Greetings! I am currently doing research on the 58th North Carolina Troops, a Confederate regiment from western North Carolina that served in the Army of Tennessee during the War Between the States (Civil War). I am looking for information on these men, including their dates of birth and death, place of burial, or copies of photographs, letters, diaries, or family stories. This information will be used in a book on the 58th North Carolina Troops once I am done. The book will be published by McFarland and Company, of Jefferson, North Carolina.

The men I am seeking information on are as follows:

Name                            Rank              Co.       Place of Enlist.       Date of Birth       Date of DeathPlace of Burial

Lusk, Elkana                     Pvt.              D       Watauga       19 Jan. 1835       26 Nov. 1912       Pitman Cem., Avery Co.

I do have copies of their service records that I can email if you are interested. If you do not have any information, but would like to be placed on a mailing list for updates on the book, please drop me a line.

Thanks in advance for all the help. I did this same type of posting when working on my book on the 37th North Carolina Troops, and the outpouring of information was overwhelming.

Kindest Regards,
