Lieut. W.A. Mulloy of Cheraw
Killed in Action
Special to The State.
Cheraw, Nov. 8.-It was learned this morning that Lieut. W. Alsobrooks[sic] Mulloy of the Cheraw company (the Company I.S.C.N.G.,)
had been killed in action on October 17. He was a splendid man, with a promising future. He received his military training at the Citadel,
and graduated from the department of pharmacy, Charleston Medical College, and followed that profession in Cheraw ever since.
He had a chance of promotion some months ago, but was so attached to the boys of his company that he declined promotion rather than
leave his company. He was a member of the Cheraw Masonic bodies, and was one of Cheraw’s most popular young men.

Note: The date of death in the article was incorrectly reported. U.S. government death records and a marker placed by his family at
the Old Saint Davids Episcopal Church Cemetery in Cheraw, S.C. corroborate Lt. Mulloy’s date of death as 8-Oct-18.
