    Surgeon's Discharge of Pvt. William A. Derryberry Co. "H," Maury Greys/Grays, at Hunterville, VA, Dec. 1861

    William Alexander Derryberry of the Lasea community of Maury County, was discharged for illness from Co. "H" of the 1st Tennessee Infantry, was wounded while serving with the 9th Tennessee Cavalry, and wounded again while with Co. "E" of the 48th Tennessee Infantry. While with Co. "H," on that long, cold Virginia campaign in the winter of 1861, William took measles, as many Southern farm boys did during that conflict, not having been exposed to such before. (Many of his comrades died). According to notes in his CSA Pension Application, the measles "settled in his lungs," and he was dangerously ill for three or four months before recovering enough to return to service.

    Following is a transcription of papers discharging him from Confederate service on 3 December 1861 and returning him to his home near Columbia, TN. (After his return to service, he would continue to serve until the surrender of his unit in May 1865):
