The Son of Livingstone

Record #:
David Livingstone, the famous African explorer, scientist, and missionary for whom North Carolina's Livingstone College is named, had a son named Robert. Robert was a wanderer and came to the United States during the Civil War and joined the Union Army. Not wanting to trade on his father's name and fame, he enlisted under the name Robert Vincent. He was wounded, captured, and sent to the state's Salisbury Prison. He died there in 1864 at age nineteen and is buried in an unmarked grave.
