Military service: died in War of 1812

CHARLESTON COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA -
Mount Pleasant Confederate Cemetery - Old Village, Mount Pleasant, South Carolina
Cross the Cooper River Bridges (HWY 17), then turn onto Coleman Boulevard (HWY 703), stay on this road until you reach Shem Creek. Cross the bridge, take a right at the fork in the road - Whilden/ Royall. Continue straight until King Street -- turn right onto King until Carr Street (on the corner is a pink building called the Darby Building). Take a left onto Carr, the cemetery will be on the left.

Side 1: On the 18th, June 1812 the United States of America declared war against Great Britian. At the first Sound of Trumpet, the Patriot Soldiers who sleep beneath this monument flew to the Standard of Liberty. Here they fell beneath the scythe of Death. The sympathies of the Brave, the tear of the Stranger and the Slow Dirges of the Camp attended them to the Tomb. How sleep the Brave, who sink to rest With all their Country's wishes blests! The Laurel leaf of shining green Will still around their Tomb be seen.
Side 2: Sacred to the Memory Sergeants Tilman Goodrich, and Adam C Spencer - Also of David Arrant, William Rutland, John Williams, John A. Placide, Thomas Madden, William McLellan, Henry Kilgore, John Taylor, John Bruce, and Harris Lancaster, Private Soldiers of the 3d Regiment of State Troops.
