from https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/1st_Regiment,_South_Carolina_Mounted_Militia:

Martin's Company (also known as Calhoun Minute Men or Red Oak Rangers) - many men from Barnwell District/County and Beaufort District (County).

Joseph H. Crute, Jr.'s book, "Units of the Confederate States Army", contains no history for this unit. This regiment most likely transferred into another regiment or was combined with another regiment to create a new regiment, or is another name for an existing regiment. Looking at the service records of the soldiers may give clues to the different regiments they may have served in.

Footnote.com lists this regiment being in service. It was also known as Martin's Regiment Mounted Men and Martin's Mounted South Carolina Militia. This regiment may have existed only a short time when it was transferred into another regiment or was combined with another regiment to create a new regiment. Looking at the service records of the soldiers may give clues to the different regiments they may have served in.
