Obituary of Theodore F. Malloy, Cheraw, South Carolina.

Theodore F. Malloy was born at Cheraw, S. C., where he died on March 14, 1916, at the age of seventy-five. He enlisted at the very beginning of the war, going out as orderly sergeant of Company C, 8th Regiment of South Carolina Volunteers. Upon reorganization of the regiment, a year later, he was promoted to lieutenant, and when the captain of the company was killed at Gettysbirg he was elected captain and so served till the end of the war. His regiment was a part of Kershaw's Brigade, McLaw's Division, Longstreet's Corps, and he was in nearly all of the large battles in which Kershaw's Brigade participated. On many occasions he commanded the regiment being the senior captain present. He was one of five brothers who volunteered and served throughout the war.

After the war he was married to Miss Mary McKay, of Cheraw, who survives him. He was for many years mayor of Cheraw and Commandant of Camp J. B. Kershaw, U. C. V., at the time of his death. He took great interest in Confederate history and visited the battle fields of Virginia in the past few years with Sons of Veterans. He attended the reunion at Gettysborg in 1913.
