Papers by Quattlebaum family ( )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Quattlebaum's bother-in-law, Bolivar Jones, joined the Palmetto Regiment and left for Mexico in Jan. 1847. In a letter, 3 June 1847 (from Puebla, Mexico), addressed to his sister, Elizabeth Watson (in Edgefield District, S.C.), Bolivar described his bout with "fever," from which he had suffered for three or four weeks: "I am in a hospital where there is all sorts of men and various diseases... Three men have died to day of our regiment, one of our company." He also complained that he had received only three letters since leaving South Carolina, and of those, two were from Paul [Quattlebaum]; "A poor private stands a bad chance to hear any news here and I am unable to give you any with regard to the war." Bolivar died 2 July 1847 of typhoid fever. Lieutenant [John] Morangne reported on Bolivar's final weeks in a letter to the family, noting that in May, Bolivar had volunteered to go with a small party from Jalapa to Vera Cruz to bring back uniforms for the regiment: "It was a bold enterprise, as the whole road was beset with Guerrilla parties of the enemy, but the cool & ardent spirit evinced by Bolivar gained him the applause of all those who accompanied him... unfortunately, however, he returned from the expedition with a violent attack of fever.... we have lost more than two hundred men since our landing at Vera Cruz & they are still dying rapidly." The Quattlebaums named a son, born in 1849, Bolivar Jones to honor his uncle
