C., from which place he enlisted in the Confederate army in May, 1861, as a member of A. H. Foster's company, 5th South Carolina Regiment, Jenkin's Brigade. With this command he served throughout the war, surrendering at Appomattox. As he says, he didn't have a thing to fight for, not even a wife, and could not speak the English language"; but he is proud of his record as a Confederate soldier. He went to Texas in 1880 and settled near Bartonville, Denton County, and has lived there ever since, a highly respected citizen. He is now eight-two years old and would be glad to hear from any of his comrades of the sixties. His address is Argyle, Tex., Route 1.
