These pages are dedicated to the memory of all the men from North Carolina that fought in the Civil War.
North Carolina Standard Raleigh November 27, 1861 Married, according to the rules of the Society of Friends at Rocky River, on the 20th inst., J. Milton Woody to Miss Lianna L., daughter of Isham Cox. Died, at his residence near Raleigh, on the 23rd inst., in the 59th (?) year of his age, Major Charles L. Hinton, known and highly esteemed throughout the state. His death will be lamented by a large circle of friends. Major Hinton was a native of Wake County and the only son of his father, David Hinton. His early education was at the Raleigh Academy. He entered the University in 1810 and graduated with the Class of 1814. He married at an early age and settled as a farmer on a fine estate where he lived and died. He was a man of fine address and popular manners; was in different periods a member of both the Senate and House of Commons of the General Assembly and for seven years the Public Treasurer of the state; an office which he filled with ability and integrity. He was also a justice of the peace in his county and for many years a prominent trustee of the University and was an efficient member of the Executive Committee of that board. In all his public duties he was firm and faithful; in his social relations kind and conciliatory. He was a good man. Possessed of wealth, he distributed liberal and generous hospitality and has left a name worthy of universal admiration for unswerving integrity, honor and public virtue—a bright example of a high toned country gentleman. Died, on the 7th inst., at C - - - ade, Rockingham County, Mrs. Mary Wilson Brodnan, wife of Dr. John G. Brodnan, aged about thirty years. The deceased was a member of the Episcopal Church and her walk and conversation in that regard with without blame—beautiful and holy. She was a truly lovely woman, gentle, graceful and unaffected in her demeanor, kind and cheerful in her disposition, pure as the angels in her words and behavior. Endowed with considerable wealth, she moved meekly and humble and seemed to think that her mission was a stewardship for those dependents and a ministry of charity in the world. The world, therefore, loved and admired her and her relations almost adored her; between her and her excellent husband the bond of sympathy for love was strong beyond the common strength of such ties. It seemed to be a love that was molded in Heaven and was but lent to earth like the roses to bloom for a season. God grant that it may bloom again in Heaven. North Carolina Standard Raleigh December 4, 1861 In a strict encounter with pistols and bowie knives at Goldsboro some days ago, Mr. Privett was killed instantly by a pistol shot. Several parties were engaged on both sides. North Carolina Standard Raleigh December 11, 1861 Married, at the residence of the bride’s father, on Tuesday, 3rd inst., by Rev. S.A. Stanfield, Hon. George Howard, Jr., of Wilson to Miss Anne R. Stamps, daughter of Dr. William I. Stamps. Died, in this city on Tuesday night last, Emma, eldest daughter of T.H. and M.E.

North Carolina Standard Raleigh December 18, 1861 Married, in this city on the (date illegible) by Mills H. Brown, Esq., David C.

Husted, in Raleigh, William H. Crow, Esq., of Petersburg, Va., to Mrs. Harriet D. Battle. Married, in Carteret County on the 28th ult., by M.F Arendell, Esq., of Washington, J. Hardisty, Esq., to Miss Katie Harrell. North Carolina Standard Raleigh December 25, 1861 We regret to record that on Thursday last after muster drill at the house of H.W. Patrick in the southwest part of this city, J.C. Canaday, a native of this county, but who has been absent several years, was killed by John Harwood. There had been no quarrel or provocation, it is said, but on Canaday’s coming out of the door, Harwood raised his gun and shot him dead on the spot. Harwood made his escape and we have not heard of his being taken. Harwood is six feet high, sparely built, dark hair, dark skin and is about thirty years of age. From what we learn, whiskey was an accessory to this crime. Married, at the residence of the bride’s father, on Tuesday evening, 19th inst., by Elisha H. Straughn, Esq., Jas. E. Perry to Miss Frances C. Johnson, all of Chatham Co. Married, at Surry Co., on Thursday, 12th inst., Abraham Mannox(?) to Miss Rebecca Nations, all of Surry. Died, at his residence in Chatham Co., on Dec. 14, Chadrac Siler, aged (illegible, might be 54??). The deceased a few weeks ago was called upon to witness the death of his only son, a member of the 26th (?) Regiment N.C.T., stationed near Carolina City. While there, he contracted the disease which lead to his departure and, it is hoped, to a more perfect union with Christ. He was a kind friend and neighbor, a tender father and a loving husband. To know him was to esteem him for his high sense of honor, his unceasing industry and his kind heart. He leaves behind a wife, two daughters and a number of relatives and friends to mourn his absence and may that God whom he has secretly worshipped bind up their wounded spirits. Married, at Washington, N.C. on the 11th (?) inst., by Rev. Edward(?) Green, Dr. G.W. B.- - - nall (one of the proprietors of Kittrell’s Springs) to Miss Mary C. Taylor, daughter of John Taylor.

North Carolina Standard Raleigh December 8, 1862 Tribute of Respect A tribute of respect was paid by the George Washington Lodge 174 of Chatham—Whereas it has pleased the Supreme Ruler of the Universe to remove from our midst on the 5th inst., our late brother Calvin L. Stone and thus cut off in the prime of life one who enjoyed the esteem and confidence of all, we pay this tribute of respect. Married, at St. Paul’s Church, Clinton, N.C., on the 25th inst., by Rev.

Gunter of Chatham Co., to Miss Sarah Davis, second daughter of Jackson Davis of Wake. Died, at his residence in Alamance Co, on Oct. 23, Dr. C.C. Tinnin, after a painful and lingering illness of three months which he bore with all the patience of a Christian. He leaves a wife and four children to lament their loss. He was 38 years of age and had been a member of the Methodist Church for 18 years. As a father he was indulgent perhaps to a fault, as a husband he was attentive and faithful, as a physician he had no superior—faithfully attending his patients. As a neighbor and Christian he will be long remembered. North Carolina Standard Raleigh January 22, 1862 Married, at Wake Co., on the 9th inst., by Rev. J.W.F. Rogers, Stow(?) Harmington of Harnett Co., to Miss Sarah Jane Dennis. Married, at Wake Co., on the 12th inst., by Rev. J.W.F. Rogers, William Booth, Esq., to Mary Isabella C. Stewart of Chatham.

Died, in this city on Friday morning, 17th inst., James Boylan, aged about 83 years. He was a highly respected citizen and his death will be regretted by a large number of people in Wake and especially by this intimate friends. Died, at Newbern recently, John M. Roberts, Esq., a highly respected citizen of that place and for many years an efficient cashier of the bank of the state. Died, on the 9th inst., after a protracted illness, Miss Eleann M. Green, daughter of Major and Anne Green of Orange Co., aged 15 years, 10 months and 17 days. Married, at Warrenton, N.C. on the 8th inst., by Thomas J. Judkins, Esq., Edward J. Cole to Aveta(?) Andrews, both of Mecklenburg County, Va. Dr. Peter M. Walker, an old resident of Wilmington, N.C., from which place he had lately removed to Mississippi, died suddenly on Tuesday while on a visit to Wilmington. Died, in Newbern on Wednesday, 28th ult., Mrs. Mary C. Cole wife of James C. Cole, Esq., of that place. The death of this esteemed lady has thrown a gloom over a wide circle. For purity of motive, unselfishness, benevolence, chaste and truthful conversation, a meek and kind spirit, charity towards others, untiring devotion to husband, children, friends, and kind, considerate of the wants of the poor, are characteristics of a true wife, a good woman than the writer of this small tribute has ever known, none better than Mrs. Cole. The loss of such a friend can but fill the hearts of the bereaved with deep sorrow but they hope to meet her again in a purer, brighter, better world. P. North Carolina Standard Raleigh February 12, 1862 Married, on the 4th inst., by Rev. Samuel Baldwin, C.M. Snipes(?) to Miss Margaret E. Lamb, all of Chatham. Married, in Surry Co., at the residence of the bride’s grandfather, Gideon Bryant, on the 18th inst., by G.A. McGraw, Esq., Jos. B. Spicer of Wilkes Co., to Miss Letitia Bryant of east Tennessee. North Carolina Standard Raleigh February 26, 1862 Married, in this city on Tuesday morning, 25th inst., by Rev. J.M. Atkinson, Rev. C.H. Wiley to Miss Mattie, daughter of James M. Towles, Esq. Married, on the 18th inst., by Rev. J.M. Perifoy, Mr. John R. Holland to Miss Caroline, daughter of George B. Allen, Esq., all of Wake Co. Married, on Tuesday evening, 18th inst., by Dr. W.F. Hayes(?) at the residence of George W. Trice, Esq., in this city, Mr. Alexander Williams of Chatham Co., to Miss Martha H. Massey of Wake. Died, in this city on Wednesday last, Mrs. Margaret A. McPheeters, widow of the late Dr. McPheeters, in the 67th year of her age. She had been a member of the Presbyterian Church for fifty years and adorned her profession by her excellent temperament and the daily exhibition of the graces of a matured Christian. Few ladies were better known or more universally beloved and few have been more eminently useful as a mother, neighbor and friend. This community deeply feels her loss but the stroke falls particularly deeply on her children and those immediately connected with her. She died as she had lived, a bright example of the power of saving grace. Her end was peaceful and she rests with Jesus. Died, near this city on Saturday morning last at the residence of her brother-in-law, Colonel Willis Whisker(?), where she had been on a short visit, Mrs. Martha Courts, wife of Daniel W. Courts, Esq., Public Treasurer of the state. Few have known a better woman than our departed friend. Modest, unassuming and gentle in her demeanor, she labored to fill up the measure in her duty to God and to the community. Truth and charity were happily blended in all that she said and did. Nurtured under pious influences to please her Maker, and to live void of offense towards mankind. Perhaps no one lives who could indulge an unkind feeling towards her. Her immediate family and friends must deeply deplore her removal from them and her loss will be keenly felt by the Methodist congregation in this city with which she has been connected for many years. Her death was like her life, calm and submissive and peaceful and freed from the turmoil of life. We doubt not her happy spirit is with God. P. North Carolina Standard Raleigh March 5, 1862 Married, by Rev. William C. Meredith in Christ Church, Winchester, Va., at 12:00 Wednesday, 28th ult., Rev. Jas. B. Avirett, C.S.A. to Miss Mary L.D.

North Carolina Standard Raleigh April 2, 1862 Died, in Murfreesboro, N.C. on Feb. 18, of a serious tumor in the breast, Mrs. Martha Rebecca Manning, wife of Dr. M.E. Manning of the same place. Mrs. Manning was a great sufferer. Her disease baffled the skill of her physicians and every effort to relieve her. But she was a Christian and bore her afflictions with courage and fortitude. When death came she was resigned and happy and peacefully breathed her last. She had been for several years a member of the Christian Church. North Carolina Standard Raleigh April 9, 1862 Died at Graham, N.C., on the morning of the 2nd inst., Kate Davis, eldest daughter of J.L. and Mrs. Kate A. Pennington, aged three years, six months and twenty three days. North Carolina Standard Raleigh April 16, 1862 Died, in Currituck County, N.C. of diphtheria, Eva, only child of P.H. and Ella Simmons, aged one year, six months and eleven days. Died, in Lendie(?), Caldwell Co., 27th March, in the 45th year of her age, after a long and most painful illness which she bore with exemplary patience and submission, Mrs. Sarah J., wife of General William F. Jones, and youngest daughter of the late General Edmund Jones. It will be regarded as more than justice to the memory of the deceased by all those who had the pleasure of her acquaintance to say that she possessed in an eminent degree all the characteristics which constitute female excellence. Endowed by nature with a strong intellect which had been greatly improved by cultivation and association and possessing great personal charms she was not only an ornament of all the social and refined circles in which she lived but was distinguished for the liberal exercise of the nobler qualities of generosity, charity and benevolence. To crown the whole, she was a pious and devoted Christian. For many years prior to her death she was a member of the Episcopal Church to which she was most warmly and firmly attached and during her last illness gave her friends repeated assurances that all was peace within and that she longed for the moment when her soul would be transported from this vale of tears and sorrow to the mansions of eternal bliss. Her distressed husband and children and an only surviving sister and brother who she has left behind may be assured of the sympathy of her many friends accompanied by a sincere hope that He who tempereth the wind to the shorn lamb will be the guide and protector of her bereaved family through subsequent life. North Carolina Standard Raleigh April 23, 1862 Married, according to the custom of the Society of Friends, at Cane Creek, Alamance Co., N.C. on the 8th of the second months last, Ored Marshburn of Chatham Co., to Julia daughter of John Dixon of Alamance.

Died, in Franklinville, N.C. on the 15th April of heart disease, Mrs. Lucy Makepeace, wife of George Makepeace, in the 55th year of her age. The deceased was a member of the M.E. Church during the last 38 years and was a strict observer of the rules and discipline of the same; was always kind and attended to the sick and poor and leaves a large circle of friends to mourn their loss. Died, in this city on the morning of the 21st April, of consumption, Susan, wife of Dr. R.C. Swain of Weldon, N.C. and daughter of the late Thomas Burt, Esq., of Shelbyville, Tennessee. For several years, she had been a member of the Presbyterian Church and fell asleep gently in the faith of Jesus, though in the spring time of being a bride of a few months and surrounded by much that to her made life beautiful and full of promise, she freely gave up all. She knew in whom she had trusted and leaning on his arm, feared no evil while passing through the “dark valley and shadow of death”. Better, far better, that the beautiful morning cloud should melt away in the pure sunlight then float on through the long, long summer day to wear itself out in storms at night fall for: The loss of this cold world, the call of Heaven The briefer life, the earlier immortality And we know her spirit sings Where seraphs once have trod Veiling their faces ‘neath their wings Before the throne of God.

Died, on the 8th inst., of typhoid pneumonia, aged 30, Dugald Carmichael, a truly excellent young man. His sickness was so short that his death has taken his nearest neighbors by surprise. By this stroke of Divine Providence our community has been deprived of one of its best citizens, a noble patriot and a warm hearted philanthropist. He was an affectionate son and brother and has left a widowed mother, a sister, three brothers and a large circle of friends to mourn their loss, which is hoped to be his gain. J.G.S.

This announces to a large circle of relatives and friends the mortal end of a woman of singular excellence and virtue, and of exalted Christian character. For more than 30 years she has lived in this community and by the most exemplary devotion to the duties of life in all its relations, won the respect of and the ardent affection of a very large circle of friends. Her remains were followed to the grave, on the afternoon of Sunday the 19th, by as large a concourse, perhaps, as the writer ever saw at the burial of a private person. “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.” Fayetteville Observer, Monday, Feb. 10, 1863 Married, in this town on Wednesday, 5th inst., by Rev. Jas. McDaniel, Edward O. Dailey and Lucy E. marsh, daughter of Jas. F. Marsh, Esq., all of this place. Married, near Wadesboro’ on the 22nd ult., Dr. John A. McRae to Miss Lavinia H. Boggan.

After attending to his daily business, he went to bed as well as usual and it was not known that there was anything the matter with him until the next morning when he was discovered to be speechless. He died in that condition the night following, not having spoken in the time. A sure warning “Be ye also ready, for in such an hour as ye know not of, the Son of Man cometh”. We hope our loss is his gain. Died, in Harnett Co., on the 5th Jan., after an illness of seven days, John Darroch, Esq., aged 56 years, 11 months and 13 days.

From early manhood he was a member of the M.E. Church, for years a local minister, he lived a Christian and walked close to his profession. A kind father, an affectionate husband, a zealous Christian, has gone to the reward for which he labored. Fayetteville Observer, Monday, Feb. 24, 1862 Married, in this town on the 17th inst., by Robert Mitchell, Esq., Marshall Autrey to Miss Emiline Jones, all of this county. Died, in Greensborough, on the 10th inst., Miss Joanna Gretter, in her 22nd year, second daughter of Rev. John A. Gretter, deceased. Died, at Salisbury on the 5th Dec., 1861, Jas. J. McConnaughey, in the 31st year of his age. Died, in Wilmington on the 18th inst., Major John Walker, in the 73rd year of his age. In the death of Mr. Walker, the community has lost a venerable and highly respected citizen. He was born at Herwickson-Tweed, England on the 24th December, 1780. Upon the invitation of his uncle, Maj. John Walker, after whom he was named, and by whom he was adopted and educated, he came to Wilmington to reside on the 31st Oct., 1803. Imitating the spirit of independence which his uncle had illustrated by his firm support of the Revolution, he gave his services to his adopted country in the War of 1812, and the great struggle in which we are now engaged enlisted his decided sympathy. Early in life he was married to a most excellent lady, who with a large (illegible word) of children survive to mourn the loss of a kind and indulgent father and husband. While he was respected and esteemed by all, it was in the family circle that he was most prized. While he was contented and happy in the unambitious pursuits of a planter’s life, and the quiet pleasures of a delightful home, whatever public trust that was confided to him, was always discharged with fidelity and honest. Wilmington Journal Died, at his residence in Brunswick County, on the 13th inst., Thomas Pleasants Hall, aged 69. Mr. Hall was a relative of the Pleasants family, distinguished in the history of the family. Sadly afflicted by disease in almost every form for many years, Mr. Hall managed his estate with a skill, energy and judgment which commanded success. He was hospitable; had but few friends, but by those few he was warmly esteemed and loved. A skillful planter and intelligent gentleman, he was, best of all, an honest man.

Wiley and Miss Mittie, daughter of James M. Towles, Esq. Died, on Wednesday morning, 26th inst., at 5:30 am, Edgar James, youngest son of Poindexter and Elizabeth Shemwell, aged 19 months, 20 days.

During his residence of a few years in this place, he won the regard and esteem of a large circle of friends, who share the grief of his widowed mother at his loss.

Died, at Okolona, Miss., on the 19th ult., in consequence of a railroad accident near that place, William Ancrum Lord, son of the late William C. Lord of this town, in the 25th year of his age. It is not often that the death of an individual excites a more just and general sympathy than the case which we here record. Mr. Lord was, as a young man, possessed in a high degree of those qualities which add endearment to the ties of consanguinity and command love and admiration from all. Modest and retiring in his disposition he seemed to strangers distant and reserved but to his intimate friends and associates his character shone forth in all its comeliness and virtue, arrayed in the light of its own inherent goodness. When stricken by the hand of Providence, he occupied a post of great responsibility in the public service—and the manner in which he discharged its duties won for him the warmest commendations from all associated with him. The injuries of which he died were peculiarly severe and intensely painful, yet he bore his sufferings with unmurmuring submission to the will of God; and his constant recurrence to the lessons of religion learned in early youth warrants the belief that he now sleeps in Jesus, in the hope of a blessed resurrection.
