Military*9 May 1861James Lucien Balkcum; CSA, North Carolina Enlisted F Co. 20th Inf Reg. NC, Sampson County, North Carolina, USA; Half brothers "James L. 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.3,4,5,6

William Johnson Jr.1

#2393, b. circa 1815
ChartsDescendants of Hester Balkcom
Last Edited23 Oct 2018
Name VariationWill Johnson Jr. 
Birth*circa 1815Sampson County, North Carolina, USA1 
Marriage*say 1840Mariah Balkcum; Sampson County, North Carolina, USA; probably Mariah Balkcum, dau of Hester Balkcum, date estimated based on daughter Mary Ellen's birth.1 
(Neighbor) Comment*Southern District, Sampson County, North Carolina, USA; Many Johnson families were neighbors in the 1850 census, including Will Johnson Jr. and Will Johnson Sr. Other Johnsons living nearby were Nathan Johnson Sr age 68 (possibly brother of Will Johnson Sr), Allen age 46, William age 50, Bezzell age 38, George age 50, Joseph age 25, William age 27, Celia age 30 (note Will Johnson Jr and Mariah Balkcum had a daughter age 2 named Celia). I suspect that these were all siblings or first cousins, children of either Will Johnson Sr. or Nathan Johnson Sr.
Also of interest nearby: Noma Merritt age 50, Ana Merritt age 50, Needham Merritt age 45, William Murphy age 43, Lewis Bowen age 63, and Lemuel Balkcom age 29, first cousin of Mariah (Balkcum) Johnson.
Several were identified as Coopers by trade, including Will Johnson Jr., Samuel Johnson, and Daniel Bowen.
