Thank you for your reply and for the links to those excellent websites. My gggf, John McCuen Rowe, was born 10/4/1830 in the Summerton area of South Carolina. He died 4/6/1882 in Summerton, and is buried in St Paul's cemetary. While in service, he served as a gunsmith at Pocotaligo. I have copies of documents from the archives (letters, etc) in which Capt Skinner requests his return to Co H as they prepare to move to Virginia in 1864. A copy of another document (probably written to help his widow get a pension) states: "John M. Rowe of Skinners Cavalry during War of the Sixties as his command was often near my regiment. He was a gallant cavalry man with Gen Wade Hampton and was conspicuous in Battles Yellow Tavern and Hawes Shop. He was a warful armorer as he often kept the carbines in good order. He was faithful and useful in all duties he was called to perform and was held in high esteem by his command".
I couldn't find for sure that the 5th SCC arrived in time for the Battle of Yellow Tavern, but they were at Hawes Shop. I don't think the muster rolls were kept after October 1864. I do believe he was at the surrender. Thanks again!!
