Confederate Veteran mag., dated January, 1925, page 5 p.
CONFEDERATE TWINS OF NORTH CAROLINA
Two of the surviving Confederate veterans of Lee Co, N.C. are THOMAS and ATLAS GROSS, twin brothers, now 78 years old. They joined in the Confederate army at the age of 17 and served in Company H, of the Junior Reserves , or 70th N.C. Reg., under Maj. Walter Clark. They went through the war and took part in the battle of Bentonville, N.C., the last hard battle fought in that State.
After the war closed these brothers, whose bravery was tested at the front like many other gallant survivors of that bloody struggle, went about the task of building up the devasted South with as much enthusiasm and heroism as they displayed in battle. They settled down to farming and made a success in life. THOMAS is still actively engaged in farming. Both brothers married happily and have reared six children each, 4 girls and 2 boys.
