William Staines - Private   
William Staines was born in England around 1822. Little is known about his early life, who his parents were or exactly when and where he was born. He left the U.K. for America, landing in New York. He would eventually leave New York for his health and immigrated to Galveston Texas. He set foot on the island on Dec. 22, 1840. He applied for a 4th class land grant and quickly sold it. He would later buy some city property. His activities during the early 1840's are unclear.
He married Anna Maria Smith on July 5, 1849 in the Methodist Episcopal Church South. Two children were born, Marion Smith Stines in 1850 and Anna Maria born in 1853. Staines enlisted in the Confederate service on Sept. 22, 1861. He would become a private in Company C. of DeBray's 26th Texas cavalry. He was present at the Battles of Galveston, Mansfield and Pleasant Hill. He was assigned to the regimental teamsters because of his age. He suffered from rheumatism for most of his service. He was killed 'by accident' on July 22, 1864 while DeBray's men were in the swamps of Louisiana. Nothing is known about the exact cause of death or burial. His widow would marry Frederick Wolfean in 1870. Anna divorced Wolfean in 1890. She died in Chambers County Texas on Jan. 22, 1901.
