PERRY HAMILTON TISON Confederate Veteran S.C.
Confederate Veteran, March, 1919.
PERRY HAMILTON TISON was born in old Beaufort Dist., S.C., May 2, 1839 and died in Allendale, Barnwell Co., S.C., Nov. 18, 1918. He entered the Confederate army throughly equipped, having been educated at the State Military Academy at Charleston but on account of physical disabilities he was forced to take an honorable discharge soon after going into service. He served as major in the 12th Regiment, South Carolina State Troops, under his brother, Col. JOHN A. TISON, who commanded the regiment.
In his death is recognized the loss of a devoted husband and father, an exemplary citizen of the old type and a loyal friend. No truer heart ever beat for the cause of the Southern Confederacy and through the long years of his life he adhered to his allegiance.
He is survived by his wife, who was MISS SALLIE E. ALLEN, of Allendale, S.C. and by 3 daughters and one son- namely; MRS. LUCY A. TISON, MRS. J. GAILLARD STONEY, MISS M. AGNES TISON and DR. HUGH R. TISON, all of Allendale, S.C., the county seat of the new county of Allendale.
