Tobias Beaver – Confederate States of America Army

Date Icon Publish Date

I see you are looking for info on several soldiers in the 57th North Carolina Regiment (Confederate) who are buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

I have a book published by the North Carolina Division of Archives and History covering the 57th, 58th, 60th & 61th regiments that includes the roster of members including information. For example you are looking for info on Tobias Beaver of Company C (in which two of my Great-graet Grandfathers served).

Here is the information on Tobias from this book: “Resided in Rowan County and was by occupation an overseer prior to enlisting in Rowan County at age 29, July 4, 1862, for the war.

“Hosptalized in Richmond Virginia, October 16, 1862, with typhoid fever. Furloughed for thirty days on or about December 24, 1862.
