A brief bio of Robert deTreville from Bulloch, The Habersham and other Southern Families (Columbia, 1905): Robert de Treville, second son of Hon. Richard de Treville and C. M. Joyner, attended the schools of the Revs. Mellichamp and Fielding; entered the South Carolina College and gradu¬ated in 1853; studied law and was admitted to the Bar in 1855, and practiced with his father until the beginning of the war, at which time he was a member of the Washington Light Infan¬try. After a short term of service with that command, he was commissioned First Lieutenant in the (Confederate States) Provisional Army, in the regiment that became the 1st South Carolina Infantry (Regulars), and rose to be its Lieutenant Colonel. He was killed in the hard-fought battle of Averysboro, N. C., March 16, 1865, while in command of that regiment.* Ever conspicuous for gallantry, he partici-pated in most of the engagements in Charleston harbor, and it was while under his command that Fort Moultrie underwent the severest ordeal in its whole history, September 8, 1863.t He married, December 4, 1860, Eliza, eldest daughter of John Heyward Glover, of Marietta, Ga., formerly of Colleton Co.,
S. C., and Jane Porter Bolan, and left two children:
a. Robert Glover de Treville, born November 17, 1861.
b. Ruth de Treville, born August 2, 1863.
