Martin, Alonzo (16 JAN 1845 - 16 SEP 1874)
I have not been able to find William Byrd Martin or his son Alonzo C. Martin (my gr gr gdf and his oldest son) anyplace.
I could not find a William Byrd Martin or even B. Martin who fought in a SC unit, but there were 21 William Martins from such units. I had better luck with the boy, though. Alonza (sic) C. Martin was in the SC 14 Infantry, Co. I. (None of the Williams was in this unit, by the way). He was listed as 16 on his first muster roll from 9/10/1861 at Camp Butler. It says he enlisted 9/3/1861 at Camp Butler for the duration of the war. He was present through May-June 1863, then absent on wounded furlough July-Aug. 1863. For Sept - Oct 1863 he was "absent detached service" in Abbeville, SC. He was present once again Nov - Dec 1863 through Nov - Dec 1864, then was listed as a prisoner with the Army of Northern Virginia who was paroled at Appomattox Court House.
Alonza C. Martin is definitely mine. He was born 16 Jan 1845 and died 16 Sep 1874. William Byrd Martin born 1 Sep 1814, Abbeville Co.SC, died 15 Jun 1893, Anderson Co.SC & buried Sandy Springs U. Methodist, Sandy Springs SC.
Martin, Hilliard O. (16 JAN 1845 - 16 SEP 1874)
