CHANGE OF TOWNSHIPS

A copy of the following survey is on file at the Darlington County Historical Commission. Source- DARLINGTON NEWS, May 9, 1878

(The Editor of The Darlington Flag notes: "Did you ever wonder why the townships in the 1870 Census of Darlington County sounded a little foreign? The townships were named by the Reconstruction government then in political control of the county. In 1878 the county commissioners voted to change the names of the "Reconstruction townships" to more familiar sounding names. The list below may help you when you work with the 1870 Census in the future.")

Office of County Commissioners,

Darlington C. H., S.C. May 6, 1878

By virtue of authority in us vested by act of General Assembly entitled, "An Act to authorize County Commissioners to change the names of the Townships in their respective Counties," and approved February 18th, 1878, we do hereby make the following changes in the names of Townships in this County as follows, to wit:
Boston----------Township changed to Lisbon

1822 GRAND JURY REPORT

We the grand jurors for the District of Darlington present that the Court House of the Said District is in a most ruinous and dilapidated condition. The windows are without Shutters or glass and the whole building is so inconvenient in its construction as to be incapable of such repairs and alterations, as will render it sufficiently commodious and convenient for the accomidation of the Court, and the necessary public Offices. We present also the ruinous condition of the Goal. The Flours are rotten, the roof partly blown off- and the walls not sufficiently strong to secure any persons confined in it.

We therefor recommend to the Legislature the appropriation of a sufficent Sum of Money to build a New Court House and Goal.

He married Margaret Caroline Byrd, the daughter of Redden and Hanna Ritter Scott of Craven County, N.C. J. M. Carter enlisted in the 14th Regiment of S.C. Infantry, one of six Carter brothers who enlisted in the Confederate States Army. Lt. Sidney Carter, brother of J.M. Carter, wrote shortly after the battle of Chancellorsville, VA about the death of "Mack." "Tell Caroline [he] died like a soldier with an immortal [torn] for it was given up that he acted more gallant than any man in the 14th Regiment. I got his knapsack and hat, also his pocketbook. He gave that to the Captain before he went into the fight and told him if he got killed to give it to his wife and tell her to live off of it. He was buried by the prison corps and several saw him after [he was] dead but I did not. Giles said he would not have known him but for his clothes...." [DEAR BET: THE CARTER LETTERS. 1861-1863, edited by Bessie Mell Lane, page 93. We are grateful to Mr. Edwin B. Fountain -...GA..for sharing the above letter with us. Mr. Fountain has donated the letter from J.M. Carter to the Darlington County Historical Commission. Mr. Fountain is a descendant of James Morgan Carter.

Editor's Note-The Soldiers Board of Relief was created by the S.C. General Assembly in December, 1861. The board was authorized to levy an annual tax on each tax district and to distribute the money to families of soldiers who had volunteered for S.C. or Confederate service. General state records exist in the records of the Comptroller General of S.C. concerning this board, but no state records concerning individual disbursements have been located. Horace F. Rudisill, Darlington County Historian, some years ago located the records of the Darlington Soldiers Board of Relief in private hands. This is the ninth report in our series.

DARLINGTON CIRCUIT, METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH
MEMBERSHIP ROLLS, 1840

EDITOR’S NOTE- This is the fourteenth in a series of Darlington Circuit Methodist Church membership rolls that we have published. In this issue, the roll of Hebron Methodist Church is presented. Hebron Methodist Church is located in present-day Lee County, in the Stokes Bridge Community. Hebron Methodist Church was first known as Skinner’s (Meeting House). The Skinner family has been associated with the Methodist Church from its earliest days. Edward Skinner’s name appears in the records of the Santee Circuit as a Local Preacher as early as 1806. Edward’s son, Asa Skinner, also became a Local Preacher and served Methodists in Darlington District prior to moving to Alabama. Skinner’s Meeting House is first mentioned in the records of the Lynches Creek Circuit in 1824. On 19 May 1838, Lemuel Skinner, brother of Edward Skinner, donated one acre of land ... "where the church now stands..." to the trustees of Hebron. These trustees included Alexander Skinner, Asa Woodham, Makensa Mozingo, Lewis Hixon, and C.J. Kea. [Reference- Darlington County Deed Book N, pages 143-144] Hebron United Methodist Church survives to the present day. In its ancient cemetery are buried many of the pioneers of Darlington County Methodism.

GEORGE KING’S REVOLUTIONARY WAR SERVICE
AFFIDAVIT OF MARTIN DEWITT 

George King- Alabama
Suspended
Ct. 27 Feb. 1837 to
Hon. L.H. Lewis

House of Reps.

Feby. 23rd 1837

Mr. Ja. Edwards-

Sir-

Enclosed I send you the affidavit of Martin Dewitt, proving the services of George King as a revolutionary soldier. Mr. King has applied through me for his pension, & his application was rejected on the ground, that he did not specify the length of service. Officers &c. Those papers have been lost & Mr. King has moved to Dale County, it will be almost impossible for the old Man ever to get their reviewed [?] as it is one of those poor, sparsely settle counties covering a large territory, where there are but few Post Offices & he is not only a very infirm, but a very ignorant old man & one who will never have the energy or intelligence to get them made out. Is there not sufficient evidence by memorial [?] in your office that his papers have been presented & that those papers with the evidence now furnished would have entitled him to his pension. If so, would there be any impropriety in granting the pension in the absence of those papers.

                                                                                           Yr. obdt. sert.
                                                                                           Dixon Harris

State of South Carolina }
Darlington District         }
    Before me one of the Justices of the quorum of the State aforesaid, personally appeared Martin Dewitt and made oath, that in the time of the Revolutionary War, he was acquainted with George King formerly of Darlington District in the State of South Carolina now said to be residing in the State of Alabama, that this deponent served in the Revolutionary War altogether two years & eight months. That he served one campaign with the Said George King in the American army under the command of General Marion. That he does not now recollect the date but that he thinks it was in the year 1781--it was during the time the British occupied Charleston, that when this deponent knew the said George King in the service he was a good soldier. This deponent further saith that Col. Lemuel Benton, Major John Standard, Capt. Charles Dewitt the uncle of this deponent were the officers under which he served. And he thinks that the said George King Served under the same officers. This deponent further Saith that since the Revolutionary War, he has been well acquainted with the said George King & that he has uniformly Sustained an excellent moral character.

Sworn to before me      }                                                                   Martin Dewitt

 JURY LISTS, 1862

EDITOR’S NOTE- It’s not unusual to publish a jury list from Darlington District. What is a little unusual about the lists which follow is the notations made beside certain names. In some cases the potential juror is "Dead." Many jurors have the notation "Army" or just "A" beside their name in reference to the events sweeping the nation as it entered the second year of the War Between the States. Several jurors live outside the boundaries of Darlington District as indicated by the names of other districts, "Sumter" or "Chesterfield." Still others are simply listed as "sick." An "x" marks many jurors names probably indicating some type of check off.

MIGRATION PATTERS
ANSON COUNTY, NC TO DARLINGTON COUNTY, SC
PART II (Partial Reprint for WEB page)

EDITOR’S NOTE- The Winter, 1999 issue of the DARLINGTON FLAG published several items submitted by Steve Bailey from the Anson County, NC newspaper the MESSENGER – INTELLIGENCER. These newspaper “clippings” were dated between January 1890 and December 1891. Each item concerned news relating to Anson County, NC natives who had migrated to Darlington County, SC. Many of these individuals worked in the textile mills of Darlington County. Steve Bailey has again provided us with additional items from this newspaper, which we present here. Again, we are thankful for Steve’s sharp eye and his willingness to share these items with us.

DOTS FROM McFARLAN

Wilson Teal, son of Mr. Dock Teal, formerly of Anson, but now of Darlington, is visiting his father.

[Issue of 19 December 1889, page 3]

Died, in Darlington, S.C., on the 16th inst., of typhoid fever, Mrs. Mollie Morton, wife of Daniel Morton. Mrs. Morton was a native of Anson, but moved to Darlington about four months ago to work in the factory at that place.

[Issue of 25 December 1890, page 3]

Mr. L.H. Covington, of Cheraw, S.C. was married on the 18th inst., to Miss Alice Nettles, of Darlington Co., S.C. Mr. Covington has many friends and relatives in Anson who send congratulations.

[Issue of 8 January 1891, page 3]

Our clever young friend, Dr. J.A. Gaddy, has left McFarlan and removed to Hartsville, S.C., where he will practice his profession. We wish him much success.

[Issue of 3 March 1891, page 3]

Darlington, S.C. suffered a very great loss by fire last Saturday night. The entire west side of the public square was burned, the loss amounts to over $150,000. The building occupied by Messrs. W.H. Mills and P.B. Allen, late of Wadesboro, but who are now running a bar at Darlington, was burned, but they had removed their goods from the building before the fire reached it. 

[Issue of 23 February 1892, page 3]

A SAD DEATH

Dr. John A. Gaddy died suddenly at his home at Hartsville, S.C., last Friday night. The particulars, as we have learned them, are as follows: Dr. retired to bed Friday night in his usual health, but shortly after doing so remarked to his wife that he was suffering from nausea. He attempted to rise and as he did so he heaved once, and a great stream of blood gushed from his mouth. He fell back upon the bed and died almost immediately. It is supposed that the hemorrhage was caused by the bursting of a blood vessel. Dr. Gaddy’s death is a peculiarly sad one. About two years ago he received his diploma and settled at McFarlan, this county, for the practice of his profession. He stayed at McFarlan about one year and then married Miss Mary Flake, daughter of the late Flavel B. Flake, Esq., of this county, after which he moved to Hartsville, S.C.

Dr. Gaddy was the eldest son of Mr. J.T. Gaddy, of Ansonville township and was about 24 years old at the time of his death. He was a most estimable young man and was having excellent success as a physician when the summons of death came so suddenly to him.

His remains were brought to this county and were interred in the old Gaddy family burying ground last Sunday. His parents and grief stricken young wife have the sympathy of all in their sore bereavement.

[Issue of 11 August 1892, page 3]

Mrs. Burch, of Darlington county, S.C. is visiting her son, Mr. E.J. Burch.
