I am looking for connections to my gg-grandfather, Gidion (or Gideon) Anderson Capps. His Civil War pension file includes mention of a brother, Francis D. Capps, and sister, Ann Maria (Capps) Douglass, both of whom were living in or near Wilmington, North Carolina in 1896.
Gidion was born 10 Jan 1842 in Wilmington, North Carolina. He enlisted in Company E of the North Carolina 10th Light Infantry in May 1861. He deserted in 1863, and enlisted in the Union Navy in New York 7 Nov 1863 under the assumed name, John W. Wilson.
Both Francis D. Capps and Ann Maria (Capps) Douglass were born in 1847, and may have been twins.
Does anyone have information on Gidion, Francis & Ann Maria, particularly their parents' names? Do they show up on the Wilmington, NC census for 1850?
Thanks for any help possible.
