City Directories and History: 1913 – W.B. Deloach, 1925 – W.B. Deloach, 1941 – Faith Deloach, 1964 – John K. Deloach
This house was built by General Joseph Brevard Kershaw, a Confederate officer, well-known local attorney, and a descendant of the founder of Camden. There is some speculation that the core of the house was originally a wing of the Joshua Reynolds house (see No. 20), and was moved about 1842 to the Lyttleton Street location. General Kershaw extended the house on each side and added the first and second stories. Many of the hand-blown window panes have survived the years.

Faith, their daughter continued residing here and working for her father’s law firm Kirkland & DeLoach.
