HYDE COUNTY'S MILITIA OFFICERS
(The following excerpt of Hyde County is taken from pages 34-35 of North Carolina Confederate Militia Officers Roster As Contained in the Adjutant- General's Officers Roster by Dr. Stephen E. Bradley, Jr. and is copied verbatim. The columns indicate the soldier's name, rank, date of commission, town and comments. Dr. Bradley states in his introduction "...Where the notation [inserted] appears, it indicates that that entry was written above the next entry. While I would assume that the information for that subsequent entry would apply to the inserted individual, I chose to leave further information blank because the source is not explicit. Many entries in the Adjutant-General's book had the notation "NR" either to the left of the name or in the "Comments" column. I can at this time only guess its meaning; there is yet no context to give a definitive answer. In my text, you will find the notation "NR" in all instances in the "Comments" column.")
