Getting back to you at this late date after more research. My 79-years-young shirt-tail cousin is THE family historian. I stand corrected on the spelling...William Andrew Thomasson. He enlisted the same day and place and into the same unit as Hansford in Arkadelphia. He is the one who brought the news of Hansford's death back to Arkansas. While I've seen documentation of a skirmish at Citronelle, Whistler, Eight-Mile Creek Bridge written by a Union Maj-Gen, it occured before surrender. Hansford's death was reported to have occured just hours after surrender. Perhaps I need to be directed to another skirmish. Hansford's son was alive when the news of his father's death arrived. There are living people in my family who heard the story from him. All agree Hansford was killed near Mobile in a skirmish in April 1865. My cousin is convinced he has seen Hansford's name listed in another unit after the 23rd surrendered. However my cousin's house was destroyed in a fire in 1980-something and all records were lost. I have searched in vain to find either Hansford or Andy listed in any other unit than the 23rd Arkansas Infantry. Side note, Andy was captured along with the unit and paroled the next day. (!) I am going to be requesting your compilation on Hansford in hopes you have the additional information. This has become a bit of a friendly competition between me and my Cuz, as to who can locate the 2nd set of service records first. I know Hansford's widow received his pension, so I'm hopeful the information is listed there.
