Colone Stephen Madison Boykin a veteran from the Mexican War was with the Palmetto Regiment and during the War Between the States served with the 20th South Carolina Volunteer Infantry. Eventually, following the death of Colonel Lawrence M. Keitt at 2nd Cold Harbor in Virginia, he became Colonel of the regiment for a short time. At the Battle of Cedar Creek or Fisher's Hill in Virginia on October 19, 1864, he was captured along with many other Confederate Soldiers and became a Prisoner Of War where he remained until the end.

After a long search for his grave, I found it this year (2010). It is located on private property in Lee County, South Carolina. I would like to respect the property owner by not giving the exact location, but I have provided here a video showing all that is there.
