Currituck County Confederate Soldiers
Company B, 8th Regiment (Infantry)
2004
North Carolina Troops 1861-1865; Vol. 4; pgs. 533-542

    This company, known as Shaw Guards, was from Currituck County and was mustered in at Camp Macon, near Warrenton, Warren County, September 14, 1861, as Company B.  On September 20 the regiment was transferred to Confederate States service.  Two additional companies were mustered into service for the war on September 28, 1861 and assigned to the regiment.  These two companies were transferred to Confederate States service on September 30, 1861.  Thus the regiment had its full complement of ten companies.
    The regiment was ordered to Roanoke Island and left Camp Macon on September 18.  Arriving at its destination on September 21, the regiment went into camp near Fort Bartow.  The island was strategically located and if properly defended could block the passage from Pamlico Sound to Albemarle Sound.  The men of the regiment set up camp and worked on the fortifications.  This activity was interrupted when the regiment took part in an expedition against a Federal position at Chicamacomico on Hatteras Banks.  The plan of attack was for one regiment to land and attack the Federals while this regiment landed behind the position to cut off the enemy's retreat.  The attack was successful, but efforts to land this regiment failed, and the Federal made good their escape.  The regiment returned to its old camp on Roanoke Island on October 6.  The men returned to routine camp life and work on the fortifications.  At times, various companies were detailed to man the fortification for limited periods.
    Toward the end of the year the Federals planned an expedition against the coastal defenses of North Carolina.  Under General A.E. Burnside, an expeditionary force was assembled at Fort Monroe, Virginia.  The enemy fleet entered Pamlico Sound on January 13, 1862 and moved against Roanoke Island on February 6.  Under heavy bombardment on February 6, the enemy succeeded in landing troops on the island.  Although reinforcements had arrived, the Confederate forces were too poorly organized to withstand the attack of the numerically superior force.
    The information contained in the following roster of the company was compiled principally from a company muster-in and descriptive roll dated September 14, 1861, and from company muster rolls for January 1862 through April 1863, and for July 1863 through October 1864.  No company muster rolls were found for the period prior to January 1862; for May through June 1863; or for the period after October 1864.  In addition to the company muster rolls, Roll of Honor records, receipt rolls, hospital rolls, prisoner of war records, and other primary records, supplemented by state pension applications, United Daughters of the Confederacy records, and postwar rosters and histories, all  provided useful information.  NOTE:
Census information provided on some of the men below are from my own personal research.  If anyone has further records they'd like to share on any of these men, please feel free to e-mail me. Kay M. Sheppard]

Thomas Jordan Jarvis,  governor of North Carolina, was born in Jarvisburg, Currituck County, N.C., Jan. 18, 1836; son of the Rev. Banister H. and Elizabeth Jarvis, and grandson of Thomas Jarvis. He was graduated at Randolph-Macon College, Va., in 1860. In 1861 he entered the Confederate army as a private and was made first lieutenant in the 8th North Carolina regiment. In 1863 he was promoted captain, but his right arm being shattered by a bullet, he was obliged to retire from the service. He served as a member of the state constitutional convention in 1865, became a merchant, and while in business studied law, and was admitted [p.55] to the bar. He was elected a representative in the state legislature in 1868, was re-elected in 1870, becoming speaker of the house, and was a presidential elector in 1872. He was married, Dec. 23, 1874, to Mary, daughter of John Woodson. He was a member of the state constitutional convention in 1875, and in the following year was elected lieutenant-governor of North Carolina. In 1879 he became governor by the resignation of Governor Vance, elected to the U.S. senate, and in 1880 he was elected governor for the term expiring in 1885. He was appointed U.S. minister to Brazil by President Cleveland, serving 1885-89, and in April, 1894, on the death of Senator Vance, he was appointed by Governor Carr U.S. senator, his term expiring March 3, 1895. He was a delegate at large to the Democratic national convention of 1896. He received the honorary degree of LL.D. from the University of North Carolina in 1884, and was elected a trustee of that institution in 1883.

The name Jarvis has appeared in the history of Eastern Carolina from early colonial days, when one Thomas Jarvis bought from the Indians a strip of land between the Perquimans River and Carolina Sound in what was then known as the Albemarle country. By 1691 this Thomas Jarvis had attained sufficient influence to be appointed Deputy Governor of North and South Carolina when Colonel Ludwell was appointed Governor. In 1734 one Thomas Jarvis was a leading member of the Assembly. During the Revolutionary War Samuel Jarvis was a General in command of the Albemarle militia. According to the Federal census of 1790 the heads of three different families bore the name of Thomas Jarvis. It was the grandson of one of these men, Thomas Jordan Jarvis, son of Bannister Hardy Jarvis, who so endeared himself to the people of North Carolina by his wise and constructive statesmanship as to win for himself, in his declining years, the title of the "State's Grand Old Man."
    Born at Jarvisburg, in Currituck County, on January 18, 1836, the early years of his life were spent on his father's farm where he gained such training as could be had at home and attended such country schools as the neighborhood afforded. Not the least important influence during this period of his life was the influence of his mother who instilled in him the characteristics which so marked his later career.
    At the age of nineteen he entered Randolph-Macon College, then at Boydton, Virginia, from which he was graduated in 1860, and received the degree of M.A. the following year. His college career had been made possible through teaching at intervals and loans received through a friend.
    A few months after graduation he began teaching in Pasquotank County, where he was when the war between the States was declared. He immediately enlisted as a private, but in 1861 was commissioned as first lieutenant of Company B, Eighth North Carolina Regiment and a few months later was promoted to the rank of captain. For three years Captain Jarvis acquitted himself with credit in the field, but at the battle of Drewry's Bluff in May 1864, he received a wound in his right arm. The character of the wound necessitated a resection of a part of the bone and he was confined to the hospitals of Richmond and at Petersburg and was on parole when Lee surrendered. From the wound received at Drewry's Bluff Captain Jarvis never recovered, but carried always a lifeless right arm as a reminder of his war record.
    Those who served under him during that time testify to his courage, faithfulness, persistence and prudence. At the close of the war Captain Jarvis went to Tyrrell County, where he opened a small store in the town of Columbia, and began the study of law. In 1865 he was elected to the Andrew Johnson Convention by the people of Currituck, his native county.
    He continued to read law, received his license from the Supreme Court in 1867, and entered upon the profession that he was to follow the rest of his life.
    In 1868 he was chosen by the people of Tyrrell County to represent them in the General Assembly, where he began a public career of service to his State that lasted until his death. Few men have had the privilege of so long a period of public service.
    In 1870 he was Speaker of the House, in 1875 a member of the Constitutional Convention that relieved the eastern counties of negro rule.
    In 1874 Captain Jarvis married Miss Mary Woodson, a daughter of Judge John Woodson, of Petersburg, Virginia.
    In 1876 he was elected Lieutenant-Governor on the ticket with Vance, and in 1879, when Governor Vance became United States Senator, Lieutenant-Governor Jarvis became Governor. In 1880 he was elected to serve a full term. Coming to the executive chair fresh from familiar intercourse with the active men of the State, and fully informed on all the details of public matters, his administration of more than six years was one of the most brilliant in the annals of the State, standing out in particular for promoting public education, advancing the construction of the Western North Caroline Railroad, building the Western Asylum for the Insane, at Morganton, and the Eastern Asylum for the colored race at Goldsboro, the Governor's mansion in Raleigh, and the purchase of the land occupied at present by the Supreme Court building and the Department of Agriculture.
    An exposition in Raleigh, toward the close of his administration, revealed the State to itself, and a subsequent exhibit of her natural resources in an exposition held in Boston called the attention of many in the country at large to North Carolina's great mining, agricultural and industrial resources. The impression made by Governor Jarvis at this time was such as to cause several New England papers to advocate him as Vice-President of the United States.
    In 1884 Mr. Cleveland appointed Governor Jarvis as Minister to Brazil. In this capacity he served ably until the election of President Harrison, when he returned to Greenville and resumed the practice of law.
    Governor Jarvis was President of the State Democratic Convention which nominated Elias Carr for Governor and afterwards took an active part in the campaign with Carr, speaking in many places in the State.
    On the death of Senator Vance Governor Jarvis was appointed to fill his unexpired term in the United States Senate, but only served until the Legislature convened and elected his successor for the short term.
    In 1900, during the great suffrage campaign, the advice of Governor Jarvis was most eagerly sought and followed.
    As a lawyer he took part in many cases of State-wide importance. In 1902 he was counsel for the Justices of the Supreme Court who were impeached at that time. He was employed for the State in the litigation of the Atlantic and North Carolina Railroad.
    Not only in the counsels of the State, but of the church as well, was Governor Jarvis prominent. He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and represented his church in the General Conference, as well as on the Board of Trustees of Trinity College.
    The interest and activity of Governor Jarvis manifested for the cause of education as chief executive never grew less, but increased with his advancing years. His part in the founding of East Carolina Teachers Training School and his final appeal to the people of the State for the cause of education have been given elsewhere.
    Such a service and such a vision were fitting close to a life spent for the public good.
