Hello To All,
I'm trying to locate any information pertaining to Washington Foster Garrison, b. Abt. 1818, d. 12/24/1862 @ home while on furlough in Anderson Co., SC; due to wounds received in the WBTS.
Foster is my GGGrandfather and was m. to Louisa Jane Morris.
I have information that indicates he "might" have been assigned to Co.D, 2nd Regt. or Co.D, 2nd SC Rifles. I'm trying to firm up this information before I contact the SC Archives.
Any information pertaining to Foster would be greatly appreciated. An old family photo of Foster is available (very faded, but one can see him just fine).
