Name VariationHarman Balkcom3,4,5 
(Witness) NoteJohn Balkcum, Lemuel Balkcum; John Balkcum (b c1818), Harman Balkcum (b c1822), Lemuel Balkcum (b c1821) are named as grandchildren in the 1843 will of Hester Balkcum. Lemuel and Harman appear in the same clause of the will and are provided identical small amounts (one common Bible each, or money sufficient to purchase the same). Their appearance together may have been because of closeness of age or some other association but they were unlikely to have been brothers. The will also names another grandson, John Balkcum, with the same provision of one common bible.

Harman is proven as a son of Hester's daughter Nancy, per Nancy's 1853 will which names son Harman but does not mention Lemuel. I call Lemuel the son of unknown parents, one of whom was a child of Hester. I call John the son of a different unknown parent (another child of Hester) and not a brother of Lemuel or Harman because he appears in a separate clause of Hester's will. It's conceivable that Lemuel was a son of William Balkcom who appears as head of a household in the 1820 Sampson County census. However, John (born 1816) is likely not a son of William since in William's 1820 household there were no young males.

Balkcom" and "Josiah Johnson", sons of Mariah Balkcum Johnson, enlisted as Privates on the same day in the regiment drawn from the counties of Brunswick, Columbus, Cabarrus, Duplin, and Sampson.

James Lucien Balkcom identified himself as a farmer, age 21 at enlistment, and Josiah Johnson identified himself as age 19. Josiah would in fact have been age 17 or 18 at this time. In the 1860 census he was a 16 year old living with his parents, working as a farm laborer.

Their cousin William James Balkcom, son of Lemuel and Jemima Balkcom, enlisted in the same unit in November, 1862.

The Rootsweb reference describes the Regiment: "The 20th participated in various campaigns of the Army of Northern Virginia from the Seven Days' Battles (93 killed, 281 wounded, 6 mia) to Cold Harbor and later took part in the Appomattox operations. Other casualty reports include: 30 wounded in the Maryland Campaign, 3 wounded at Fredericksburg, 77 casualties at Chancellorsville and of the 372 engaged at Gettysburg, more than 65% were disabled. The unit surrendered with 4 officers and 71 men of which only 9 were armed."

James Lucien was captured June 15, 1863 at Stephenson's Depot, Virginia, (see historical marker, image attached). Cousin William James was wounded in the left arm at Gettysburg July 1-4, and captured. Josiah Johnson has not been located in Sampson or Duplin County after the war.13,14,15,16

Note*Lemuel Balkcum; John Balkcum (b c1818), Harman Balkcum (b c1822), Lemuel Balkcum (b c1821) are named as grandchildren in the 1843 will of Hester Balkcum. Lemuel and Harman appear in the same clause of the will and are provided identical small amounts (one common Bible each, or money sufficient to purchase the same). Their appearance together may have been because of closeness of age or some other association but they were unlikely to have been brothers. The will also names another grandson, John Balkcum, with the same provision of one common bible.

Harman is proven as a son of Hester's daughter Nancy, per Nancy's 1853 will which names son Harman but does not mention Lemuel. I call Lemuel the son of unknown parents, one of whom was a child of Hester. I call John the son of a different unknown parent (another child of Hester) and not a brother of Lemuel or Harman because he appears in a separate clause of Hester's will. It's conceivable that Lemuel was a son of William Balkcom who appears as head of a household in the 1820 Sampson County census. However, John (born 1816) is likely not a son of William since in William's 1820 household there were no young males.

John Balkcum sold land to Hester Balkcum for $1070.

It's not clear if this is the land Hester originally received on the death of her husband John Balkcom in 1803, and if so how grandson John Balkcum came into possession.
