CIVIL WAR--CLEMONS, WILLIAM R. is actually CLEMENT, WILLIAM RILEY, who was a soldier in Company G, 52nd Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry, the "Alleghany Rangers." He was listed as a private on 4 Mar 1862. He was captured at Vicksburg, Miss. on 4 Jul 1863 and paroled there in 1863. He was listed as "missing" at Dalton, GA in 1864, perhaps leading to the confusion of his death. WILLIAM RILEY CLEMENT did not die in the Civil War. He had two children before the War and came home to father four more. He died in 1911 and is buried in Mt. Pleasant 2 Church Cemetery.
