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.
