Many of these men transferred to the Palmetto Sharpshooters Company M, when the 5th SCV was reorganized.

From "A Story of My Reminiscenses" by Richard "Dick" M. Jolly, 1924. This roll call is made from memory. I cannot remember the others. Submitted by Barbara
Also from "History of Spartanburg County" by. Dr. J.B.O. LANDRUM, Published 1900, Pages 526-7.
Captain J.Q. CARPENTER; b. c1827, Lincolnton, NC. At the age of 19 (1846) he volunteered and went to Mexico as a member of a North Carolina Regiment, returning home after peace was declared. Where he began "Merchandising" at Grassy Pond in Spartanburg Co., SC. At the outbreak of the Civil War. a (CSA) Company was organized embracing the territory of Spartanburg, portion of the present day Cherokee Counties. This Company was composed of the very best young men in this section afforded.The Company was organized with the 5th Regiment, SC. Volunteers, and was known as "G" Company of that Regiment. It served in Virginia for the most part of the first year of the War, and participated in all the active campaigns and marches of that year. At the expiration of his term of twelve month's enlistment, and upon the reorganization of the armies of the Confederacy in 1862, Captain CARPENTER was again elected Captain of a newly-organized Company, known as Company M, Palmetto Sharpshooters but he was permitted to serve only a few weeks. While gallantly leading his men into action he was killed at the Battle of Seven Pines on 31st May 1862, age 35.
