Finding Lenoir County Civil War Soldier Records

Finding Lenoir County Civil War Soldier Records

Surnames: Curtis Tindal, or Tindall
I recently found out my third great grandfather was Killed August 29th, 1861 in the battle at Ft. Hatteras. I am wanting to find out some geneoligical information on him because I don't know his father and mother were, although I have a pretty good speculation. I have found a copy of his wifes widow pension but I'm wanting to know where I can locate other information on him and what I can hope to typically find. I'm looking for something that might show who his mother and father are. I've sent a request to National Archives but not sure that will turn up anything. and I've also contacted the museum up at Cape Hatteras about it because I know they have some Civil war historians up there.

If your soldier died after 1913 there should be a death certificate for him and his parents name should be on that, that is how we found our link. Good Luck

I'm finding out he joined the Civil war on June 1961 and was killed August 29th of 1961 in Hatteras. I've found his service record cards and also a copy of his widow's pension but I'm not finding anything that goes beoynd this and I haven't been able to link him with his parents. Which I am greatful I've been able to find what I have because myself, Father, and grandfather was not aware of him even joining or getting killed in the war so this is a great find for us, and sad at same time, due to the fact that my 2nd Great Grandfather lost his life when he was 1 years old.

I think on this last post you meant Aug. 29, 1861
What is the surname, and was he a Confederate or Union? Do you know a Unit #.
I'll help if I can or maybe with the above information, someone in the group could assist you more

He was in the 40th Infantry I've located his Service Records and also his wifes Widow's pension but I haven't had any luck finding information on his parents at all. Looks Like he joined in June of 1861 and was killed in august of 1861 at the Battle of Ft. Hatteras. Kinda bugging me because this is the Line I get my Surname from and really was hoping to get farther back than this. His name was Curtis Tindal and wifes name is Margeret Ann Tindal and is known as Peggie in some Census's and on Some of the Widow's information.

John Tindale could deffinatly be possibly related but the dates aren't matching up to be my Curtis's father. the information I have show's Margeret Being 49 When she applied for his widow's pension in 1865 I'm thing my Curtis was born appx 1817. I've seen some people having his Father as James Tindal b.1780 but I haven't been able to find a Census that link's them together or anything that links James to Curtis.

My GGGF was Curtis's Son he was born in 1860, His name was Jeff Curtis I've got the documention all the way back to him but nothing behind him. I can find him and Margeret in the 1860 Census and from the 1870 and on he is gone only Margeret "Peggie" Ann Tindal and the children, Jefferson Curtis, and Caty. I have also found somepaper work of where curtis worked some for Issac stroud and peggy later married William Isler Taylor later on after 1900 which he was one of Issac Stroud's son.
