Orangeburg woman who aided Union soldiers

I am researching the Union Army's march through SC. In two diaries kept by Union soldiers I've found reference to an Orangeburg District woman who lived about 14 miles west of Orangeburg on the Old Orangeburg Road between the forks of the Edisto. She was said to be of help to escaping Union prisoners and to Union soldiers on their northward march.

Has any one heard about her? She may be the woman I have read about who aided all soldiers, Confederate and Union, but I suspect she was a Unionist to begin with.

She was definitely at this location in February, 1865.
I would really appreciate any information about who she is.
