Aaron W Brooks - Private   
My family never knew what happened to my mother's great grandfather during the war. 'He went in service and never came back ' was all anyone knew. Recently I discovered he died as a POW and was buried at one of the Union prisons. We do know he enlisted in the 50th Infantry from Person County NC. Anyone with information please email me. Thank You

Festus Leroy Oliver - Unknown   
Lived with Creech relatives in Household of Herrin Creech of Johnston County NC. Was 18 at time of 1860 census. Listed as in 50th Regiment.
Would like any information as to how he fits into the Oliver family ie parents' names. My grandfather, born in the late 1800s, was also Festus Leroy Oliver but we cannot document the type of relationship and assume the latter was named after the Confederate Festus Leroy Oliver. Oliver was listed as a timber getter in the 1860 census and may have had a younger sister named Mary Oliver, also living with the Creeches.

Jackson Joseph Thomas - Unknown   
He served in Co. F, 50th NC Infantry, CSA. The 50th Regiment was organized on 15 Apr 1862 at Camp Mangum, near Raleigh, and was composed of ten companies, A through K (there was no Co. J). When first organized, the regiment had not a single musket, but drilled with what was known as the “Confederate Pike.” This consisted of “. . . a wooden handle about ten feet long, at one end of which a dirk-shaped spear was securely fastened, and attached to this spear at the shank, or socket, was another steel blade in the form of a brier hook in order, as the boys said, that they could get them ‘a-going and a-coming.’” This description is from “War Diary of Kinchen Jahu Carpenter” (Rutherfordton, NC, privately published, 1955).

On 31 May 1862 they went by rail to Weldon, in Halifax County near the Virginia border, arriving the next day. They crossed the Roanoke River and on to Garysburg, where they were issued weapons, a mixture of British Enfields, Richmond rifles, Austrian Lorenz rifles, and assorted muskets. The men of Company F, his company, were all issued the Austrian Lorenz. The 43rd, 45th, and 50th Regiments were assigned to Daniel’s Brigade, commanded by COL Junius Daniel of the 45th Regiment. They spent three weeks drilling and standing guard on the Roanoke River railroad bridge, then on 19 Jun 1862 the brigade departed for Petersburg, Virginia, where it was assigned to the division of MG Theophilus H. Holmes and moved to a defensive position just north of the city at Drewry’s Bluff, on the south side of the James River.

From there the 50th participated in the battle of Malvern Hill, also known as Poindexter's Farm. They were on the far right of the division line and received a fierce shelling from Union artillery on Malvern Hill. This was the sixth and last of the Seven Days’ Battles (25 Jun - 1 Jul 1862), and the end of the Peninsular Campaign.

They spent most of the rest of the war near the eastern shore, conducting raids on Union positions and intercepting Union supplies. In the last months of the war the 50th went to South Carolina to help oppose Sherman as he moved north from Savannah. He was wounded in the foot in the late summer of 1864 (before the move to SC), and discharged in December of that year. He collected a pension from NC for his Civil War service, and the wound in his foot bothered him for the rest of his life.

William Ballard Dobbins - Unknown   
William Ballard Dobbins was born on 8 Jul 1841 in Rutherford Co NC. He appeared on the census in 1850 to 1880 and 1900 in Rutherford Co. He died on 11 Mar 1926 in Logan's Township, Rutherford Co. and was buried in Mt. Vernon Baptist Cemetery. He was a farmer in Rutherford Co NC. He served in the CSA army in Co 1, 50th Reg. He enlisting 3 May 1862. He had two years of active service and was badly wounded in the hip and shoulders. When he recovered he served in the ambulance corps under Dr. Duffy with great distinction and showed the same bravery as in action. The work of an ambulance corps in those days was heavy indeed. There were great swamps to transverse and the roads through them were only several rough hewn planks laid on logs. Missteps were dangerous. On one occasion Dr. Duffy and William Dobbins were bringing two wounded soldiers to base station. They were stopping to let their horses rest in a thickly wooded part of a swamp, when suddenly a black bear appeared and made for them. They moved on quickly and a successful escape was made. William had many interesting wartime experiences and was often asked to relate them.
