| An excellent source of information about those who served is the Civil War Soldiers and sailors System (CWSS):
Civil War Soldiers and Sailor System
Checking out your guys, I find two listings for Center Ledford, certainly the same guy.
1) PVT, Co. B, 6th NC Cavalry (AKA 65th State troops):
The 6th North Carolina Cavalry - (The 65th North Carolina State Troops)
2) PVT, Co. E, Walker's Battalion, Thomas Legion
Thomas' Legion: The 69th North Carolina Regiment
In the case of David Ledford, there are four listings (the last being for David A. Ledford).
1) PVT, Co.B, 6th NC Cavalry (AKA 65th State troops)
2) PVT, CO.E, Walkers Battalion, Thomas Legion
These are the same companies that Center Ledford served in.
3) PVT, Co. B, 7th Battalion, NC Cavalry (Consolidated into 6th NC Cav in 1863).
4) PVT, Co. E, 39th NC Infantry
These sites might provide more info on your guys.
RootsWeb: LEDFORD-L Re: Ledford brothers in Cherokee or Clay Co., NC
This poster says that David was killed in TN by: "renegade Confederate soldiers." He also has info on Center Ledford.
Re: Looking for Joseph Ledford : Wife Alsey Ball / N.C.
Family history. Your guys in Section 20.
Here is where your David Ledford lies today: (Sources conflict over whether David was killed in 1863 or 1864).
David Ledford, Jr (1833 - ) - Find A Grave Memorial
There are 16 Ledfords buried in that cemetery, including David's wife. Many of the others are certainly related.
