The Sixteenth South Carolina
Company C

Croft's Mountain Rangers

Company C was probably formed in the Upper Part of Greenville County. From the Travelers Rest area and down toward the base of Paris Mountain about halfway to Greenville. It was one of many "one man" units of the southern army.

Randall Croft was a wealthy and powerful man. He was from the seacoast elite, owning a number of valuable properties on the coast of South Carolina. He was also a doctor, who maintained a large experimental farm in Greenville County. His home was near where Rutherford Road today intersects with 291 Bypass. He formed and paid for Croft's Mountain Rangers from his own pocket. His son, T.G., was Captain of the unit for most of its life, being promoted to Major around the time of Bentonville. He was seventeen when he was promoted to command of the unit. Edward Croft from McGowan's Brigade (14th S.C.V.) is also buried in the family plot, as is another Randall of the First S.C., the unit is not specified.

This is my revised roster of Company C, Sixteenth South Carolina. It is drawn from a wide group of sources. There are problems with it. I have attempted to show all men so some duplication is possible. The one name Boline needs additional work, John and John Wesley Brown may be the same man and the same applies to T.J. and Jefferson Clary and C.M. and Charles Duncan. I believe Turner and Twiner is also the same man. C was one of the smaller companies of the Sixteenth and has presented fewer issues of this type.

Of the 139 men of Company C: 12 were captured; 4, all wounded, at Franklin, 4 at Hartwell, one each at Cassville, Citronelle Ala., and Nashville In one case, it is unknown where the capture took place. The four captured at Hartwell, Ga., may relate to the small number of men from C Company at the Surrender. The Army of Tennessee was scattered across four states moving toward North Carolina. I suspect C Company was at the tail of the move and these men were making the way home having been delayed on the way to North Carolina. I have no evidence to back that feeling.

11 members of C Company were Killed in Action, 20 Died of Illness, and 4 Died in Prisons. Most of those who died in captivity died following wounds at Franklin. Those killed in action died as follows: 4 at Franklin, 2 at Atlanta, and one each at Jonesboro, Kennesaw Mt., and Dallas or New Hope Church. In two cases, it is unknown where they were killed.

In addition to the 11 killed, 8 members were wounded. All of the listed wounded from Franklin and Nashville died in captivity and are listed in those sections. Three were wounded at Atlanta and one each at Lovejoy, Kennesaw Mt., Cassville, and Resaca. It is unknown at this time where one man was wounded. I have the nagging feeling with Company C that good records were not kept, but that is the case with all Confederate Units.

There were 10 men present at the Surrender. 11 attended the 1883 meeting where the colors were brought from hiding. One member of C Company galvanized and fought with the Union Navy. One member of the company was from Fairfield; all the rest appear to be from Greenville. No one appears to have deserted. Although small, I consider this to be one of the fine companies of the regiment.

UNC-Chapel Hill, Manuscripts Department, Southern Historical Collection Microfilm #M-823 (Stoney & Porcher family papers) includes a roster belonging to Capt T. Gaillard Croft, Co C, 16th Regiment, SCV 1862.
As always, Thanks to Suzanne Matson, who helps so many with her work.

Notes from the
Greenville Newspaper

A final note on the nature of how men died and how it is recorded. Lewis Duncan is listed as having died of illness in Charleston in 1862. The following article from the Greenville Enterprise is enlightening if nothing else. Some things never change.

The following two articles were provided by Mann Batson.

A Soldier Killed

Private Lewis Duncan of Captain Croft's Company, Sixteenth S.C.V. was killed in the cars in Charleston on Sunday 16, inst., by a member of the same company. His remains were brought to Greenville. His family resides near Paris Mountain in this district.

To the Friends of Company C Sixteenth Regiment, S.C.V.:

I write in behalf of my men, and make this appeal to you generosity, to try and furnish, as far as possible, some fifty of my men with blankets or any stout coverings. The government will not be able to furnish all of the needy soldiers before the cold blasts of the coming winter will be upon us. We were unfortunate enough to have all of our knapsacks and baggage burned that were sent to our rear in Mississippi, to keep them from falling into the hands of our enemy, and it is under these circumstances that I have made this appeal believing that my appeal to the friends and families of the men of my company, will not be in vain. Think of the soldier as he marches along through the mud, rain, and cold, that you our dear friends at home may never know the oppressor’s rule.

Lt. J.M. Duncan is now in Greenville on duty and will receive all donations for my men, and forward them through Dr. Laborde to me.

Corporal Irvin Batson

Of all the Batson's that went off to war in 1861, none is more carefully documented than Corporal Irvin Batson of Croft's Mountain Rangers. Dr. Ron Bridwell of the University of South Carolina has devoted countless hours to his ancestor and the Sixteenth. He has been kind enough to share his knowledge time and again with anyone and everyone. The first picture of Irvin maybe the only picture of the uniform of Croft's Mountain Rangers that survives, although the proof of that is illusive. The second depicts Irvin later in the war in the standard shell jacket. Following the pictures is the obituary written by his second wife. Dr. Bridwell also informs us that the men of Croft's Mountain Rangers were furnished with an Episcopal Prayer book by their sponsor, Dr. Randall Croft, at the beginning of the war. Ervin's copy of this prayer book still survives. Dr. Bridwell was kind enough to share with all of us a second document, that is unique and will be found under Company K as the content is relevant to that unit. Finally this, Dr. Bridwell relates that the artifical leg used by Corporal Batson survives and that it attached at the waist to provide a stiff leg for walking. It is remembered that in church, to sit down, the arm of the leg would be undone and this part of the leg extended in the air like a small flag pole, marking where Corporal Batson sat. His children would identify his seat by looking for that. To email Dr. Bridwell and thank him for his work use the following email link.

This obituary of Corporal Irvin Batson was prepared by his wife.
Provided by Dr. Ron Bridwell

After a painful illness of several weeks. Ervin Batson, a loyal soldier passed away at his home in Greenville Co, S.C. He was a son of Lewis and Elizabeth Batson and was the youngest child of eleven. He was born on Paris Mountain, S.C. Feb. 13, 1843 and died 3 of March 1915.

On the 15 day of Oct 1861 he enlisted in Company C 16 S.C. regiment in Gen Guess battalion under Capt. T.G. Croft at Piney Mountain, S.C. and served in that command until the first day of Sep. 1864 and at that time was a member of Company C 16 S.C. under Capt T.G Croft. While in such service on the first day of Sep. 1864 at Lovejoy Ga he was wounded and lost his right leg.

In 1860 he was married to Mrs. Catherine Pool, and of their union nine children were born six of whom are now living. His second wife was Mrs. Nora Seruton (copied as written) who survives him. they were married in July 1905. He was a good citizen and a consistent member of The Baptist Church. His battle is over he wears the crown.

One James McNeely, 16th Reg, no company listed, appears on a register of CSA General Military Hospital, Jan 1863: Pneumonia.

So as you can see, there is a conflict of dates on all three of these men, leading me to believe they were three seperate individuals. The two in K and C were both promoted to Corporal, and the dates aren't right for the older McNeely in Co. A to have somehow reinlisted. And C was still present in his company when K was a POW.

Clary, Jefferson P C None Jefferson Clary appeared on a company muster roll for May & June 1862. It states he enlisted Mar 25 (no year given) at Camp Leesburg by C. J. Elford for 12 months. Under remarks: Exchanged for T. Ligon 1st Reg. SCV on 19 July 1862. I think that T. J. Clary and Jefferson Clary may be the same person. I requested the records of T. J. Clary and received Jefferson Clary. I was searching for the husband of Mary E. Holtzclaw, sister of the Capt. Holtzclaw (Company F). She was married to a T. J. Clary in June 1856 and died Aug 1856. She is buried at Brushy Creek with all the Holtzclaws.

* All the armies of the Confederacy were reorganized in April of 1862. Many officers lost positions and resigned or enlisted in other units. Wm. Faulkner, the Southern writer and Nobel winner, addresses this in Satoris, a novel that is a thinly hidden biography of his grandfather, a Colonel in Confederate Service who lost his position. Most of these men chose to serve in the ranks and more than a few former Captains and Colonels died in those hallowed ranks as private soldiers.
