I think Karen has the "right" Pocataligo to respond to Charles Compton.  I
might add that there is also Pocataligo Swamp just outside of Manning in
Clarendon County...US 521/301 pass right through it.

Old joke:

A: Pocataligo. [Poke he tale and he go.]

     Can anyone on the list tell me the name of one of the places persons
 Laurens County joined the CSA ?  I have a service record before me and it
 looks like it says "Pucataligo in Beaufort District".  My map
 atlases nor GNIS servers are helping on this one. Any help out there ?
     This particular soldier died in the hospital in Richmond and I would
 like to decipher the name on this hospital so I can maybe determine the
 place of burial.  It looks like the document says, "...and died at
 (Mendes, Mender, Ninder, Winder, Ninder Nindes) Hpt."  Anybody have a
 what the name of this facility might be ? None of these choices have
"rung a
 bell" with anyone yet.
     Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this.
