Like Alan, I have had no luck in locating an Allen Young Williams in any *Confederate* unit.
That doesn't mean that he didn't serve, as I was using Broadfoot's index of Confederate soldiers. Broadfoot's only includes those soldiers found in NARA microfilm of compiled Confederate service records, and that microfilm has only about 75-80% of all soldiers who served.
It also still leaves open the possibility that he served in a Union regiment. An estimated forty Union Army soldiers were killed at Fort Henry.
