Augustine Clayton Wyly

A friend of mine in Liverpool, England is researching Liverpool's connections with the War Between the States (1861-65) for the Liverpool Heritage Walk (a tourist attraction)and has found the graves of two Wyly children. He wonders if someone might help him identify their parentage.
The death certificates read:
"Linda Wyly, female, age 7 years, died of diptheria 5 May 1864, Victoria Hotel, Waterloo, Great Crosby, daughter of Augustine Clayton Wyly, Produce Merchant, signed M. Douglas Edmiston, present at death."
"Troop Wyly, female, age 4 years, died of diptheria 16 May 1864 at the Royal Waterloo Hotel, Waterloo, Great Crosby, daughter of Augustine Clayton Wyly, Merchant, signed Archibald Edmiston, present at death."
On the tombstone for the children, the legend reads "Augustine Clayton Wyly, CSA." Therefore, the man in England believes that said Wyly must have been in the Confederate Army.
My research in the National Archives records did not find anyone by that name serving in the Confederate Army. Found via an Internet search one Augustine Clayton Wyly, who married a Josephine Hamilton, but was unable to accurately determine dates or location of these people. Any assistance would be appreciated. Annette Elam Wetzel
