William henry Clemmons was the son of Robert Clemmons and Elizabeth Swain. He was born Feb. 1, 1839 in Lockwood Folly,Brunswick County and died Oct.22, 1911. He is buried in the Galloway Cem. Lockwood Folly [now Supply] Brunswick County. He married first Maulsey A. Simmons Feb. 5,1861 she was born Jan 27.1861 and died June 7,1879 She is buried in Galloway Cem. He married Emma Jane Sellers July 8, 1880. She was born Jun 22,1860 and died Nov.5.1929 in Lockwood Folly. She was buried Nov 7, 1929 in the Galloway Cemetery.

William served in Co. G 20 Regt.N.C.Infanty. Enlisted at Fort Johnson May 10, 1862. Wounded at Gaines Mill, Va. June 27,1862. Returned to duty and was captured at Gettysburg July 1, 1863 Confined at Fort Delaware, Delaware and Point Lookout , Maryland. Exchanged at Aikens Landing, James River, Va. May 1864 and returned to duty Nov-Dec 1864. Paroled at Appomattox Court House, Va. April 9, 1865.

He had a brother Samuel B. Clemmons born 1829 in Lockwood Folly but I can't find any thing on him. I was not able to find a Samuel D. Clemmoms at all.

Hope this helps.
