Conrad fought with Company G of the 25th North Carolina Infantry, either enlisting in Athens, GA or Clay or Macon County, NC. (Macon County is my guess because it was closest and he lived in Rabun County, GA.) Charles Frazier’s ancestor, W.P. Inman, also fought in the 25th of North Carolina. Inman was in Company F.

William was said to have received a flesh wound to his left thigh at Five Forks, Virginia on the 1st of April, 1865. He was taken prisoner by Yankees on April 3rd, two days before Lee surrendered at Appomattox Courthouse. He was said to have been transferred to a general hospital on April 27th, 1865. Later, it was said he was transferred to Point of Rocks Hospital on May 8th, 1865. He was, once again, said to be transferred to another general hospital on May 17th, 1865. Soon, it was said, William contracted Typhoid Fever and died at the age of thirty-one on July 24th, 1865 in Amherst, Virginia near Fort Monroe. He is buried in Hampton National Cemetery.
