    Seeking information on W.H.L.

    Jones Jones Newbie

      Seeking information about civil war Confederate cavalry officer with initials W H L (WHL) where the L has some special accessorizing at the lip of the "L". He likely died prior to 3-May-1863. He likely was in the U.S. Army prior to the war. Any data would be appreciated.

      Thanks in advance.
