I am related and named after one of the Kentucky boys Randall Osborne mentioned. The were with the 16th Virginia Cav in McCausland's Brigade. I got my first name, William, from William P. Deskins who was killed at Moorefield, West Virginia in August of 1864 about a week after hte burning of Chambersburg. The yanks were extremely pissed about this little foray and the burning of the 270 or so houses, etc. I am sure there were more Kentucky Boys in hte 16th and probly the 17th ad 22nd Cavs which were units formed on the "border." And the commander of Buford's Brigades on the first day of the Gettysburg fight was Brig. Gen. John Buford from cnetral Kentucky. A friend of mine, Jon Wells, formerly of Paintsvile said he had family in hte 16th Virginia and he visited Chambersburg a few years ago. When he told his tour guide he had family in the 16th the guy wouldn't talk to him anymore. They are still mad!!
