Jabez P Robinson - 3rd Sergeant   
Jabez was educated at the common schools and volunteered in Co. C 7th S.C. Regiment in 1861, he was 3rd Sergeant. He was cousin to almost everyone in Co.G 14th SC. In the first day's battle at Savage Station near Richmond he was wonded and bled to death before he could be found. He was buried in soldier fashion, but it was decided by his mother and brother that his remains must rest in the Campbell grave yard. Fred Cook was sent on the mournful errand which was found hard to accomplish. The body was located and put in the coffin and the coffin was put into a larger box wherein much wheat bran was placed all around it and carried to the depot where the men were forbidden to carry southward the dead, for want of space.
The negro man who was in charge declined, after some questions and answers, to allow it to be put on board, but after some benefaction offered and received, it was put on board. Thence it came down from the C&G depot toward Bradleys or Millway, where a sorrowing crowd accompanied it to the Campbell grave yard. No better close of this narration can be found than the words of his brother, Robert, when he read the telegram announcing the fatal event: 'How sleep the brave, who sink to rest, by all their country's wishes blest!'. Jabez was engaged to Ann Cook.

William David Rowell - Unknown   
William is my second great-grandfather. He was the son of Valentine and Mary Collins Rowell. He was married to Annis Dozier on December 12, 1875.

Company D 7th Battalion, SC Reserves

Mr W. D. Rowell, age 72 years Confederate veteran and one of the best citizens of the Centenary section, died at his home near that place Thursday morning, after an illness of about six weeks. Heart disease was the cause of the death of this good citizen. The body was laid to rest at Reedy Creek Church Friday, in the presence of a large gathering of sorrowing friends and relatives. The good wife of the aged man died about 19 years ago.

William was a quiet, law-abiding and valuable citizen in this community. He spent his life in the quiet pursuit of tilling the soil, and no man was his enemy. His face will be missed, but his good deeds will live on in the hearts of those who knew him.
