From the Friends of Fort Fisher Looking for Descendants!

Friends of Fort Fisher

The Friends of Fort Fisher are gathering contact information for any descendants of soldiers involved in the building of Fort Fisher or any of the other forts in the Cape Fear area.

They would also like to find descendants of men who fought in the battles for Fort Fisher, Fort Holmes, Fort Caswell, Fort Johnston, and Fort Anderson, as well as blockade runner captains, crew and pilots, basically anyone who was involved in the Wilmington Campaign.

Visit their website at: for links to projects and events including the 150th Battle reenactment and the descendants reunion in January 2015.

Contact John Golden at for more information.
