    Note
    • "Samuel W. Dew was already serving in the confederate army when his brother, Christopher Tobias Dew joined. It is beleived that Christopher was probably about 37 years old. Samuel and his brother Christopher served in the same South Carolina Infantry Comapny. Then as on December 7th, 1862 as soliders, the two were standing next to each other when they were called to attention. They were in the vicinity of Goldsboro, North Carolina. These pieces of information are a matter of record. When called to attention Christopher stiffened his legs. A large minute ball which he saw coming from the side barely missed his legs but hit those of his brother, Samuel, who fell as his legs were knocked off. The ball rose into the air on impact. The order was given to immediately march. as soon as it was possible Christopher explained to an Officer what had happened to his brother and was allowed to return to his brother's side.  By this time Samuel didn't even know his brother but asked for water. Samuel died in a few minutes because of the extensive blood loss. His brother got a large box in which meat had been packed and delivered and used it as a coffin to bury Samuel in the area of the "Moore's Creek Battleground". He marked the spot of the burial by using an ax in carving a notch in a tree in the hopes of returning some day to bring his brother's remains back to South Carolina for burial: however he was never able to return."
