Samuel Carter Williams - Captain   
Samuel Carter Williams was born in Pittsylvania Co., Va in 1832. Both of his parents died when he was a child and he and a surviving brother were raised by grandparents who owned a large plantation on the Banister River. After being educated, in 1850 he worked as a mercantile clerk and belonged to the Roman Eagle Masonic Lodge in Danville. On Dec. 20,1853 he married Elizabeth Ann Fallen. They had five children. Around 1855 he purchased a 998 acre tobacco plantation near Paces in SW Halifax County, VA.

On May 7, 1861 he enlisted at Brooklyn as 2nd LT in Co. E, the Brooklyn Grays. This unit fought for most of the war in Allegheny Johnson's Division. He was elected Captain in May, 1862, paricipated in Kernstown and later was wounded in the arm at McDowell,captured, exhanged and rejoined his unit in August. He was present for duty thereafter until he was KIA, participating in Sharpsburg and all of the major ANV battles including Culp's Hill. Williams was killed on Nov. 27, 1863 in an assault on Union forces at Paynes Farm after his column, part of Steuart's Brigade, was ambushed on Raccoon Ford Road.

The 23rdVA sustained 30% casualties at Kernstown and was commended by Jackson. Captain Williams is cited by name three times in the O.R.'s for bravery and leadership, following McDowell, Chancellorsville and Payne's Farm. Williams is buried in the family cemetery on the site of his former plantation and the plot is maintained by descendants.
