31st Regiment of North Carolina Militia record book

31st Regiment of North Carolina Militia record book
Records involve the Cypress Creek Company of 31st Regiment of N.C. Militia which consisted mostly of Duplin County, North Carolina men. The records were kept by Captain Rhaford Lanier (1813-1883). The records are mainly from 1840-1845 and 1861-1865 which include muster rolls as well as pay for the soldiers and their families. The unit was mainly used for mustering men who were then split up between larger units during the civil war. Many of the men were sent to other North Carolina military units such as the 2nd and 3rd infantry regiments. Brief personal notes from the late 1870's and early 1880's are also present. These notes include comments that range from family matters and church business to the production of turpentine in the area.
