NORTH CAROLINA DEAD The Landmark, Statesville, N.C. May 15, 1896 Of the Confederate soldiers who lie buried at Winchester, Virginia, the graves of nearly all from the states other than North Carolina are marked by suitable headstones. There are 448 graves of North Carolina soldiers which are unmarked, save by pine boards, on which are inscribed, in most cases—and whenever facts were known—the name, company, regiment. These boards were furnished by the pious, patriotic women of Winchester for the purpose of identifying the graves and in anticipation that they would be replaced by monuments of more enduring form. These are decaying and the time has come, if we would save the resting places of our dead patriots from oblivion, that we should mark them by proper headstones. The Rev. James Battle Averett who, during the war, and for many years thereafter, had his home in Winchester, and his good wife, a native of Manchester, have interested themselves in this matter and have procured for us the names of the Confederate soldiers who are buried in Winchester. A list of those is published below. It will only cost $3.50 apiece to procure marble headstones, with the proper inscriptions thereon. It will be seen from the list that nearly every North Carolina regiment that was in General Lee’s army has some representation there. It is proposed that this headstone shall be provided by the following plan: let every person who will help us in this work, instead of making a general contribution, pay for one or more stones. If it should happen, in looking over the list, that someone would prefer to purchase a stone for some particular soldier, that they may do so, with the understanding that should two or more make the same selection, that the first one making the selection would have it and the contribution of the other would go into the general fund. Mr. T.P. Jerman(?), principal clerk in the auditor’s office at Raleigh, has kindly consented to receive and hold the contributions until the work shall be accomplished. Let everyone who will pay $3.50 for a stone, or who will pay at that rate for several stones, (and I doubt not that there are several who will purchase several), send the money at once to Mr. Jerman(?). I appeal to the people of the state and especially to those old soldiers for I realize that upon them the scheme depends for success, to respond very promptly and liberally. Veteran comrades, these be our brothers. C.M. Cooke Raleigh, N.C. The following is a list of North Carolina Confederate soldiers with their company and regiment who lie buried in Winchester, Virginia, and whose graves are without a headstone. (Transcriber’s note: While every effort was made to correctly show the list below, often the ink had faded and even enlarging the print cold not correctly reflect the written words—often the middle or ending part of a name was illegible, ink blots over the letters of the regiments or companies—always verify by a second source.)

February, 1890 D.L. McMatheson, Esq., of Taylorsville, while in Washington this winter, made the acquaintance of an ex-Federal soldier who furnished him with a list of names below, accompanied by the letter he had sent which explains the list. Mr. Matheson has kindly put the Landmark in possession of this material and it is more than likely that some of our readers will find in this list the names of some relative or friend whose fate has been hitherto unknown. Washington, D.C. January 10, 1890 Mr. McMatheson: Dear Sir: Below is a list of the names of Confederate soldiers of North Carolina regiments who were buried in the cemetery at Frederick City, Maryland. While detained during a shower while on a visit there a short time ago, I copied it from the cemetery record, thinking I might be able to do a kindness to someone whose friend’s grave has been unknown. It is a lovely spot and the Blue and Grey lie peacefully beneath the shadows of the Cypress. With kind regards, I am faithfully yours, S.I.
