William Miles Kennedy

I have a picture of my ggrandfather William Miles Kennedy, and also a couple of toombstone photos. It says on the following that he deserted and I still have not gotten proof that he did not, but we know he didnt and I guess that is all that matters at this point :)

Name: William M. Kennedy
Residence: Sumter Co., Georgia
Enlistment date: 03 September 1861
Distinguished Service: DISTINGUISHED SERVICE
Side Served: Confederacy
State Served: Georgia
Unit Numbers: 336 336
Service Record: Enlisted as Private on 03 Sept 1861. Enlisted in Company K, 9th Infantry Regiment Georgia.
Deserted on 04 August 1864 in New Market Heights, Va.

I also have a couple more relatives in Company K, I am trying to get more info and pictures on for you also. If you would like the photos email me plz. Barbara

Re: William Miles Kennedy

Do you have Pvt. Kennedy's CMSR (Compiled Military Service Record)? I have seen mistakes before, but his CMSR could shed some light on it. As for photos of the men, they are always welcome, with my thanks.
