Notes for John Pomfret Blackwell Jr.
John Pomfret Blackwell enlisted in the Confederate Army at the age of 16. This occurred 2 Jun 1864 at Yellow Tavern, Virginia. He was paid $35 on this date for the use of his own horse. He was a Private in Co. E of the 9th North Carolina Troops (1st Cavalry). He carried a Bible with him into battle. Inside he had written, "J.P. Blackwell. If I should be killed, will some kind friend write and let my Mother know my fate? Her address is Townsville. The name, Mrs. M. Blackwell, Granville Co., North Carolina." (Mrs. Mary Ann Amy Webb Blackwell).

John Blackwell was discharged from General Hospital No. 3, Goldsboro, North Carolina on 26 Sept 1864, "to return to duty and ordered to report at or near Petersburg, Virginia." The last known service record is a Company Muster Roll for the months of November and December, 1864. He survived the war and returned to North Carolina.

He had a photograph taken of himself and his new bride, Sallie. He appeared to be of medium height with brown hair and dark eyes. His square face and moustache made him look quite handsome in his youth, and a lot like President Teddy Roosevelt in his later years.

John's home in Bullock was called "Valley Home." It was situated about 3/4 of a mile north of Marrow's Chapel where he and his family attended services. He is buried in the Blackwell plot of the Cemetery which is surrounded by a stone wall. John died of Bright's Disease, an ailment of the liver. !MARRIAGE:WARREN CO ON MICROFILM, LDS SLC LIB !BIRTH:1880 CENSUS GRANVILLE
