MURDER OF TOM LAWSON.
Capt. Billy Smith Recalls Tragic
Death of Georgia Boy Near
Chappells, August 1865.
The citizens of Newb-rry are faii
liar with the historv of the murder if
Calvin Crozier by the Federal troops.
The story has been told and re-old
during the past few years in the lo
cal newspapers. For many years his
body rested in an unmarked grave in i
the old graveyard. About twenty
years ago a few of those who remem
bered the incident and the brave and
chivalrous act of Crozier, started a
movement for the ereetion of a suit
able monument to -bis memory and
the removal of his remains from the
old graveyard ito Rosemont cemetery.
The movement proved successful and
a handsome monument now stands in
Rosemont cemetery and on its sides
is told the story of his bravery and
Capt. Billie Smith who has been a
conductor on the Columbia and
Greenville railroad for fifty years or
more, was the conductor oi the train
which brought -Crozier from Peak or
Alston, to Newberiy, where he met his
tragic death in August. 1865.
In talking with Capt Smith a few
days ago, he recalled this fact and
stated that there was another Con
federate youth who was returning ito
his home in Georgia, who traveled on
his train from Peak to Newberry
just about a week or ten days after
Crozier had come.
According to Capt. Smiith this
brave young Georgian also met a
tragic death in Newberry county, and
his remains still sleep hi theoldgrave
yard wit,'h no slab to mark their rest
ing place. His name was Tom Law
Capt. Smith said that it was a
part of his duty, as conductor on
the train to take the names of the
soldiers, their Company and Regi
ment, and where ithey were from.
When he came to young Lawson and he
stated that he was from Calhoun. Ga,
the scenes of his early boyhood came
to Capt. Smith, and he at once be
came inierested in young Lawson.
Capt. Smith is himself a native of
Georgia. and his father lived near
.Ralhoun. He made himself known to
young Lawson and it developed that
they were school boys together in the
days before the war and tVhat young
Lawson 's father was thie depot agent
for the W. and A. ia.ilroad ait Cal
houn. On account of this acquaint
ance and their association in former
years, Capt. Smith continued to be
interested in young La.wson.
Capt. Smith says that Lawson was
very siek and weak when he wvas
brought to Newberry, and that he was
put in the wayside hospital. which
was at that time a temporary build
ing alongside the rai'lroad where now
stands the water itank of the South
ern near the Union Depot. Younig
Lawlson continued to improve and
was about ready to resume his jour
ney to his home in Georgia. He had
told CapYe. Smith during their .con
versation as they came from Peak to
Newberry, of the manyv narrow es
capes lie had during the war. and that
he had acted in the capacity of a
Confederace spy and had often been
inside of the Federal lines.
Capt. Smith said that at his arriv
al in Newberry the Commander of
the- Federal garrison that was sta
tioned here, received information
that Lawson had been a Confederate
spy and immediately selected three
of his best and bravest men and is
sued orders that they capture Law
son and bring him to the post dead
or alive. WXhen they started to exe
cute the order and before capturing
flhwson, he started on foot on the
railroad track towards Chappells de
pot. The three Federal soldiers fol
iowing on foot in hot pursuit. They
continued the chase until Lawson had
reached the hill side in sight of Chap
pells depot, and .bei'ng weak to start
wi'rh, became exhausted and dropped
behind some bushes expecting, of
course. to be overtaken very soon.
As two of the Federal soldiers
came upon him he arose from his am
bush and with almost superhumau
strength rushed upon these soldiers
throwing them ito the ground and
taking from them their guns, but
just before he could put the gun into
use the third soldier fired upon him
sending a bullet through his heart.
Lawson fell dead.
It so happens that on that day
Capt. Smith was making a return trip
with his train from Ninety Six. Be
fore 'that he had been running be
tween Newberry and Alston. The Fed
eral soldiers came to his train at
Chappells and requested permission!
to bring the body of Lawson to New
berry. Permission was given. and
they p)lacedl it in a wagon b)ody whiech

The community was shocked on
last Sabbath morning to learn of the
sudden death of Mrs. R. H. AfcAulay.
This good woman had been sick for
some months but had recovered her
strength sufficiently to be able to go
about the house. On Saturday she
was out in the yard feeding the
chickens and did not retire until ten
o 'clock thait night and was very
cheerful throughout the day. At five
o'clock Sabbath morning her daugh
ter who wvas sleeping with her was
awakened by a peculiar hoise and call
ed j:o her m'other, but go4 no response.
The household was aroused and by
the time a light was brought Mrs.
McAulay had expired without utter
ing a word. Bro. McAulay wtho was
attending a meeting of the Presby
tery at Iva was phoned for and ar
rived at 12 o 'clock. It was indeed a

band. As he expressed it "the light
has gone out of my hou-se.'' The fun

'Moffatt made the concluding prayer
at the grave. Selections from the
Psalms were sung while the grave
