My great-great-great-grandfather was Ransom McIntyre. Ransom was on my mother’s side of the family and was originally from the Duncans Creek area of Rutherford County, North Carolina. During the Civil War, Ransom served the Confederacy, belonging to the “Cleveland Marksmen” of Company I, 38th Infantry (North Carolina). On Nov. 21, 1861, he enlisted at Cleveland County and fought during multiple battles before being mustered out on Dec. 7, 1862. According to his compiled military record, Ransom was “discharged due to overage,” meaning that he was discharged because he was over thirty-five years old (North Carolina Troops 1861-65, A Roster). His photograph is at right. (Click on image to enlarge.)
