REMEMBERING THOSE WHO SERVED
Below is an alphabetical list of all known soldiers from Hyde County,
including those Hyde County soldiers who served in companies formed elsewhere,
with any pertinent military and genealogical information that is now available
to me, also the rosters of the companies of the North Carolina State Troops
formed in Hyde County, NC, which served in the Confederate States Army
(CSA); and a list of the officers of the Hyde County Militia (1861). Although
these companies were formed in Hyde County, they also contained soldiers
from other counties. I need your help in adding any data which you may
have on any of these Hyde soldiers and correcting anything you find which
There are also links to pages for those Confederate Soldiers in Hyde County who received pensions by the North Carolina Pension Acts of 1896 and 1902 and the Hyde County 1890 Civil War Veterans Census, which includes some Confederate soldiers. Please keep in mind that research in all of these areas is an ongoing process, and that these are not definitive lists. There may be veterans whose names do not appear on the lists and some listed may not have been from Hyde County. Much research remains to be done. If you know of any omission or errors, please contact me. Please contribute any information you may have, before, during and after the service of these soldiers, including all sources you have for this information.
