Those Carpenters answered the call
Jonas Carpenter, brother to David and Henry, was born to Jonathan and Barbara Kistler Carpenter in Lincoln County, North Carolina on June 23, 1820. Jonas enlisted in Co. D, 1st N.C. Infantry Regiment as a Confederate private. It is noted that this regiment fought on June 10, 1861 at both Yorktown and Bethel,Virginia. These three gentlemen were brothers to my great-great-grandmother, Elizabeth Carpenter Arney.
