His Unit was Company C & Staff, 24 South Carolina Infantry. He enlisted at Georges Station, South Carolina, 7 January 1862, at age 48. On last Roll May/June 1863. Remarks: Resigned June 11,

D. C. Appleby and 17 year old Peter R. Appleby. 

Correction of (above)  record of Morgan Thomas) provided by Gail Appleby Cannon, 9 April 2004: Information from Gail Appleby Cannon, gailcannon@atlantic.net   (4/9/2004), as follows:

"I have the estate papers of Morgan Thomas Appleby.  Indeed he did enlist as a Capt. and made Major before he resigned to serve  as State Senator for the parish of St. George's Dorchester and he did have two sons, but their names were A. C. Appleby and Felix Vivian Appleby. He also had a daughter, Ada. A.C. stands for Adrian Connor. Felix later became Mayor of St. George.
The children mentioned belong to David Clinton Appleby and Amelia Ann Stokes Appleby. I have the will of Amelia Ann Appleby. In fact, the Peter R. Appleby mentioned is my great-grandfather. (signed) Gail Appleby Cannon"
