      Birth & death date & middle initial from LDS Ancestral File of Autumn Rich.

      Apparently killed in Civil War. Wonder if he's the Wanless who died at the Battle of Cedar Creek? But that wasn't until Oct 1864, so if his death date is right, he's not the one.

      1860 marriage license says he lived in Upshur Co (where his parents lived), but he apparently lived in Bath Co after he married until his death.

      Not listed in "Confederate Pension Rolls, Veterans and Widows" electronic card index online at LVA, under Wanless, Wandless, or Philips or Phillips. Need to check Union records.
