Company D, 1st REGIMENT, N.C. TROOPS

 

Company D, 1st Regiment N. C. Troops (6 months, 1861)

This company was composed of men from Lincoln and Orange counties. Those from Lincoln County enlisted at Lincolnton beginning June 18, 1861, and the men from Orange County began enlisting on July 2, 1861. By the end of July the two groups were at Warrenton, Warren County, where the regiment had been organized on June 3, 1861. There the company was mustered in as Company D of this regiment. The company remained behind when the regiment was ordered to Virginia on July 22, 1861, and after completing its organization was ordered to join the regiment. It did so at Camp Bee, Brooke's Station, Virginia, August 30. 1861. After that date the company functioned as a part of the regiment, and its history for the war period is recorded as a part of the regimental history.

The information contained in the following roster of the company was compiled principally from company muster rolls for June 30 through August 31, 1861; November through December, 1861; March through April, 1862; and June 30, 1862, through December, 1864. No company muster rolls were found for the period prior to June 30, 1861, for September through October, 1861; January through February, 1862; May through June 29, 1862; or for the period after December, 1864. In addition to the company muster rolls, Roll of Honor records, receipt rolls, hospital records, 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: With the exception of officers, all those who were born or resided in the following counties have been excluded from this list: Alamance, Caswell, Edgecombe, Granville, Guilford, Franklin, Lenoir, Nash, Orange, Person, Rockingham, Wake, Warren, Wilkes.
