Edward Carson (middle initial is listed as E. and R. on 1850 and 1860 Census records and B. on his headstone) was the only son of his parents, Beneijah Steele Carson and Frances "Fanny" Givins, all of York District, South Carolina.

He enlisted as a private in Company F (listed as Co. I on his headstone), 17th Regiment, South Carolina Infantry sometime in 1861. He died sometime between 10 August and 17 September 1862 in the hospital in Winchester, VA per his Confederate service record, and it is unknown whether he died of wounds or disease. His record only states that he died in the hospital at Winchester, VA. He never married or fathered any children so perhaps this is why Uncle Edward (my 2nd great grand uncle) is near and dear to my heart.

This memorial is posted in loving memory of a defender of the Confederate States of America--by Melissa.

I would like to thank Jerry Wilson, who first posted this memorial for my Uncle Edward, and the Find A Grave administrators for transferring this memorial to me after the passing of Mr. Wilson. Thank you for honoring my Confederate ancestor.
