Comments:
Jesse Brooks is tied to William Brooks in Plymouth, Washington County and I was looking for another documentational tie to my family outside of the U.S. Census that shows the connection. Thank you for your hard work because it gave me exactly what I needed. It also tied the Boyd and Sutton families together out of Bertie, Beaufort, Martin, Washington, and Hyde Counties together. Thank you again

Ancestor Henry Ward (African American
Unit 14th Reg. USCT, Heavy Artillery
Birth - Death 1839 - 1940
Comments:
Hello:

I have located a burial site of an African American male, "Henry Ward," who died at the age of 101, in 1940. I have traced the 1870s census and verified he lived in Onslow County, Jacksonville, North Carolina (White Oak area). I need to verify that this Henry Ward is the same Henry Ward who I located. If so, he is a Civil War Veteran (Union Army), unrecognized.

A Henry Ward, from Onslow County, fought with the 14th Regiment Heavy Artillery (c.1864).

I believe the two are the one and the same.

Anyone can assist me, I would appriciate it. Anyone can call me at 1-910-382-6435 (serious calls only please).

With respect,

Jack Robinson, M.A.

Along with eight other volunteer researchers, we set up the NC/USCT web site a few years ago to transcribe the data from the microfilm of ther Regimental Descriptive Books which we purchased from the National Archives in Washington, DC. It has been a long and tedious chore to transcribe these records via microfilm reader and much remains to be done. We are now down to only three volunteers, We are always grateful for any assistance you may offer. We hope that the results will contribute greatly to Black history and genealogy.
