VERNON, W.A. - W.A. or "Bill Ann" Vernon, died recently at his home near Baldwin. He was 77 years of age, had never been married and was rather eccentric in his ways and had accumulated quite a fortune. Mr. Vernon died intestate and his three sisters, Mrs. Emeline Skelton, Mrs. Mary Skillern and Miss Martha Ann Vernon will inherit his estate which his attorney estimates at $30,000.

William Anderson Vernon has originally joined Co. E, 1st Bn. Arkansas Cavalry, but afterward went through the war with his brother-in-law, John T. Skelton and had the same record. He had been under fire more than 100 times and had been in the following battles: Prairie Grove, Fayetteville, Poison Springs, Mark’s Mill, Pine Bluff, Saline and numerous skirmishes. He was never wounded but at Pine Bluff a shell tore a hole out of the shoulder of his coat. He never surrendered, but the unit broke up May 1865 on the Red River. W.A. Vernon died 24 December 1904 at Baldwin, Arkansas. – Robert R. Logan
