Obituary from the CONFEDERATE VETERAN, Vol. 29, No. 5 (May 1921), page 189.
Gen. David Cardwell, U. C. V.

Gen. David Cardwell, who died at a hospital in Columbia, S. C, on February 19, 1921, following a brief illness, enjoyed the distinction of having been in continuous service of the Southern Railway and its predecessor lines for over fifty-two years. He started his career at Columbia, S. C, on January 9, 1869, as auditor for the Columbia and Augusta Railroad, and remained at Columbia during his entire service, having been assistant general freight agent at that point for ten years prior to his death.

David Cardwell served with distinction as a private in the Confederate army, going into the service when sixteen years of age. He was under fire sixty-seven times; was at Seven Pines, the Wilderness, Cold Harbor, Five Forks, Appomattox, and many other engagements.

After the war he was made a Colonel eleven times, and several months ago was made Brigadier General in command of the First Brigade of South Carolina Confederates. He was a member of the famous Stuart Horse Artillery, McGregor's Battery, of which he was justly proud. He was in his seventy-fifth year.

He married Miss Anna Cook Sinton, of Richmond, Va., who survives him with the following children: David Cardwell, Jr., of Greenville, S. C.; Edward S. Cardwell, Thomas Davant Cardwell, and Mrs. Frank M. Durham, all of Columbia, S. C.
