Harmon Neuffer, a promising and exemplary young man, and son of Chas. Neuffer, of Cola. So. Ca, died in Vienna, Virginia, Aug. 12th 1861 of Typhoid fever. Thus has another valuable life been sacrificed, to the mad ambition of the abolition government at Washington. This young man was an early volunteer, in the caseu of the Confederate States, and was one among the many, who hastened to Virginia, on the call of that State for assistance. He was not spared for the battles, which have taken place; but yet he is one of the very men, whose death demands a certain vengeance, on the heads of the vile wretches, who now compose the United States Government, and its hireling beggarly and murderous soldiers, the very outcasts of decent society, and the veriest miscreants, who disgrace humanity. [verse follows]
Harmon was enlisted at Bull Run, Va., by Captain Wallace, June 10, 1861; on muster roll of June 30, 1861. He was a member of the 2nd SC Volunteer Infantry - Company C. He is buried in the Elmwood Cemetery in Columbia, SC. Broken Fortunes reports his date of death as 11 AUG 1861.
