Ancestor Info
Name: George Henry GardinRank: Captain Company: B

Captain George H. Gardin, a prominent citizen and Confederate soldier of McDowell county, of which he is a native, was born in 1843, the son of Henry Gardin. He enlisted in the Confederate service on May 1, 1861, as a private in Company B, Twenty-second regiment, North Carolina troops. From the ranks he gradually rose by promotion, on account of gallant and faithful service, until in the fall of 1862 he became captain of his company, the rank in which he served until the surrender of the army of Northern Virginia. During 1861 he served at Evansville, on the Potomac river; in the spring of 1862 was on duty at Yorktown, and after the retreat of Magruder participated in the battle of Seven Pines. During the campaign before Richmond under General Lee, in June, 1862, he was captured at Fair Oaks and thence carried to Washington city, where he was held as a prisoner for six weeks. After being exchanged he rejoined his company at Winchester in the Shenandoah valley and next met the enemy at Fredericksburg. He fought with Jackson at Chancellorsville, being not far from the general at the time he was wounded, and at Gettysburg participated in the gallant charges of his regiment on the first and third days of the battle. During the bloody struggles of the Wilderness, Spottsylvania Court House and Cold Harbor, he was identified with the gallant record of General Scales' North Carolina brigade. He served on the Petersburg lines throughout the fall and winter of 1864, and in the spring of 1865 participated in the battle of Five Forks and the skirmishes of the retreat to Appomattox, where he was paroled. Upon his return to North Carolina he engaged in farming, which is still his occupation. He has had a prominent official career in the county, serving, from 1874, two years as treasurer; in 1881 as representative in the legislature; in the same office again in 1885, and from 1890 to 1897 as sheriff of the county. He was married in 1866 to Ellen F., daughter of Alexander Tate. She died in 1894, leaving seven children: Anna Laura, wife of G. W. Connally; Martha H., wife of Maj. A. Connally; Alice, wife of George C. Connally; Jennie V., wife of George Carson; Rebecca, wife of Dr. J. O. Simmons; Etta and Maude. Source: Confederate Military History Vol. V p. 498
