Joseph A. Drummond Papers, 1861-1863

Joseph A. Drummond (b. ca. 1831) was a farmer from Barnwell District, South Carolina. He served as a private in Co. G and Co. E, 1st South Carolina Infantry (Hagood's). At the time of the Federal Census of 1860, Drummond and his wife, Martha (b. ca. 1830), had two children, James (b. ca. 1856) and Susan (b. ca. 1858). Martha and the children appear in the 1870 Census but Joseph does not. In the 1880 census, Martha is marked as widowed. His military records indicate that he was wounded at Second Bull Run on August 30, 1862, then taken prisoner and paroled at Warrenton, Virginia on September 29, 1862.
