Combany B, 37th N. Carolina Infantry
The information on Thomas Pipes is sketchy. He is one of three sons of Hiram Pipes and Elizabeth Allison/Ellison who were in the Civil War, The other two being John Pipes and Jesse Pipes.
Thomas was born about 1819 in Wilkes County, the oldest son of 10 children. His records show that he died in Kinston, N. Carolina on 22 April 1862 while serving with the 37th. I am attempting to locate more of his records to clarify his role.
The 37th has a long list of battle engagements, including:
New Bern, N. Carolina in March of 1862 Hanover Court House, Virginia in May and June of 1862, Gaines' Mill and Frazier's farm, Virginia in June of 1862, Second Manassas, Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg, Chansellorsville, Gettysburg, Petersburg, and the 37th was present at Appomattox Court House in April of 1865 for the end of the conflict.
