Andrew Young Hunnicutt - ( 04 Apr. 1843 - died 1863 at Petersburg, VA.) Ref: Records of Jessie (Hunnicutt) Burgess, Clemson, SC, 1979: "Andrew Young Hunnicutt, born 4 Apr. 1843, was killed at Petersburg, VA, in 1863. His father went in a wagon to Virginia and picked up his body, along with a Rice and Robertson boy from Pickens District and brought them home for burial. Andy's mother kept him packed in charcoal for six weeks in a small room on the porch. She hoped his four brothers would get home before she had to bury him. Each night, she sat by his coffin and knitted. Alas, she had to bury him, as the War drug on. He is buried at Old Pickens Presbyterian Church. However, his grave cannot be found there. Mr. Ed Gantt told my granddad before he died that a person was buried almost in the same grave, but we were never certain since the rock head stone had been removed several years before."
