Phillip E. Arney was born to R. Henry and Elizabeth Carpenter Arney in Catawba County, North Carolina, in January of 1843. Phillip worked as a farmer during non-war time. At age 19 Phillip enlisted in Co. K, N.C. 46th Infantry Regiment on March 13, 1862. This company was known as the “Catawba Braves.” Phillip had no known injuries and was present and accounted for when he surrendered at Appomattox Court House, Virginia, on April 9, 1865.
