Larkin H. Edwards - Private   
Enlisted: May 30, 1861 at Garysburg, NC into the North Carolina 5th Regiment Infantry, Company C
Rank: Private.


Larkin was a farmer in Johnston County, NC. When North Carolina seceded from the Union, he joined at the age of 26 and fought for the Confederacy until captured. He saw action in many of the major battles of the Civil War, including Manassas, The Peninsula Campaign, The Seven Days Battle, Antietam, and Gettysburg. During the Battle of Oak Hill (Gettysburg) on July 1, 1863, almost 60% of his regiment were killed, wounded or taken prisoner.

On Sept. 19, 1864 during the Battle of Winchester, he was captured and sent to Point Lookout Prison Camp, MD. Due to the fact that conditions in the prison camps at this point in the war were so unbearable and that the prisoner exchange programs had just about come to an end, Larkin took the Oath of Allegiance.

He joined the Union on Oct. 12, 1864 and was assigned to the U.S. Volunteer Infantry, 4th Regiment, Company E. The U.S. Volunteer Infantry was composed of about 6000 Confederate prisoners. They were later known as “THE GALVANIZED YANKEES”. Their purpose was to serve the Union in the West, where they protected settlers from Indians, restored stage and mail service, rebuilt telegraph lines and helped to protect the railroad supply trains. On June 18, 1866, he was mustered out of Union service.

After the war, Larkin came back home to Johnston County, NC, where he raised his family and continued to farm.

James Gray Clifford - Unknown   
James Gray Clifford, the fourth child of Joseph Clifford and Susannah Wells was born on 20 May 1816 in Rowan County, North Carolina. His first name was his mother’s father’s first name and his middle name was the maiden name of his father’s mother, Rachel Gray. He was married on 16 March 1839 to Rebecca Coker in Davie County. Rebecca Coker, the first child of William Coker and Sarah James, was born on 26 January 1818 in Rowan County.


The Civil War brought tragedy to James and Rebecca. Susannah Clementine Jones reported that James was particularly concerned that since he had relatives in the North, the War might pit brother against brother. James’s younger brother, Abner Painter Clifford, was living in Indiana by this time. Susannah reported that their older sons “being Union boys” did not volunteer, but were ultimately conscripted. Both of James’ older boys lost their lives as did his son-in-law. When it came time for their younger son, Franklin Augustus Clifford, to go, the family was particularly hard hit. Susannah Clementine Jones gave the following account of his going into the Army in 1863:

“When the morning came for Franklin to start the war, breakfast having been prepared and on the table, none felt like eating, but some of the family went to the table. But it was when Pa sat down to the table he could not eat. He broke down and wept aloud and left the table, said “My last son is taken.” He had borne up bravely till then.”

James Clifford’s two oldest sons, Joseph Calvin Clifford and William Green Clifford along with their brother in law, Robert Franklin Collette, were all inducted into Company G. of the 5th North Carolina Infantry Regiment on 30 November 13 August 1862. His younger son, Franklin Augustus Clifford was inducted into Company F, 42nd North Carolina Infantry Regiment in June 1963. Shortly after Franklin’s induction, James Clifford’s youngest son, James Roan Clifford born 29 Sep 1859 died at home on 1 September 1863.

Joseph Calvin Clifford was born in Davie County on 30 November 1839. He and his brother, William were conscripted into the Confederate Army on 13 August 1862. Both fought in the Battle of Gettysburg and Joseph was killed in that battle on 1 July 1863. 'Where There's a Will There's a Way' sets forth the following account of Joseph's death as given to the author by Ann Coker, Rebecca Coker's sister:

'Joe, she said was killed at the Battle of Gettysburg and William was taken prisoner and died as a prisoner of war in Elmira, New York. The story made a great impression on me and I can still remember the details of her story. As the North Carolina soldiers charged toward the Union lines, Joe cried out, 'Oh! Billy, I'm shot.''

William Green Clifford was born in Davie County on 20 July 1843. He went into the Confederate Army on 13 August 1862 with his brother and his brother-in-law and was with his brother at Gettysburg when his brother was killed. William was captured at Spotsylvania on 12 May 1864, was confined for a time at Point Lookout Maryland and was then transferred to Elmira, New York, where he lived to hear the news of the war being ended but died sonn there after on 12 May 1865 of chronic diarrhea.

James Clifford’s daughter, Sarah Matilda Clifford, was born in Davie County on 1 August 1841. She married Robert Franklin Collette, Sr. in Davie County on 15 November 1860. Their first child, Elvira Josephine was born in Davie County on 7 December 1861. Robert went into the Confederate Army on 13 August 1862, the same date that Sarah's two brothers were conscripted. He was captured at Spotsylvania Virginia in May, 1864, was confined for a time at Point Lookout, Maryland and was then transferred to Elmira, New York, where he died on 18 February 1865 of chronic diarrhea. During his last visit home before Robert was captured he left word that he wanted the baby they were expecting to be named Robert F. if it was a boy. Their second child, Robert Franklin, Jr, was born in Davie County on 3 Januarey 1865. (Michael Clifford and His Family, James Monroe Clifford and Frank Powers, 10 Sep 1993)
