Deposition B Case of Henry Wilson #2(for Civil War Union Pension)No. 1.140.861
My age is 54 year; occupation Barber and Post Office (Knoxville, Knox County, Tennessee). I once belonged to Joseph Martin of this city. The McKinneys and Martins lived close together. I knew Uncle Henry (Henry Wilson) here present as the old body servant of Judge McKinney. I knew him by the name of Henry McKinney or Uncle Henry. I waited on Colonel Ed Maynard of the 6th Tennessee Infantry Volunteers, I saw Uncle Henry when he enlisted in the 1st Heavy Artillery. I was home on leave and barbering at the time. I frequently saw him with his artillery uniform on. I did not visit the camp, but knew the 1st Heavy Artillery was stationed here. Uncle Henry changed his name to Wilson when he enlisted. (I) don’t know why he changed his name. I can’t tell you the company he served in. He has been known by the name of Henry Wilson ever since, so far as I know….
