Confederate John H. Dill

Surnames: Dill, Johnson, Brevard, Merrell
I am trying to find more info on my 2nd Great-grandfather John H. Dill, whom was born 2 May 1843 in the upstate of SC (we think Greenville County) and died 19 Dec 1928 in Hendersonville, NC. He is buried at Ebenezer Baptist Church, Hendersonville, NC.

He may have had a previous wife in the Greenville area, but the wife I know of was Rachael Johnson (1855 - 27 Sep 1932) of Henderson County, NC. They had Thomas James Dill (25 Jul 1875 - 28 Sep 1945), Henry, Lilly Dill, William Jackson Dill, and Charles Dill.

Thomas James Dill married Mary Susan Brevard (20 Nov 1883 - 10 Oct 1967), daughter of David Franklin Brevard (1854 - 1919) and Jane R. Merrell (1858 - 1887).

I have reason to believe that his father was Garison Reynolds Dill (28 Dec 1819 - Abt. 1869) and his mother to be Louisa Eliza Davis (1818 - Aft. 1870), both of Greenville County, SC.

If that is correct, then his siblings would have been William Jackson Dill (1847 - Aft. 1860), Thomas Garson Dill (12 Jan 1850 - 16 Feb 1913), and Nancy Jane Dill (B. Abt. 1851).

John H. Dill's death cert states "don't know" for both mother and father, though it does state he was born in SC. His obit in the Times News of Hendersonville, NC states that he indeed was a Confederate Soldier, a farmer, and a member of Balfour Baptist Church.

I am looking for any and all info -- especially John H. Dill's Confederate Service -- that can be gained about these people, as they are very close family on my mother's side.
