Was William Kile Court Martialed?

We've mentioned William Kile here in several posts. He was apparently involved in local and federal legal proceedings in the 1850s and 1860s. There are annotations on his muster entries that he was "under arrest." We are going to see if there is any record of his having been court martialed.

Of course, if he was court martialed, the charges must have "not stuck" as he did receive a pension.

We'll have an update when we have more information.
