Birth: 1840, USA
Death: May 13, 1899
Union County
North Carolina, USA

Fitzgerald served in the War Between the States (Civil War) mustering in as a Corporal. Though he resided in Davidson County he enlisted in Cabarrus County, NC with the "Cabarrus Rangers" on June 15, 1861. Co. F, 9th Regiment (1st Regiment N. C. Cavalry). This information comes from his military service record and is also recorded in the North Carolina Troops Vol. II by the N. C. State Archives. When he resigned on Dec. 7, 1864 after accidentally shooting himself in the foot on Sept. 29 (1864) he was a 2nd Lieutenant. Where the Colonel designation comes from is not known at this time unless he perhaps served with the local state militia (forerunner of the National Guard I believe). His mother was the former Nancy Hayden, therefore the extra "H" in his name may very well be for 'Hayden'. Mother's name comes from his brother, John Burgess Fitzgerald's biography as found in "Civil War Roster of Davidson County, North Carolina..." by Christopher Watford and published in 2001(Bio #478, page 78) Afer the war, Fitzgerald married Ellen Houston Armfield, widow of David Franklin Armfield, who was killed in action at Chamberlain Run, VA on March 31, 1865. (The Heritage of Union County, NC, Vol. II, page 76) He was a Mason and a banker (People's Bank) in Monroe, NC.
