8th Battalion — N. C. Partisan Rangers (Nethercutt’s company)
Enlisted on May 15, 1862 in Trenton (Jones county) with John H. Nethercutt as captain, the company had already been mustered into Confederate States service as of April 29, 1862.. Nethercutt had been a sheriff of Jones County before the war and was intimately familiar with the localities, terrain, and prominent citizens of the county. Nethercutt remained as captain of the company until the formal organization of battalion in August, 1862, whereupon he was promoted to Major of the battalion. Christopher D. Foy (also of Jones county) had been previously 2nd Lieutenant and was named captain of the company upon Nethercutt’s promotion, but he was soon invalided for active duty by a broken leg suffered in the service. Upon Captain Foy’s discharge, Willis Raspberry (who had been serving as Adjutant of the battalion) was promoted to captain of the company. The company was designated Company F, 66th North Carolina Troops upon the organization of that unit in October, 1863.
