"He  became separated from the company after the surrender and plodded to Lynchburg where he was paroled on April 14,1865." - Jeremiah Smith

(Believe this to be Lewis S. Sessions, born about 1841 son of Josiah Tillman and and Mary Frances Sarvis Sessions on the 1850 Horry County census. The 1870 census shows him as a brick mason born about 1845. Living with him is his mother Mary. Quite a few researchers have him listed as Lewis L., that is a transcription error from the 1850 census.)
