Linzy Tucker Davis - Private   
I know VERY little about Linzy (alternate spellings: Linzie, Lindsey), who is my 3x great grandfather, and have had little luck finding information. I know he was in the 42nd Infantry from the civil war index, there it spells his name 'Lindsey.' I know sometime around 1866 he must have stopped supporting the confederate side because he married Sarah Sally Morriss. Linzy died in Webster County, Missouri in 1926 and is buried in Seymour, Missouri. I have not been able to identify his parents (though I have reason to believe his father might have been named Dave) and would very much like to learn more about him - there are family rumors that he fled North Carolina under suspicion for an accidental murder. If anyone can provide more information, please feel free to contact me.

Franklin Cauble - Private   
NOTICE: THE NATIONAL CEMETERY ADMINISTRATION, WOODLAWN NATIONAL CEMETERY, ELMIRA, NEW YORK PLACED THE CORRECT HEADSTONE AT THE GRAVE OF PVT. FRANKLIN CAUBLE ON 30 OCT 2014, THIS WAS 150 YEARS AND 2 DAYS AFTER PVT. CAUBLE DIED ON 28 OCT 1864. MANY THANKS GO TO RAY FINGER OF THE STAR - GAZETTE NEWSPAPER IN ELMIRA, NY FOR RUNNING A SERIES OF ARTICLES TELLING THE STORY OF PVT. FRANKLIN CAUBLE BEING BURIED UNDER THE INCORRECT NAME OF FRANKLIN COOPER. IF IT HAD NOT BEEN FOR THE SUPPORT AND NEWS ARTICLES BY RAY FINGER, THIS MISTAKE WOULD HAVE PROBABLY NEVER BEEN CORRECTED BY THE VETERANS ADMINISTRATION. RAY FINGER'S NEW ARTICLES WENT VIRAL ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND THERE WAS AN OUTCRY AGAINST THE VA FOR NOT MAKING THIS CORRECTION. AFTER 150 YEARS, PVT. FRANKLIN CAUBLE, CO C, 42nd NC, AND MY GREAT GREAT GRANDFATHER IS FINALLY PROPERLY IDENTIFIED. MANY THANKS ALSO GO TO MARTY CHALK, PRESIDENT OF FRIENDS OF THE ELMIRA CIVIL WAR PRISON CAMP ASSOCIATION IN ELMIRA, NEW YORK FOR HIS SUPPORT IN HELPING TO GET PVT. FRANKLIN CAUBLE'S NEW HEADSTONE INSTALLED BY THE NATIONAL CEMETERY ADMINISTRATION.



Son of Joseph Cauble and Nancy Hudson. Born abt. 1825 in Rowan County, NC. Franklin was living in Albemarle, Stanly County, NC with his mother and siblings when he enlisted in Co C in Albemarle, NC on 28 Feb. 1863. Company C was mustered in at Salisbury, NC. Prior to enlisting, Franklin earned his living as a stage coach driver.

After military training in Salisbury, NC, Co C served for a period of time as guards at the prison for Union soldiers in Salisbury, Rowan County, NC.


Franklin was captured 3 Jun. 1864 at Cold Harbor, he was sent to Point Lookout, Md. and then transferred to Elmira, NY. The prisoner transfer from Point Lookout to Elmira consisted of 833 men. They left Point Lookout on 12 July by the steam ship 'Crescent', went to Jersey City, NJ arriving 15 July at 4 AM. There they boarded a train for Elmira, NY. At 3 PM near Shohola, Pa., the prison train crashed head on with a coal train in a sharp blind curve. There was a heavy loss of prisoners and Union guards. This train wreck is known as 'The Great Shohola Train Wreck'. The remaining prisoners arrived Elmira, NY around 9:30 PM on Saturday evening 16 July 1864. Official Union records recorded and documented the men into the Elmira Prison on Sunday 17 July 1864. He died in Elmira Prison 28 Oct. 1864. Franklin is buried in Woodlawn National Cemetery, Confederate section in grave #718.


Franklin was mistakenly buried under the name of Franklin Cooper who was also in Co C, 42nd NC, and also from Albemarle, Stanly County, NC. Both Franklin Cauble and Franklin Cooper enlisted in Co C at the same time and both were captured at Cold Harbor at the same time.

Franklin Cooper did not die in the Elmira Prison but was paroled and returned to Stanly County NC. Franklin Cooper died 2, Oct. 1924, and is buried at Silver Springs Baptist Church Cemetery, Aquadale, Stanly County, North Carolina.

Franklin Cooper has a headstone at grave #718 in the Woodlawn National Cemetery, Elmira, NY. However, Pvt.

Cooper both enlisted in Co C at the same time in Albermarle, Stanly County, NC. They were both captured the same day at Cold Harbor, were both sent to Point Lookout, MD., and were both transferred to Elimar, NY. Pvt. Franklin Cauble died in Elmira, NY and Pvt.

I've only got sketchy information, but what I have says Goodwin (maybe Goodin) enlisted with his son, John Hinson, out of Stanly County, NC in 1862 for the $50 bounty. He was 47 and had 7 children. While the regiment was in Wilmington, he tried to desert to get home to a sick wife and the remainding children. He was captured and sentenced to execution. John fixed his last meal. He made his own coffin and rode out to his execution sitting on the coffin in the back of a wagon. It took two volleys to complete the sentence.
