It has been passed down through the family that my great grandfather Madison Jefferson Kilpatrick left Cherokee County, North Carolina and settled in Smith County, Texas because he did not wish to fight in the Civil War, that he did not believe what the South was fighting for. During a trip to the National Archives in Washington, D.C. I found that on June 17, 1861 he enlisted at age 16 in Company A, 29th Regiment, North Carolina Troops, also known as the 'Cherokee Guards'. The company fought at the battle of Cumberland Gap, Murfreesboro, Tenn, and Chickamauga.

His unit was Co C,NC 29th Infantry. James must have saw hell on earth. He fought in every major battle with his unit until he was killed in July,1864 at Kennesaw Mountain Georgia.That unit was poorly fed,clothed and equiped.
Someone that was there and knew the family came by and told the family the last time he saw James he was laying across a stump(some say fence) and had been cut almost in half by a large shell.The family never knew what became with his body.

Stephen Gibson - Private   
'Free Man of Color' Stephen Gibson: Residence Jackson County NC; 34 years old. Enlisted and mustered on 8/31/1861 at Jackson County, NC as a Private into 'F' Co. NC 29th Infantry. He was discharged (probably for being either Black or over-age) on 11/8/1862. In his pension application he states he was 'captured and paroled' at Nicholasville, Kentucky, as the two Armies maneuvered for position before the Battle of Perryville, Ky when the Union Army evacuated Cumberland Gap.

On page two of his application there is the following :

'This application is that of an old colored man,he was there at the beginning of the war and enlisted in Captain Enlow's Company F 29th NC Troops and served in his command until Bragg's campaign in Kentucky in 1862. Captain Enlow says he was a faithful & good soldier, and he would like to see him have a pension. He is a very feeble old man and not likely to live more that a year, two at most. Captain Enlow requests a favorable response to the old fellow's situation'.
Not a relative, I only honor his service
