The Hyman-Eaddy Family Reunion on Saturday, September 2, 2023 was AWESOME!
The weather was nice and the drive to Pamplico (abt 70 mile from our house in Goose Creek, South Carolina) was nice too.
We got to see, talk to and meet many of Donna's cousins, aunts and uncles, most of whom we haven't seen in several years. It was really great to mingle with them. Carrie and the other cousins who put the reunion together want to start doing it every year on Labor Day weekend. it was also one of Donna's aunt's birthdays. We'll post some photos soon.
We had lunch around 12-12:30. Lunch was catered by Woodstone BBQ in Florence, South Carolina (abt 15 miles from Pamplico). The menu consisted of BBQ (pulled pork for all you non-southerners lol), rice with red gravy or hash, butter beans, mac & cheese, sweet potato souffle, slaw, hush puppies and a variety of desserts. Everything was absolutely delicious!
William M. Hyman was born in Marion County in 1812 shortly after his parents, Eaton and Wealthy Hyman moved there from Martin County, North Carolina. William married Elizabeth Howren from Georgetown, South Carolina in 1845, at age 33. He later had a family with Katherine Richardson in 1854. He had a farm in Marion County but also worked as a merchant in Georgetown.
William was in his late 40's when he joined the South Carolina 10th Regiment in the summer of 1861. The regiment was formed in the coastal counties to defend the port of Georgetown after most of the other state regiments went to Virginia. The regiment initially had many older men, like William, but they were allowed to leave the army when the regiment was moved to Mississippi in the spring of 1862 as reinforcements after the Battle of Shiloh. His brother left the regiment, while William stayed.
The regiment was part of the Kentucky campaign in the autumn of 1862 and was at the Battle of Perryville. William fell ill as the army marched back south through the Cumberland Gap and entered the hospital at Tazewell, Tennessee in October 1862. He was moved to the Fairgrounds Hospital where he died about six weeks later.
