That's quite a line of service in your family. I'm in Virginia now (east of Richmond on hallowed ground) but all of my family is from North Carolina. My GG Grandfather, Jordan Livingston is from my mother's side. He was in the 11th NC. Jordan was with Heth's Division, Pettigrew's Brigade at Gettysburg and was wounded on July 1st. He was left in the hands of the enemy but made his way back through hospitals in Charlottesville and Richmond and even back home to Wilkes County, NC before returning to duty in '64. He was taken POW in a hospital in Richmond on 3 April 1865. No further info was known on him until recently my wife found him in California on an 1880 census with an uncle that moved out there for the gold rush. I have a Jessee Mcgee (my mother's maiden name) that inlisted at age 44 in the 29th NC. He made it til the end and was paroled in Chattanooga. And in the 34th NC which mustered in at High Point, NC (where all of my family was and still are located) I've got at least ten "cousins/uncles", Saunders, Miller, Mcgee, and Walker. From privates to a lt. colonel. My wife is the big researcher in the family. We have helped quite a few people trace their ancestry. It's amazing how after you find that first little bit of info that from then on it becomes an avalanche. I really enjoy your posts on all of the boards. Keep up the good work.
