My maternal grandfather, Carl Council Bare, ran away from home. Jefferson, North Carolina, on Easter Sunday, 1928, after hiding his suitcase in the trees, and making a deal with a local taxi driver to take him down the road out of town. Carl then hitch-hiked across Tennessee stopping to work for a time at the Dupont Rayon Factory in Nashville, and then continued his travels West, using his thumb for transportation, across Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas. In April of 1930, he arrived in Tribune, KS, found work at the Kuttler Cattle Ranch and married Annabelle Foley. Their firstborn was my mother.

Thomas Jefferson Cozort - Private   
Thomas Jefferson Cozort (aka Cozart) was named for President Thomas Jefferson because both had the same birthday, July 4. President Jefferson died on July 4, 1826. Thomas Jefferson Cozart died on July 3rd, 1863, the day before his 22nd birthday. On that day he volunteered to carry the flag of the ill-fated 26th NC during the infamous Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg. He was cut down about 10-20 feet from 'The Angle.' In one of the Yankee units facing him near The Angle was a Cozart; in another Union unit backing up the troops on the line was yet another Cozart. Sitting out the War in Gettysburg was another cousin, Jefferson Thomas Cassat(t), who served only one month in a PA unit because of a 'bad back.' He later became a stone mason and fathered at least 6 children. 'What did YOU do in the war, Daddy?' Thomas J. lost an older brother, John C. Cozart, at the Beaver Dam Creek fight of the Seven Days Battles. Beaver Dam Creek is aka Mechanicsville. John may have been killed less than a month after enlistment; he died 6/26/1862. Interestingly -- and tragically -- Thomas J.'s outfit the 26th lost over 90% of its 803 men at Gettysburg; John's 38th NC Infantry was also in Pickett's Charge and had about 90% casualties. Thomas' Company F had 100% casualties. Both units were involved in the (in)famous 'High Water Mark' of the Gettysburg debacle: the place where the Confederates actually breached Union lines during Pickett's madness.

J.T C. Hood - Sergeant   
J.T.C. Hood was an orderly sergeant (1st Sergeant) of Co. F 26th Regiment. Company name was the Hibriten Guards, also known as the Hibriten Boys. (His brother Gaston was corporal of Co. A, 22nd Regiment, 1st Regiment to leave Lenoir, N.C.) A family history, given to my aunt Joan, shows J.T.C. Hood enlisted at age 24. He was wounded in the foot and thigh and captured at or near Gettysburg, PA, July 1 - 5, 1863. Hospitalized at Gettysburg until transferred to Davids Island, NY, Harbor, 7/17-24/1863. Paroled at David's Island and transferred to City Point, Virginia, where he was received Sept. 8, 1863, for exchange (he was a war prisoner). Returned to duty on or about July 1, 1864. Reported absent wounded from September - October, 1864, through December 1864. Place and date wounded not reported. Returned to duty in Jan. Feb. 1865. Present or accounted for until paroled at Appomatox Court House, Virginia, April 9, 1865. (portions of text are from 'North Carolina Troops (1861 - 1865) A Roster'). I have a copy of the article entitled 'Unparalleled Loss' with the bi-line 'Company F, Twenty-Sixth Regiment N.C.T., at Gettysburg 1 July, 1863 written by Captain R. M. Tuttle.  Also, there were 4 newspaper articles in the Lenoir, NC paper in May 1996 by John O. Hawkins discussing J.T.C. Hood's first-person account of Gettysburg. It says he was from Collettsville, NC.

J.T.C. Hood is quoted in quite a few Civil War books for saying that 'they mowed us down like wheat before the sickle.'

His full name was James Theodore Carroll Hood. His name in some Civil War records is shown as John T. C. Hood. But he is most often listed as J.T.C. Hood. He was married to Elizabeth Chambers. They lived in Caldwell County, N.C. They had 12 children, 7 of which died before reaching adulthood. He is my 2nd great grandfather through his son , Oscar Hood.

Daniel Sneed Liles - Private   
Daniel died of the injuries he received at Gettysburg in 11/1864. I managed to find an excerpt in a book that printed a letter he wrote his parents right before he died in a hospital in Florence S. Carolina. I contacted the author who said there was an article with 27 of his letters printed with a picture. Can't wait to get them! He died a lonely death begging his parents to come see him. I am trying to find who has the original letters and the letter from the hospital informing his parents about his last moments. He is my uncle.
