Roll of Company I 23rd Regiment

South Carolina Volunteers,

The Sprott Guard

The following is a letter from A.J. Richbourg that appeared in the Manning Times on March 17, 1917.

Summerton, South Carolina

March 17, 1917

Editor, (Manning Times)

Please find enclosed the roll of Confederate soldiers of Clarendon County who volunteered at Manning and other places during the war as Co. I, 23rd S. C. Vol.-(Sprott Guards) - You will note there are 174 volunteers and out of that list only 11 are still alive. As far as I know 163 have been killed, wounded or died. To all who read this list of the dead Confederate veterans, if you will cut this roll out of this paper or typewrite a copy of the same, frame and hang it on your parlor walls, in years to come your heirs will search the rolls of the old Confederate dead to find if you are a heir or joint heir to the best blood this country offered on her alters, for the protection of mothers, homes and country. You may write them in gold if you wish, for they wrote them for you in their blood and suffered four long years. Only eleven left of this gallant band and they are soon to cross "The Great River of Death" to unite with them to the last roll call at the bar of God.

A. J. Richbourg,

The following is from a letter to the editor written by D.J. Bradham.

The Manning Times, June 24, 1891.

Editor, Manning Times: Above find muster roll of Company I, 23rd Regiment, South Carolina Volunteers, Confederate States Americas, as promised you. The list represents 129 names. From the commencement of thewar to the end of it we had about 180 names. I will try to account for them as I go along and show at what time they were transferred to us and from what comman. I beg that any member of the Sprott Gruards will feel at liberty any time to furnish me with information and to correct any mistakes that I may make for I assure you, comrades, that if I make mistakes it will be an error of the head and not of the heart. I shall write altogether from memory and such matter as is furnished me that I believe to be correct from eye witnesses. I shall call names and try to show what became of that long loist. Many of them fell in battle, many died from wounds received, and many have died since the war. A few remain as representatives of the Lost Cause.

David Oscar Brunson's Obituary

(D.O. Brunson was a great-great grandfather of Cynthia Ridgeway Parker and of Nelson McLeod.)

One By One They Are Passing Away

To the memory of D. Oscar Brunson who departed this life last Friday at his home at Davis Station

It is with a sad heart that Clarendon records the death of this noble man but more than all will be it to the comrades of his who followed the fortunes of Robert E. Lee in the shifting victories and defeats, suffering and privation which none know but those who followed the Southern Cross, with numberless odds of the enemy in front and suffering and starvation in the rear. D. Oscar Brunson left Clarendon with the Sprott Guard, afterwards Company I, 23rd SCV. His genial character and gentle heart always cheered the darkest hours of a soldier's life. He always looked upon the sunny side of life, and like the good Samaritan he was ever ready to assist the needy as a soldier. He was as brave as the bravest. The writer, who stood by his side in the front ranks of his company on the 17th day of June 1864 at Petersburg, Virginia, witnessed the grandest struggle between the North and the South, and on this line D. Oscar Brunson was seriously wounded and carried on the back of his comrade to where he could get assistance. We see him after he returns home to see his cities in ashes, his fields desolate, and every home a house of mourning. But he hastens to assist his comrades in reforming their shattered ranks, preparing and caring for the women and children of our desolate land. "The Reaper Death has claimed our comrade and taken a prize from our midst!" But beyond these dark somber shadows, we see the smiling face of his who never errs, and in behalf of the comrades of old Company I, 23rd S. C. V., we extend a soldier's sympathy to the family of our comrade, assuring them that his memory will ever live in the hearts of all his comrades, who assured that a few more remnants are left when, "Not far beyond We all shall camp Beyond life's battle line To join the army Of Robert Lee That rests beneath the pines"
St. Paul

Daniel Judson Hudson

 BRADHAM, DANIEL JUDSON, of Manning, Clarendon county, South Carolina, was born October 6, 1841, in the town where he has always resided. His parents were Abijah Randolph Bradham and Leonora (Kelly) Bradham. The family is of Irish extraction, Mr. Bradham's grandfather having come to South Carolina from Virginia with General Sumter in the colonial days. Mr. Bradham's early years were passed in the country. He worked on a farm in the summer; in the winter he attended "old field" schools. His father having died when he was about fourteen years of age, Mr. Bradham's school education was seriously interfered with, although his widowed mother managed to keep him in school for some six months after her husband's death. For the next five or six years he worked as clerk in a general merchandise store in the town of Manning, attending school during the winter. On the breaking out of the War between the States he entered the Confederate army. He lost an arm at the second battle of Manassas. Before he was twenty years of age he was made captain of Company I, Twenty third South Carolina infantry, and he served until the end of the war.

He has held various public offices since the close of the war. From 1865 to 1869 he was sheriff of Clarendon county; from 1886 to 1891 he was county auditor; and again he served as sheriff for ten years, from 1891 to 1901. He was a member of the constitutional convention of South Carolina held in 1895, and represented his native state as a delegate at large in the Democratic national convention held in Chicago in 1896, at which William Jennings Bryan was nominated for president. Mr. Bradham has recently served as a representative from Clarendon county in the South Carolina legislature.

By religious affiliation he is a Baptist. He is a member of the order of Knights of Pythias, Gamecock Lodge, No. 17, Sumter, South Carolina. He married, October 13, 1859, Sarah F. Hodge. On October 13, 1896, Mr. Bradham married as his second wife, Sarah J. Holladay. He has had seven children, of whom five are now living. His address is Manning, South Carolina.

Colonel Benbow is buried in the Manning Cemetery.
