CFE-DCA-E. Captain William Henderson MALTBY, b. Mar. 14, 1837 (David 6, Wm.5, Wm.4, Jos.3, Dan.2, Wm.1). "He was a Captain of Texas Artillery in the Confederate Army during the Rebellion," wrote his sister Lydia Maltby Barber. He had several children. He died at Corpus Christie, Texas, Aug. 20, 1880. Here once again we have a family divided against itself with his elder brother a hero in the army of the Union.

Whether or not the following pertains to him, I do not know. (War of Rebellion. Official Rec. of the Union and Confederate Armies.

Series I. Vol. IX. p.703)

"William H. Maltby. Camp Esperanza. Mch. 4, 1862. "If I can get my hands on Lieutenant Maltby I will treat him harshly; he has stated that he chased two boats' crews 3 miles, this is not so; here is --- muster roll. . . .I looked at the document, and saw the names of four men whom I knew, and I learned belonged to Maltby's party. He said Maltby's statement reflected very much on the action of his crew in that instance and used hard language, against the un- soldier like conduct."

                       Signed: C.S.P.A. Major Dan D. Shea."

CFE-DCA-Ea.  Mary Maltby.  Address was P.O.Box 919, Los Angeles, Cal.

Note. Mrs. Edith (Maltby) Dickinson owns the funeral notice of Capt. William Henderson Maltby, "who died last evening, at 6 1/2 o'clock," the funeral being set for "Today, at 11 o'clock, A.M."

The border is black; at the top is a cemetery scene, stones, weeping willows, etc. A woman, in hoop skirt and short jacket is clad with a heavy veil hanging from the rim of her poke bonnet--in front only--holds a little girl by the hand, while they gaze at an old-fashioned tombstone."

His nephew, Mr. Jason A. Barber, wrote of his Uncle William Maltby (brother of Mr. Barber's mother, Lydia E. Maltby) "Later on, when I was twelve or thirteen, I became acquainted with my Uncle William Maltby of Corpus Christie, Texas. To my youthful mind he took the highest place of anybody I ever met and he had the most charming personality of any person that I ever knew, except, perhaps, Edwin Booth. I named one of my children after him, William Maltby Barber."
