The History of Marlboro County has "McColl, John S. dead" and "McColl, Hugh S., captured Trevilian; died in prison". The problem is there was only one John S. (Sydney) McColl in Company "E" and he was captured by Union forces 1st Division at Cheraw, South Carolina and he did not die; he died in New South Wales, Australia and is buried there.
John enlisted as a Private in Co. "E", 4th South Carolina, Rutledge's Regiment South Carolina Cavalry, on January 12, 1862 at Bennettsville, Marlboro, South Carolina, was wounded on October 27, 1864; and was admitted to the ‘C.S.A. General Hospital in Danville, Virginia on November 1st, being transferred the same day to the Pettigrew Hospital No. 13 in Raleigh, North Carolina, where he is shown on the records of November 24th. Hospital records record his reason for admittance as "V.S. right arm flesh (core)"; being returned to duty on December 26th. John was taken prisoner on March 3, 1865, by Union forces 1st Division at Cheraw, South Carolina; and placed in the custody of Captain John C. Marvin, 17th Army Corps. Private John Sydney McColl, Co. "E", 4th South Carolina, Rutledge's Regiment South Carolina Cavalry was then delivered as a prisoner of war to New Berne, North Carolina by Captain A. Burns, Co. "D", Illinois 10th Infantry. On April 3, 1865, John was then delivered to Point Lookout, Maryland Union prison. John survived, and was eventually released on June 29, 1865 by G.O. No. 109, A.G.O.; after swearing and signing an 'Oath of Allegiance' to the Union States.(Directly from his Muster Roll card records)
