Facts and Notes

I could not find any reference to Samual McDill in the Civil War database hosted by the US National Park Service, but did find a reference to a "SM McDill" serving as a sergeant in companies G & F of the 6th Regiment, South Carolina Infantry. Samuel's younger brother - James Nixon McDill - also served in the 6th Regiment, as well as the 17th Regiment.6,7
