Jim Scholl's Page


I have always been interested in the Civil War.

My g-g-grandfather, Andrew J Pennigton, served with the 34th N.C. Infantry Reg. 

(Tyrell County)

My other g-g-grandfather, Francis V Scholl, served in the 46th N.C. Infantry Regiment. (Scotland County)

I love writing and I am trying to find information in the local defense forces. I spent sometime in Bertie and Tyrell Counties researching geneology.

We just opened a local museum in Camden County. It was a hotbed of Partisan Ranger and Guerrilla activity. Camden even had a Union company raised (1st NC Regt. Co. D). I'm researching these groups as we speak. (Doesn't everyone stay up until 3:25 a.m.  looking through Civil War records? Four of the Partisan Ranger companies ended up in the 68th NC Regiment for service within North Carolina. I stopped adding content to this site when the new management for NING was talking about raising the rates. Check out my other sites listed in the lower left of the main page. I've done a lot of work on the Battle of South Mills over the summer..
