I have a few ancestors who fought for the 12th NC. Thomas Jefferson Pitchford Jr. (Co. F & K) and his brother Sterling Pitchford (Co. F). T.J. is my 2x Great Grandfather. His brother Sterling was killed at Cold Harbor early in the war. There was another brother who joined and was discharged early because of health. I have a picture of all the brothers (including 2 who fought for a Mississippi Artillery unit) along with their father Dr. Thomas Jefferson Pitchford Sr. who was also a NC state legislator during the civil War.
