* Debord, William Confederate private McMillan's Company, North Carolina
Note by HLD: This is probably the William Debord, age 34, that shows on the 1860 Ashe NC census. That Wm was s/o Benjamin Debord b abt 1794 and Mary "Polly" Stitt. William Deboard enlisted in Co C McRae's Battalion on 11/10/1863 in Ashe Co NC
From the best I can figure out, Capt Andrew N. McMillan was Capt of Co A 26th NC Infantry until he was severely wounded at New Bern in March 1962. He then formed his own Company largley from around Ashe county NC to protect and scot the western border. Later, McMillan's Company appears to have become the nucleus of Co C of McRae's Battalion NC Calvary when that Battalion was formed in Sept 1863. McRae's Battalion seems to have disbanded about June 1864 and again Capt McMillan's Company appears to have continued to serve as an Independent company for several more months or at least until near the end of Sept 1864.

From The Free State of Lavaca (Boethel) p 11 William DeBord arrested on assault charge in ca 1860, was released and played a major roll in defeat of Sheriff in upcoming election.

Note by HLD: This is Steven William Debord, Jr b abt 1840 in KY s/o Steven William Debord and Lucy Ann Delud? and spouse of Emma Simmons (MNU). S. W. Debord marr Emma Simmons (appears to be a widow) in 1873 Lavaca Texas and Emma shows as a widow again on the 1880 census.

* Deboard, William Confederate Scott County, Virginia Militia
Note by HLD: This is probably William B. Debord (1836-1865 Scott Co Va) son of Cyrus Debord. William, his brother Reuben and his father Cyrus all later served in the Union Army with the 1st Regiment of the TN Cav. Wm's widow (Margaret Jane Clark Debord Revels) filed for a pension in 1904 Claiborne Co TN based on the service of her brother in law Reuben Debord, who she claimed was her husband.

* Debord, William B. (aka William B. Deboard) Confederate Infantry private Co K 64th Regiment, Virginia Mounted Infantry
Note by HLD: Descendants of William B. DeBord (1828-1896) recently placed a Civil War marker on his grave in Rowan Co KY. That Wm was son of Gideon Debord from NC and Wm married a distant cousin Mary Ann Debord in 1858 Smyth Co VA. I'm not sure how they determined that their Wm B. was the one that served in the 64th Regiment, but they may be correct. There does appear to more than one William B. Debord/Deboard that served in the War.

Lots of possibilities for the following 8 records, but most likely ncludes: (1) Wm B. Debord b 1840 s/o James P. Debord and Nancy Booth; (2) Wm H. Debord (1844-1910) husband of Rhoda Crabtree then her sister Mary Crabtree; (3) Some of the other Wm Debords
that served in more than one unit.
