Company G, 16th Regiment of NC Troops

This unit was raised and enlisted in Rutherford County on 9 May 1861. 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.
