Historian Michael C. Hardy's quest to understand the Confederate army, from the boots up. (Formerly Looking for North Carolina's Civil War)
My name is Vaughn S Brubaker. My grandfather is Ruffin V Collie. He is a Civil War Vet and is burried in Franklin County in the cemetary at Cypress Chapel Baptist Church. I don't know if this info is useful to anyone, but there it is.
I am Carl Vann Rich. Ruffin Van Collie was my great grandfather. He lived to be 107 years old. I am 70 years old and he died when I was 12 years old. I often visited at his home and remember the birthday events after world war II. I know he often attended the war reunions. My father was Ruffin Van Rich. We lived on farms about 5 miles apart.
