Notes


http://www.charleston.net/stories/051803/loc_18hdstone.shtml


"Capt. Louis Augustus Whilden, one of five brothers to serve the Confederacy, was wounded 139 years ago in the Battle of Drewry's Bluff, Va., and died three months later in a hospital on the outskirts of Richmond.


Whilden's local descendants had assumed he was buried somewhere in Virginia. Then, in 1998, someone digging through files in Columbia discovered an obituary from the Charleston Daily Courier saying Whilden had been laid to rest in the family plot at Wappetaw Cemetery, one of East Cooper's oldest graveyards. The researcher passed along the word.


Last fall, Whilden's descendants in McClellanville started working on securing a gravestone for the cemetery, though they don't know exactly where he is buried.


On Saturday, they and others dedicated a gravestone and Confederate iron cross marker at the cemetery in a ceremony that featured a riderless horse, a symbol of Whilden's cavalry service, in addition to some re-enactors, a musket salute and the singing of the hymn "On Jordan's Stormy Banks I Stand." Whilden reportedly asked for the hymn to be sung to him while on his deathbed.


The ceremony underscored, to a degree, a much greater story of a family whose roots are embedded in the sandy soil and salty creeks and marshes of the area once known as the parishes of Christ Church and St. James Santee.


The Whildens were among a group of 52 Congregationalists who fled Massachusetts in 1696. Their ship wrecked near Cape Fear, N.C., and the Indians who rescued them led them to the area near the Wando River and Seewee Bay.


The group founded Wappetaw Congregational Church on the grounds where Wappetaw Cemetery is located, near See Wee restaurant on U.S. Highway 17. The church was the precursor of Mount Pleasant Presbyterian and McClellanville's New Wappetaw Presbyterian Church.


The Whildens, who mixed with local French Huguenots, had a hand in settling the villages of Mount Pleasant and McClellanville.


Elias Whilden was one of the founders of Mount Pleasant Academy in 1809, and in 1837 helped Andrew Hibben, Joshua Toomer and Samuel Venning lay out the villages of Mount Pleasant and Greenwich, both of which now constitute the area known as the Old Village.


Elias Whilden Jr. served as mayor, then called "intendant," of Mount Pleasant just before the Civil War. His sons became Confederate soldiers, perhaps the most famous being Maj. John "Johnnie" Whilden. He was among The Citadel cadets who fired on the Union steamship Star of the West and Fort Sumter in January and April, respectively, of 1861. He was killed Sept. 6, 1862 in the second Battle of Manassas.


Louis Augustus Whilden joined the Confederacy on April 15, 1861, at age 28, as a second lieutenant in Capt. Thomas Pinckney's Company of Independent Mounted Rifleman, S.C. Volunteers.
He later joined the fifth S.C. Cavalry Regiment and was a captain when he got shot May 16, 1864, in a battle in which Confederate forces kept a Union force from moving up the James River in an attempt to attack Richmond.


The effort to put up a marker for Louis Augustus Whilden started last fall with 92-year-old J.O. McClellan Jr. of McClellanville. He is Whilden's great-grandson.


"All my life, I assumed he was buried in Virginia," said McClellan, who vividly recalls visits during his boyhood by Whilden's widow, Sarah Claudia Morrison. "When I found out he was buried there (in Wappetaw Cemetery), I thought about (getting the gravestone) a few years, but never did anything about it."


McClellan told his daughter Wilhelmina McClellan Couch that he wanted to get a gravestone for Whilden. Couch, a member of United Daughters of the Confederacy, pulled together the documentation for an official marker and submitted it to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Bud Hill, the director of the Village Museum in McClellanville, said the gravestone is overdue for a man whose family contributed greatly to the community.


"These were the movers and shakers of early Mount Pleasant and McClellanville," Hill said."
