Not sure what you mean by a mistake being made. If you are speaking of him being from Pittsylvania co rather than Patrick, then its possible the 10th heavy artillery was based out of Patrick in which case he went there to enlist. It is not usual to see men from one county enlisting in another or even another state. I have NC relatives chose to enlist in VA for reasons known only to them.
