Company C, 15th Regiment of NC Troops

The company functioned as part of the regiment for the entirety of the war and its exploits are reported as part of the regimental history. More detailed information on each of these soldiers can be found in North Carolina Troops 1861-1865 A Roster, Volume X, Infantry, compiled by Weymouth T Jordan, Jr with Unit Histories by Louis H Manarin. All genealogists owe a debt of gratitude to these gentlemen for their wonderful tribute to our ancestors.

MCINTYRE, Martin McBride Contact another researcher...
In both the infantry records and in earlier census records, the name was spelled "McEntire", but the family actually spelled it McIntyre, and still does so today. He enlisted April 27, 1861 from Cleveland County. Martin appeared on the company muster roll on June 2, 1861. He was wounded on South Mountain at Crampton's Pass (also known as Crampton's Gap) on September 14, 1862. His wounds were to the thigh and listed as severe. He was paroled, sent to Petersburg, then furloughed to North Carolina. When he was recovered enough to return to duty he was detailed on the North Carolina Central Railroad. He was ultimately returned to duty with the unit and was once again captured, this time at Hatcher's Run (outside Petersburg, Virginia) on April 2, 1865. He took the oath of allegiance on June 29, 1865 and was released. On that card, at the bottom, his name appears as Martin M. McIntyre.
Martin relocated to Texas after the war c1869 and married Nita Paralee Gregory. Their home was in Upshur County, Texas near Lafayette. Martin filed a pension application in 1907 which was disapproved. His affiants were his brother M.O. McIntyre and an A. R. Putnam, both of Cleveland County, North Carolina.
