I have two books on the Civil War in Western North Carolina. I too will see what I can find. My Great grandfather, Patrick Henry Henley, was a Corporal in the 2nd North Carolina Union until it was combine with the 1st N.C. Union in Dec. 1864 where he became a Sergeant.

Subject: [NCUV] Lieutenant William W. Wells
I am seeking information about the role that Lieutenant William W. Wells
played in the organization of the 2nd North Carolina (Union) Volunteers.ion
s was a New Yorker by birth but served in North Carolina as a member
of the 58th Pennsylvania Volunteers. He was detailed to the staff of
Colonel Claassen of the 132nd New York in the summer of 1863 and was
killed at Batchelder's Creek in April 1864.
I have some documents that implicate Wells in the establishment of the
2nd North Carolina (Union), but I would like to hear from anyone who can
help me to better understand his role in that organization, as he does
not appear to have been mustered into it.
