CATAWBA COUNTY REGIMENTS

     

Company I, 49th REGIMENT, N.C. TROOPS

This company, known as the "Catawba Marksmen," was raised in Catawba County and enlisted in Catawba County on March 19, 1862. It was mustered into state service at Camp Mangum, near Raleigh, on April 16, 1862, and assigned to the 49th Regiment N.C. Troops as Company I. After joining the regiment the company functioned as a part of the regiment, and its history for the remainder of the war is reported as a part of the regimental history.
The information contained in the following roster was compiled primarily from a company muster-in and descriptive roll dated April 16, 1862, and from company muster rolls for November 1, 1862-December 31, 1863, and March l-August 31, 1864. No company muster rolls were located for May l-October 31, 1862; January I-February 29, 1864; or for the period after August 31, 1864. Valuable information was obtained from primary records such as the North Carolina adjutant general's Roll of Honor, discharge certificates, medical records, prisoner of war records, The War of the Rebellion: A Compilation of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, militia records, newspaper casualty lists and obituaries, Confederate pension applications filed with the state of North Carolina, and the 1860 federal census of North Carolina. Secondary sources such as postwar rosters and histories, cemetery records, the Confederate Veteran, published genealogies, and records of the United Daughters of the Confederacy also provided useful information.
