MUNCY, WILLIAM (1838 ~ 1909). Confederate veteran William Muncy was born in 1838 in Tennessee. During the Civil War he served in Company A, 33rd Texas Cavalry in the Trans-Mississippi.
Incidentally, the highest-ranking Mexican-American in the Confederate Army, Colonel Santos Benevides, commanded the 33rd Texas Cavalry. The 33rd defended the lower Rio Grande Valley.
Muncy moved to Texas in 1854 and lived in Denison, Grayson County. He was a single liveryman (kept stables for horses) when he was admitted to the Confederate Home on October 4, 1906.
He died at the Home on July 29, 1909 and was buried at the Texas State Cemetery.
