Pvt. Company E, 38th North Carolina Infantry
Jesse Pipes was born December 31, 1832, the youngest son of 10 children of Hiram Pipes and Elizabeth Allison/Ellison. He married Julia Triplet on October 9th, 1856 in Wilkes County, N. Carolina They had 4 children, two before the war and two more well after. Jesse was conscripted into the Confederate Army in Wilkes County on February 14, 1863, from a place called Camp Holmes and assigned to Company E of the 38th N. Carolina Infantry. He was reported by Confederate military records to have deserted to the enemy during the battle of Chancellorsville. He was transported to Washington D.C. and later took the oath of allegiance. I am not sure if he was held captive or was exchanged.
Jesse lived in N. Carolina until 1887 when he removed with some of his children to Idaho, where he passed away in October of 1914.
