Nicholas Alexander Whisenaunt

Nicholas Alexander Whisenaunt was born about 1840 in Georgia. His father was Henry, born about 1814 in North Carolina, and Rebecca, born about 1824 in North Carolina.

The 1850 Murray County Census indicated that a son, Derrick, age 12, had been born in NC. The couple's next son, Alexander, was born about 1840 in Georgia, indicating that the family had come to Georgia around 1839.

That Census also listed three other children: Mary A., age 7; Elizabeth, age 3, and C. C. Whisenaunt, age 1. The place of birth for these three was listed as Georgia.

On January 3, 1862, Nicholas Alexander Whisenaunt enlisted as a Private in Company B, 10th Regiment, Georgia State Troops. He was mustered out in May 1862. He then enlisted as a Private in Company A, 34th Regiment Georgia Infantry on May 15, 1862. One month later, on June 15, 1862, he died of disease at Vicksburg, Mississippi.
