For military records prior to Dillon County's formation
Marion County Military Records.
This poem by Mandy Ruddick is dedicated to the James A. McDaniel Family.
Come on home to me my
sleep in peace, lay to rest
for your journey is done
and what I wouldn't give just
to see you at play
in the grasses and fields where
now you must lay
come home to me my
you will not die in vain for battles
and what I wouldn't give just to
rock you once more
in this chair that I sit in
like my mother before
so I come home to you my
the waiting is over and now
we'll be one
but what I wouldn't give just
to be there today
in the fields of Carolina where
now we must lay.
The following is a copy of the names listed on the War Memorial
