U.S. COLORED TROOPS- GRANVILLE COUNTY

Updated List (2/18/2011)

The following is a listing of some of the soldiers who were born in Granville County, North Carolina, and who enlisted to serve in what was known as the United States Colored Troops during the Civil War. Most of these men were apparently living in other locations when they enlisted, and these records could possibly give a clue to where their families originated from, or relocated to.

For those wishing further Regimental and Battle History, there is a wonderful website called “The Civil War Archive”, which you may want to visit:

Notations below made as part of the record are marked with a single asterisk *, while those made by me are enclosed in double asterisks **.
