My maternal 2xg/g'father was Thomas ELLIOTT [b. 15 Apr 1830 in Kershaw
County, SC - d. 3 Jan 1865, killed in action during the seige of
Petersburg, VA].  Thomas was a son of Thomas H. ELLIOTT and Jane HOLLAND.
 He married Mary Ellen NELSON [b. 3 Jun 1835 in Kershaw County, SC - d. 3
Sep 1910 near Columbia, Richland, SC].  

Thomas ELLIOTT had a short, turbulent tour of duty in the military:

Enlisted as a Private, 01 May 1864, with Co. G, Hampton Legion Infantry
of Foot, under the command of Capt. E. Scott Carson and Col. Logan. 
Taken prisoner 14 Aug 1864, and exchanged 01 Nov 1864 at Venus Point,
Savannah River, GA.  Killed in action at the Seige of Petersburg, VA on
03 Jan 1865.  Also with Company K, 7th SC Cavalry. 

Any ELLIOTT or HOLLAND relatives out there in cyberland?
