    This was copied out of a history of SC, I can’t remember who wrote it.

    Great story!

    People like this built our country and yet we're about to give it away through the machinations of those who aren't fit to even serve those wretched people of the past....

    Your welcome, it is also part of our country’s history.

    My first ancestor to this country came to Henrico County, Virginia on June 1st 1636 from England. He was a representative in the House of Burgess from 1644-1652.
    In 1654 he called the speaker of the house a Devil. He had to apologize on his knees and pay a fine. In 1677 a jury found him guilty of uttering diverse mutinous words and fined him 10,000 pounds of tobacco. After considering his age(60's)the court reduced the fine to 6,000 pounds of dressed pork. At the time of his death he owned 1,100 acres in Henrico County Va. including Varina Plantation.

    Nice read! I know my family names are Scottish and English and Irish, and approximately when the Irish and Scottish parts/people immigrated, but not much more until they settled in Sullivan's hollow area of MS and the Ovett, MS area. It must be nice to have such detail.
