The item has a tag line stating that Alphonse P. Repiton, Jr., served in the Army with his half-brother John C. McHenry, however, this is not the correct name for John.  It should read John C. McIlhenny.  John was the son of Sarah Cowan and her first husband, John K. McIlhenny of Wilmington, NC.  And therefore would be the half-brother of Alphonse Repiton, Jr..  John C. McIlhenny is listed in the Roster of North Carolina Troops, 1861-65 as is Alphonse Paul Repiton, Jr., as enlistments in the same company. Also, the troop enlistment information is stated in the obituary of John C. McIlhenny.
