Susan Finlay has transcribed the following roster for Wm. Green’s Company of Elford’s Reserves. The unit is known as Company E, Third South Carolina State Troops (June, 1862-January, 1863). This roster is of particular interest because it lists dates of birth. For more information about why this was done and the circumstances that required this, follow the link to “Elford to the Public.” The Second link is to Bil Brasington’s fine site on the South Carolina Reserve Units. Most of these men are from the Brushy Creek Community of Greenville. The Document is titled as follows:
