“According to his memoir, during his time as a cadet he was in command of the alarm gun which sounded to warn Charleston’s defenses of the approach of the Union steamer Star of the West. After his graduation he became an assistant professor of French and drawing at The Citadel and served first with the Washington Artillery where he rose to Sergeant Major, then with the Battalion of State Cadets. He subsequently achieved the rank of Lieutenant in the Battalion of State Cadets.
Coffin was appointed Adjutant to the Battalion of State Cadets prior to the battle of Tulifinny. Serving with Company A, Coffin was seriously wounded when he was struck in the head and knocked unconscious by a Union musket bullet. He survived but the injury left him disabled for several months.
In 1867 Coffin was hired as a draftsman with the Phoenix Iron Company in Phoenixville PA to make designs and estimate costs for various buildings. He designed many of the buildings of Phoenixville and devised and copyrighted a table specifying the values of beams for various floor loads. A member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Coffin later advanced to Chief Engineer with the company. He designed many famous buildings of that period including Madison Square Garden, the Crocker Building in San Francisco, the Provident Building in Philadelphia, and others. He later moved on to another company in NY and prepared the designs for many notable buildings including the New York Stock Exchange, CCNY and the Wisconsin State Capitol. A Citadel Distinguished Alumni, Coffin is buried at Morris Cemetery in Phoenixville, PA. ” – Article and Photo Matt Lacina ’89

He served there 38 years until his death. Although an eloquent preacher to non-Christian audiences, he is best remembered as the founder of the Anti-Opium League.
The league sought to publish facts about the curse of opium and mobilize public opinion against its trade. To this end Dubose enlisted the support of President Theodore Roosevelt, the U.S. Congress, and the International Opium Commission. Success came in 1906 when the British Parliament declared the trade “morally indefensible.” A petition signed by over a thousand China missionaries was presented to the emperor. An imperial edict, following verbatim the petition Dubose had drafted, prohibited its trade and use. He was honored in Suzhou by the erection of a stone tablet and in the United States by being elected moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church, U.S. (Southern) in 1891
Duncan, D’Arcy Paul (1846-1921) Spartanburg, 3rd Class. Farmer in Spartanburg Co. Railroad commissioner of SC.
His obituary found in The State 11 September 1921: Col. D’Arcy Paul Duncan, a former member of the state railroad commission, died at his residence, 2596 Divine street, at 12:30 o’clock yesterday morning after an illness of only a few days. Colonel Duncan was 75 years old and had been a resident of Columbia since 1904, when he severed his connection with the railroad commission. A youthful soldier during the closing days of the Confederate war, for many years a successful planter, a public official of Union county, a former member of the state railroad commission, a former president of the State Fair association, secretary and later manager of the Alliance exchange-these and other positions and services had made Colonel Duncan one of the best known men in South Carolina, his death causing profound sorrow throughout the state. Colonel Duncan comes of a family in which high and scholarly achievement is a tradition. He was a brother of the late Bishop William W. Duncan of the Methodist Episcopal church, South. Another brother, the late James Armstrong Duncan, was also a Methodist minister and for many years was also president of Randolph-Macon college. His third brother, now also dead, was Maj. D. R. Duncan of Spartanburg, a Confederate veteran, well known as a lawyer and as a railroad president, having served for four years as the president of the Spartanburg & Asheville railroad. His father, David Duncan, was a native of County Donegal, Ireland, a graduate of the University of Edinburgh and one of the leading Southern educators. Coming to America in 1817, he served for nearly 20 years as principal of the Norfolk academy. From 1835 to 1854 he was professor of ancient languages in Randolph-Macon college, leaving Randolph-Macon college to become professor of ancient languages in Wofford college, which had just been founded. Col. D’Arcy P. Duncan was born in Mecklenburg county, Virginia, in 1846 and was only eight years old when his family moved to Spartanburg. Here he was educated, attending Wofford college until the partial closing of that institution in 1863. A young man at the time, he was enrolled as a student in the Citadel, entering the Confederate army of defense as a member of the Charleston cadets of state troops to serve on James Island and vicinity until the end of the conflict. In 1867 Colonel Duncan married Miss Carrie C. Gist, daughter of former Governor W. H. Gist, moving to a plantation in Union county ten miles from the town of Union on the Tyger river near the Laurens county line. Colonel Duncan was always a pioneer in the introduction of progressive agricultural methods and it was his prominence as a planter that brought him his election in 1881 as president of the State Agricultural and Mechanical society, managing the annual state fair. Since leaving the office of president of the society in 1888 Colonel Duncan has remained as an ex-officio member of the executive committee of the society. Colonel Duncan made his debut into politics in 1876, when he was elected a member of the board of county commissioners of Union county. It was just at the period of restored white rule and a result of the carpetbag regime the county was heavily burdened with debt. When he left the office in 1880 provision had been made for the repayment of every dollar of debt. Two years later Colonel Duncan was appointed by Governor Thompson to full the unexpired term of Governor Jeter as a member of the state railroad commission. For nearly 23 years Colonel Duncan was connected with the commission, serving until 1894 as a member and then remaining for 11 more years as secretary of the commission. Colonel Duncan became a resident of Columbia in 1904 and for a number of years after severing his connections with the railroad commission he represented some of the local railroad companies, giving up all business in 1918 to enjoy a well earned retirement. Colonel Duncan’s first wife died in 1876 just when he was entering public affairs and in 1881 he was married for the second time, his second wife being Miss Kate Richardson, the daughter of Representative John S. Richardson of Sumter. By the first marriage the following children survive: Mrs. R. P. Barry of Union, Mrs. James R. Coggeshall of Darlington and William Gist Duncan of Union. By the second marriage four children were born, namely: Mrs. Henry N. Eden, Mrs. Leroy Reeves, Mrs. Edward J. Brennen, Jr., and James A. Duncan. The son, a graduate of the University of South Carolina, now is an assistant tutor at Harvard university. The funeral will be conducted from the residence at 2596 Divine street at 5 o’clock this afternoon, the Rev. Robert F. Morris, pastor of the Shandon Methodist church, being in charge of the services. Interment will be in Elmwood cemetery. Serving as pall bearers will be: Active: E. D. Easterling, E. J. Brennen, C. P. Davis, A. C. Carson, Albert Douglas and U. R. Brooks, Jr. Honorary: W. A.

Hagood, Leland Lee (1846-1890) Barnwell, 3rd Class. Prior service as courier on Gen. Micah Jenkins’ staff. Insurance agent in Columbia.
Found in the book, Meet Your Grandfather, A Sketch Book of the Hagood-Tobin Family, by Gen. Johnson Hagood, snipits from the chapter beginning on page 39: Lee Hagood, son of Dr. James O’Hear Hagood and Indiana M. Allen, his wife, was born in Barnwell Village, S. C., October 31st 1846. He received his early education at Barnwell Academy, from which he went to Hillsboro Military Academy in North Carolina. This school having been closed on account of the war, he returned to Barnwell and was preparing to go to the Citadel in Charleston; but hearing that his brother, Jim Hagood, a Captain in the First South Carolina volunteers, was passing through Blackville (ten miles distant) enroute to Tennessee, he went there and boarded the train, only to find that Hagood’s Company was on a different section. He made his way however to the Brigade Commander General Micah Jenkins, a friend of the family, who upon Lee’s earnest solicitation, which the General described as irresitable, kindly permitted him to join his staff as orderly, and took him to Chicamauga where he was mounted, given a uniform, and acted as courier during the campaign…Lee remained with General Jenkins throughout the Tennessee campaign, and then under the persuasion of (his brother) Jim, only two years older but a veteran, he returned to Barnwell and went directly to the Citadel where he reported in his Confederate uniform…..After the war, Lee returned to Barnwell, where he undertook the rehabilitation of Cypress, one of his father’s plantations…After five years on the plantation Lee went into the insurance business, and two years later (December 14, 1871), married Kathleen Rosa Tobin, daughter of General John E. Tobin of a nearby plantation. He became general agent for the Southern Life Insurance Company….At the time of his death, he was the state manager of the Valley Mutual Life Insurance Company of Virginia…Lee took an active part in the political campaign of 1876 which overthrew the Negro-Carpetbagger government of South Carolina. He was never a candidate for public office, but was one of the junior leaders in Hampton’s Red Shirt Brigade….It was Thompson (Hugh S. Thompson) who appointed Lee a Colonel on the Governor’s staff….Lee Hagood died on a Christmas night, or rather early in the morning of December 26, 1890, as result of an accidental gunshot wound. He was buried in the family graveyard at Short Staple Plantation, near his brother.

The Tri-Weekly Herald, Newberry, SC, March 28, 1865
We regret to record the death of a noble youth, Cadet T.A. Johnson, who departed this life at Spartanburg on 28th inst. of brain fever. His remains reached home Sunday and were buried in the Newberry Cemetery yesterday afternoon. An hour before the corpse arrived, his father received a letter written by the deceased a few days before he was taken sick. The letter was cheerful in tone—describing the march of the boys and expressing the hope of soon again meeting kind, familiar faces….Tommie was near home…when alas! for frail mortality!
