Pvt Thomas Ruffin Gentry served with the 35th NC Infantry from its formation at Camp Mangum, having enlisted in Company E from Person County. He met his end during the Battle of Plymouth. According to his commander 'He was shot through the body with grapeshot while assaulting the breastworks on the second day of battle.'
