Civil War Retrospective: The Whitehurst twins

2011-04-21 - Photo by Sharon Whitehurst.
The men in the old photo are John Henry Whitehurst,left and James Berry Whitehurst, twins, from Goldsboro, Pitt Co., NC, who enlisted to fight for the CSA. My husband Jim is also an identical twin and is named for James Berry Whitehurst's grandson and great grandson. The Whitehursts were in the Confederate cavalry. My own great, great grandfather, Almeron Davis was a 39 year old farmer in the Adirondack town of Hague, NY when he enlisted in the 5th Cavalry, Company H, to fight for the Union. He was captured at Chantilly, VA, and was a Confederate prisoner for a while before being exchanged for Confederate Prisoners, who, like he, were deemed no longer fit for war. -Sharon Whitehurst, Gradyville, Adair Co., KY.
