I share your wish to find out something about the life and lineage of Charles Hiott, s/o Arthur II and Mary (maiden name unknown) Rayfield Hiott.His middle initial may have been "W" (more about this below).
IGI states that a "Charles Hiott of SC married 'Ann' abt 1842", but this is vague and a bit early for our Charles?
The 1850 census listed a Charles Hiott, 21 year old farmer (age = about right) living on the farm of Messick and Sarah Ann Hiott. Is this our Charles? Messick is thought to have been another son of Arthur Senior, which would have made him an uncle to Charles W. Not sure.
It seems unlikely that someone in their mid-thirty's would have escaped the universal draft of the Confederacy in the 1860s.There was a Charles M. Hiott that was a private in Company A, 3rd SC Cav., who survived the war and died at age 71 (don't know what year), but that "M" doesn't fit.
Another 'tidbit':Arthur II drew up a Trust Deedin 1877, 4 years before his death, spelling out 'who would get what' at his death.This document mentions that hischildren by Mary Rayfield were not included because "they have all been otherwise provided for".He named these children, and "Charles W." was on the list, so Charles was still alive in 1877.
In the notations of Rev. D.W.Hiott, undated but probably written around or just after 1900, only Rev. Wm. R. remained alive of the Rayfield set, so Charles W. must have died sometime between 1877 and 1908 (the year that Wm. R. died).If Private Charles M. = Charles W., then the dod would be about 1899 or 1900, but this is speculation.
Did Charles ever marry?Were there any children? Did he remain unmarried?Did he, as had so many others, move West?
