 William Washington McGraw was born in Marshall Co Mississippi and was in Navarro County by the 1900 Census. He served in Co I, 2 MS Cavalry known as the Lula White Rebels. McGraw enlisted late in the war.
The rolls of December 31, 1864, show the companies at Tuscumbia, Carthage, Fulton and Cotton Gin. Mr. W. T. Turner of Kaufman County, Texas wrote that he knew W. W. McGraw and in fact had served with him in the same unit from the time of his enlistment until their surrender in about April 1865. In a correspondence dated June 25, 1913 Turner wanted McGraw to come to Kaufman so they could see each other and "talk over old times."
