Robert Young Rudicil, M.D., died at his residence, at Tryon Factory, near Summerville, Ga., December 24, 1912. He was born at Spartanburg, S.C., April 8, 1832, and was educated at Golightly's, receiving a good classical and English education. He studied medicine under Dr. W.P. Compton, and graduated at the Medical College of South Carolina in 1855.

Comrade Rudicil entered the Confederate army as a member of Company B, 9th Georgia Regiment of Infantry, Bartow's Brigade. Soon after his enlistment he was commissioned surgeon and assigned to the 6th Georgia Cavalry, Col. Jack Hart commanding. This regiment served under General Forrest until after the battle of Chickamauga, when it was transferred to Wheeler, serving with his corps until the surrender of Gen. Joseph E. Johnston's army at Greensboro, N. C., in May, 1865. He was wounded at Campbellsville, Tenn., the day after General Kelley was killed, about September 5, 1864. In 1901 he was surgeon general on the staff of General Wood 9th Georgia Brigade, U. C. V., and was a member of the Association of Medical Officers of the Army and Navy of the Confederacy from its organization. He was devoted to the cause of the Confederacy, and was esteemed and loved as a general practitioner of medicine and surgery. He represented Chattooga County several years in the State legislature, the last two years of his political life in the Senate. His second wife and two sons survive. He was a devout member of the Presbyterian Church and a Royal Arch Mason.
