    Wiley might have been a couple of years older than his tombstone indicates. According to Old Time Tazewell (see sources), Wiley and family lived on his father's homestead at least through the time of the book. His father's notes contain details and well as the notes of James D. Walker; see John Burch's notes.

    No record found of his service when checked when his widow applied for a pension.

    11. Title: Claiborne County Tennessee Marriages, 1868-1891
      Author: Sistler, Byron and Barbara
      Publication: Nashville: Byron Sistler and Associates, 1984
      Note: Marriages listed by both bride and groom. Per the preface, the lack of a second date indicates a lack of reported performance of a marriage; however, many times, the phrase "no return" is used, and some comparable sources show perfomance on the day of issuance for some. As used as a source in this database, the lack of a return date without further notification is considered an approximate likely marriage date.
