BATSON

Submitted by: Mollie Morrow
William Asbury Batson - b. November 21, 1841 in Greenville County, S.C., son of Joseph Batson and Mary Elizabeth Carolina Bishop. (All of my Batson line came from there.)

In 1861 he enlisted in the Confederate Army in a Cavalry unit that failed to organize. Then he enlisted in Company B, 64 North Carolina Infantry on July 12, 1862 (after his marriage in April to Margaret Serepta Heatherly) in Hendersonville, N.C. and was sent to Knoxville, TN. He was elected Lieutenant at Cumberland Gap, TN in 1863. On the 9th day of October, 1863 he was captured at Cumberland Gap by General Burnsides. He was taken to Johnson's Island, Ohio and kept there until March 1864. Then he was sent to Point Lookout, MD for exchange and remained there for about 4 months when he was sent to Fort Delaware and kept in prison until June 12, 1865. He was released by taking the Oath of Allegiance and returned to Georgia where his father and his wife lived. The source of this information is from a paper that William Asbury wrote which he called "Statement of the Life of W. A. Batson" dated September 1908, less than a year and a half before he died.

BAYLOR

submitted By: Bonnie Baylor Garmon

Wainwright F. Baylor, his brother Lewis Baylor and their brother-in-law Fredrick Taylor enlisted January 20, 1862, in Company A, St. James Mounted Rifleman (Manigualt's Battalion), South Carolina Volunteers. This unit broke up in May, 1862 and became Company D, (Thomas Pinckney, Captain), 4th Regiment (Rutledge) SC Calvary.

Wainwright and Lewis transferred March 23, 1864, to Company I, 23rd SC Infantry (Hatch's Regiment Coast Rangers) They are listed (erroneously) on the roster of Company I as Wainwright and Lewis Butler. They were both captured March 25, 1865, near Petersburg and taken to Point Lookout, Md., as prisoners of war. There Wainwright signed the Oath and was paroled June 24, 1865.

We have the Pension Application from Wainwright's widow, with several documents signed by comrades, including Colonel Benjamin Rutledge's son, Benjamin H. Rutledge. They were Wainwright Baylor's family attorneys. A good source of information about Captain Thomas Pinckney is "Captives Immortal," by Mauriel Phillips Joslyn, White Mane Publishing Co., 1996. This includes a good biography, some remembrances of his time as a prisoner of war, and a photograph of Captain Pinckney.

BENTLEY

submitted by: Gary Wilbanks
Bentley, William Henry - Company B, Orr's Regiment, Private, Abbeville Co., born June 13, 1836 in Abbeville, SC. He was the son of Henry Bentley. William married Sarah A. Little (dau. Of Pierce Little and Teresa Waite) on December 10, 1857. According to his muster papers, he enlisted as a private, "April 1, 1862 for three years or the war" in Company B, Orr's Regiment. According to his Confederate records he is listed as a prisoner of war as of Sept. 13, 1862. It appears he was taken prisoner sometime between the start of the Battle of Second Manassas and the days prior to the Battle of Sharpsburg (Antietam). Family lore says he was wounded by artillery which resulted in his capture by the Yankees. By September 30, 1862, he had been paroled and was in 1st Division, General Hospital Camp Winder, Richmond, VA. His Confederate records show that he died on November 18, 1862, in General Hospital Camp Winder, of typhoid pneumonia. His wife, Sarah A. Little Bentley, left her three children in the care of a negro slave named "Uncle Pat" and travelled to Richmond, VA to bring his body back for burial in Abbeville, SC.

[From Mamie Yeary, "Reminiscences of the Boys in Gray, 1861-1865"
(Dallas, 1912; reprint Dayton, OH: Morningside House, 1986).

JOHN Y. BOWEN, Pyron, Texas.-- Born near Glassy Mountain, Pickens County,  S.C., Aug. 18, 1841. Enlisted in the Confederate Army on Trinity River,  south of Dallas, as "high private in the rear ranks" in Company D, Sixth  Texas Cavalry, Gen. Ross' Brigade, Gen. Van Dorn's Division, Army of  Mississippi and Tennessee. I did not have the misfortune of being  promoted, but held my own. Was slightly wounded at Elkhorn, Ark. On the 15th of April, 1862, was dismounted and sent across the river. Ross' Brigade was in the battle of Corinth in October, 1862. Company D went into the battle with sixty-three men; thirty-three were either killed or wounded. Gen. Ross' Brigade was re-mounted November, 1862. It consisted of the Third, Sixth and Ninth Texas Regiments and the Texas Legion. The first raid we made after being remounted we went into Tennessee. We were in every battle in Mississippi except Vicksburg when it fell. It would be too much to go over all the things which I did and saw during the war. It has been said that those east of the Mississippi saw the elephant, and it was true. We followed Sherman and we could locate his line of march by the burning gins, barns and dwellings. It seemed that his Yankees enjoyed the misery which they dealt out to the Southerners. The regiment I belong[ed] to crossed Red River with one hundred and forty-four of as fine men as ever went into an army and more than half of them never saw Texas again. Gen. Sherman was right when he said "war is hell."

Islars Edisto Rifles).By June 14,1863,he began showing up on muster rolls as sick,cause being rheumatism,with accompanying surgeon's certificates.He spent some time in Jackson Hospital,Richmond,VA.He was apparently there from 6 Dec,1864,untilJan.or June 1865,at which time he was given a 60 day furlough.According to family lore he died while on leave,although a date is not shown.

* This is my great grandfather. He was born in SC in 1844-45 (don’t know where). I don’t know who his parents or siblings are, but feel he could be related to one of these Bradham men. I am assuming that he moved to Florida after the Civil War (have not seen 1870 census) but he is in Hernando Co.,FL in 1880, age 35, farmer, with himself and both parents as being born in South Carolina. He married Mary Jane Ellis (b. 1848 Sumter Co.,FL), dau. of James E. Ellis (b.1817 Ireland) and Jane Godwin (b.1827 Georgia, prob. Ware Co.) I don’t know where L.S. Bradham, or his wife are buried, but her family and some other Bradham’s are buried in different cemeteries in Pasco Co.,FL (Pasco was formed out of Hernando) He died abt. 1898 - his wife is listed as widow in the 1900 Pasco Co.,FL census.
