  • Notes 
    • "North Carolina Troops", Vol. V:

      Thomas A. Hennessee, Pvt., Co. "G", 1st Regiment, N.C. Troops. Enlisted Burke County, April 25, 1861 through November 13, 1861, Age 21. Member of the "Burke Rifles". Family records indicate he was killed during the war.

      Nita Hennessee Shepherd;

      "T.A. Hennessee listed on plaque outside of the Burke County Courthouse as a confederate soldier under Col. J.C.S. McDowell, CM, Sept. 1862. Also, Thomas A. Hennessee, Pvt., Co. "G". 1st regiment, NC Troops. Present and accounted for until mustered out 11/12/1861. Information furnished by Carl Hennessee, Sept., 1986. It would appear that this information is incorrect if he re-enlisted and was killed."

      Voter records in the office of "Clerke of the Superior Court of Burke County in the State of North Carolina on the 25th July 1861" lists "M. S. Hennessee and Thos. Hennessee". The dais votes being cast by the Members of Company G of the 1st Regiment of North Carolina Volunteers. It appears that these two are brothers who served and died together during the Civil War...DAH.
