Thank you, that helps a lot.

He was also the Constructing Engineer for the Raleigh & Gaston RR in 1836 and was their Superintendent upon completion till shortly after 1840.

During the CW he was the lead member on a commission that decided which railroads had to be pulled up to provide iron for the other railroads. He then determined which roads got how much iron. I think he was living just north of Richmond when the war started.
