Currituck County Military Records
Company G, 59th Regiment (4th Regiment NC Cavalry)
2004
North Carolina Troops 1861-1865]; Vol. 2; pgs. 315-323

This company, originally known as "Currituck Light Cavalry", was enlisted at Currituck Court House, Currituck County, beginning March 31, 1862, for three years or the war.  The initial recruits were principally from Currituck County.  At Currituck Court House on April 8, 1862, the company was mustered in as Captain Demosthenes Bell's Company, North Carolina Volunteers.  By the end of June 1862, the company was at Petersburg, Virginia [to view photos of the Petersburg National Battlefield click here], and the muster rolls for July-August and September-October 1862, report it at Sycamore Church, Prince George Co., Virginia.  On September 22, 1862, the company was assigned to the 59th Regiment N.C. Troops (4th Regiment N.C. Cavalry) and was designated Company "G".  After that date the company functioned as a part of the regiment and its history will be recorded as a part of the regimental history.  The information contained in the following roster of the company was compiled principally from the company muster rolls which covered from the muster-in roll (April 8, 1862) through September 1864.  No company muster rolls were found for the period after September 1864.  Although there are no Roll of Honor records for this company, useful information was obtained from receipt rolls, medical records, prisoner of war records, and other primary records, supplemented by state pension applications, United Daughters of the Confederacy records, and post-war rosters and histories.   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.

Additional information provided by Bryan Davis from Currituck County Heritage:
   
In an engagement with the 26th NY Calvary at Middleburg Virginia, on June 19, 1864, Lt. Lee was among 20 prisoners taken to Old Capital Prison in Washington D.C., where he was confined until paroled and exchanged 6 days later at City Point Virginia. The Supreme Court building now stands where the Old Capital Prison was.  Spring of 1865 was a hard one for the Confederates.  The future looked dark as they marched towards Appomattox. Here, Jerome B. Lee's horse was shot and wounded, but Lt. Lee was not hurt.
    Lt. Lee was among the 28,231 hungry and exhausted soldiers who surrendered at Appomattox.  Passing between Federal ranks on April 12, 1865, General Robert E. Lee's Confederated laid down their arms and battle-flags in a final ceremony. Jerome B. Lee's name appears as a signature on a 'Payroll of Prisoners of War,' given in accordance with the terms of capitulation agreed upon by Generals Lee and Grant.
    Jerome B. Lee left Appomattox with a heavy heart and sore feet caused by frostbite while at U.S. Ford, Virginia. He turned his faithful horse southward and began the slow journey to Currituck County.  Upon arriving at the Currituck Courthouse, Lee stopped at the well for water.  Here he removed the minnie ball from his horses shoulder.  He kept the short as a reminder of the 'Lost Cause.'  At home Lee found his money worthless and the South reduced to dire poverty.
    In August 1868 Lee sold his plantation at Tulls Creek and built a one and one-half story on his wife's property which was located on the Currituck Sound, three miles north of the Currituck Courthouse.  Lydia lee died here on June 29, 1875, 12 days after the birth of her fifth child, who died at birth.
    On Oct 29, 1876, Jerome B. Lee married Mary A. Hutchins, and they were the parents of: Mary Estelle, Jesse Baily, Rosa, and Mollie Ann Lee.  Mary Lee died on August 14, 1884.  In December 1886, Lee married Sarah Rebecca Messick of Norfolk.  They resided in Norfolk and were the parents of a son, George Oliver Lee.  Lee later returned to Currituck and made his home with his son, Jerome Baxter Lee, and his daughter 'Essie' Davis.
   
Jerome Bunnill Lee died on March 16, 1919.  On his deathbed, as during life, he spoke of old civil war battles and his close call with death on the battlefield.  As requested, he was buried in his Confederate uniform with his medals pinned on his coat.
