Capt. Carey Melfus Vise (left) and brother John Earl Bomer Vise. This is the notation on the original photo. It has been suggested that this is not John but one of the other brothers, Francis Read Vise. C.M. Vise, son of John Simpson Vise and Esther Vise, both of Spartanburg, S.C., was born in 1846 in the Spartanburg District of South Carolina. He married South Carolina childhood sweetheart Sarah A. Young in December 1867. C.M. entered into Confederate Service at the age of 16 years. He came to Scott Co. in the winter of 1867 where he settled and farmed. He held several county offices during his lifetime including Sheriff, Tax Assessor and Justice of the Peace.
