General Notes: Husband - Brigadier General John H. PEARSON, II, RS-SC

John PEARSON Jr., born May 30, 1743, a son of John PEARSON and Mary RAIFORD. An historical marker, numbered U-2, on Bluff Road, S. C. Route 48 where it crosses Mill Creek states;
"EARLY RICHMOND COUNTY SETTLEMENTS: FIRST SETTLEMENTS MADE ABOUT 1740 ON THIS CREEK, ORIGINALLY CALLED RAIFORD'S, NOW MILL CREEK. HOWELL'S FERRY ACROSS CONGAREE RIVER BELOW CREEK'S MOUTH WAS USED 1756 THROUGH THE REVOLUTION. JOHN PEARSON (1743-1819 BORN NEAR HERE WAS FIRST KNOWN WHITE CHILD BORN IN BOUNDS OF PRESENT COUNTY."
( "A guide to Columbia: South Carolina's capital city" by Jane Kealhofer Simons, page 85)

John married his first cousin, Sarah RAIFORD, a niece of his mother and daughter of Philip RAIFORD III and Judith WESTON.

John entered the Revolutionary War at the first alarm and rose to the rank of Major, serving under Francis MARION. . He later received the rank of General in the South Carolina militia. His Will is recorded in Fairfield County, Camden S.C. Will Book 6/23/1815--11/18/1819. His Revolutionary War pay record is in "Stub Indents" , Vol. O-Q, p. 32: "No. 163. Lib. O Issued the 2d April 1785 to Mr. John PEARSON for One hundred and ninety three pounds three Shillings and one penny Sterling for 225 days duty in the Militia as Captain and Major - And for Sundries supplied for Militia USE in 1781 - and 1782 - Vr. account audited & c____ Principal 193..3..1 Interest - - - 13..10..4"

After the Revolution, John served in the third and the fourth General Assemblies of the South Carolina Legislature.

Published election returns for the South Carolina Legislature list: "Senator for Chester, Fairfield and Richland - John PEARSON. [South Carolina State Gazette,October 18, 1806]

Nothing is left of his home but scattered bricks, granite steps and cellar. On the crest of a hill at Parr Shoals, these ruins and a granite wall enclosing family graves are all that remain. (A Fairfield Sketchbook, Bolick, p 210).

From McMaster's History of Fairfield County, page 215-16: "General John PEARSON, eldest son of John P. (who was a native of Berkshire Co. England & early settled in Carolina) was born in what is now Richland County, SC, in 1743. Under the instructions of his father and with a little school education, he became a very good English scholar. He was, however, cut out for action, & devoted but very little time to the cultivation of letters. He was attentive to the main chance - acquired considerable money, purchased a few hands and a noble plantation on the Broad River, in Fairfield, where he fixed himself for life. At the commencement of the War, Mr. PEARSON was appointed Major of Volunteers (every Whig was a volunteer) and took the field under SUMTER. He did much service under the command of the Gamecock of the Revolution, and was sometimes dispatched on distant and perilous duty. He knew what it was to thirst, to starve, to sleep on the cold damp ground in pestilent swamps, & go in rags and tatters through the bitterness of winter. Major PEARSON finished his career with a high character for courage, activity, and conduct ; no officer of his grade carried with him to the walks of private life a higher & more affectionate regard of those he had commanded in days of peril and difficulty."
"The Fairfield people sent him perhaps oftener than one term to the Legislature when that body met in Charleston. On the re-organization of the Militia system in 1796, there was a vacancy for a Colonel's command in the newly constructed Fairfield regiment, & he was elected over Major TURNER; & subsequently attained the rank of Brigadier-General. In 1804 he was elected State Senator for the district of Fairfield, Richland, and Chester, & at the expiration of his senatorial term, he dropped all public employments, devoting the balance of his days to neighborly duties & the improvement of the estate. All through life, he was the blessed peacemaker and the adjuster of difficulties. He reconciled, as with authority, husbands and wives who had become discontented, and dissatisfied parents, & children. No one who ever came to his Chancery, ever left it displeased, & all said, or thought or felt, 'blessed is the peacemaker'. He accumulated a large estate and exercised unlimited hospitality, and practiced a liberal charity. He died about 1820, in the 76th year of his age. The love of his country was the last glow that warmed his old heart."

There is a memorial to John PEARSON in Parr, Fairfield County, South Carolina.

Another biography appears in Biographical Dictionary of South Carolina Representatives, Vol. 3, page 543:
John PEARSON, son of John PEARSON (d. 1771?) and Mary RAIFORD, was born 30 May 1743 near the Congaree River. He settled on the Broad River in that area which became Fairfield District. Between 1785 and 1814, he obtained through grants some 13,992 acres in Camden District; furthermore, PEARSON, Timothy RIVES, and Philip PEARSON were granted as tenants in common 820 acres near the Broad River (1787). By the time of his death, he had become a successful planter and bequeathed six plantations amounting to 3,151 acres. An inventory of his estate revealed he owned 65 slaves.
During the American revolution, PEARSON served as a militia major under Thomas SUMTER. After the war, he continued military service as lieutenant colonel of the Fairfield Regiment (1796-1800) and brigadier general of the Eighth Brigade (1800-1806). Elected to the House, he represented the District between the Broad and Catawba Rivers in the Third (1779-1780)and Fourth (1782) General Assemblies. PEARSON also was a member of the State Senate, serving the election district of Fairfield, Chester and Richland Counties in the Seventeenth (1806-1808) and Eighteenth (1808-1809) General Assemblies. Other offices he held included tax inquirer and collector for both sides of the broad River (1766) and for the district Between the Broad and Catawba Rivers (1779, 1786) and commissioner, to contract for the opening of the Broad and Pacolet Rivers. He was a member of Mount Sion Society (1777).
On 21 May 1765, PEARSON wed his cousin Sarah RAIFORD, daughter of Philip (d. 1761?) and Judith RAIFORD. They were the parents of at least seven children: John Jr., Philip Raiford, Grace (m. B. V. LAKIN), Nancy (m. Thomson MAYO), Sarah (m. James ELKINS), Mary, (m. John McKEMIE) and Judith (m. George E. SMITH). Survived by his wife and children, John PEARSON died 25 October 1819 in Fairfield District.

A marker for General John PEARSON was visited by James F. McKemie of Macon, Georgia on May 27, 1970. In an article describing his search for the monument, he describes the marker as "faces north; is about 5 feet wide; 2 feet thick; 8 feet tall; perpendicular about 5 feet from ground on four sides, then tapers about 3 feet to top from sides; tapers about 1 1/2 feet to top from front and back. Bronze plate on back reads: 'Revolutionary Soldier 1775-1783" "Placed by the Richard Winn Chapter, D.A.R. 1934'"
The marker reads:

throughout the Revolution
rising to the rank of Major.

General Notes: Husband - Capt. John P. PEARSON

From Historical Collections of the Joseph Habersham Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution Vol I, page 130-132 : "John Pearson, an English gentleman of high rank, was born at Windsor, on the Thames, about 1690 and died at his estate, "Windsor Forest ", Fairfield District S.C. in 1760. He was educated for the British Navy . He had two sisters, one marrying a "Board" and the other marrying a "Coffin" . On the death of his father, he, disagreeing with a maternal uncle, came to this country, landing somewhere on the Jersey coast, intending to ship to the West Indies. Off the coast of Florida , the small boat in which he and a few companions were making the voyage, was captured by pirates. He managed to escape by leaping over the side of the vessel at night and swimming boldly to shore; was at once seized by the Spaniards and thrown into the old fort at St. Augustine where he lay for months in a dungeon. The prisoners were brought forth daily and long discussions held as to which horrible mode of death would be most suitable and most blood curdling. Sometimes a few would be tortured while the rest were held in reserve for something more awful. Finally, he escaped and laid for days in the adjacent marshes and at last made his way by rowboat to New Orleans. From there, he went to Charleston, South Carolina. This was an overland journey, taking two years. As he made his way slowly , from tribe to tribe, through unspeakable hardship and danger, John gained a knowledge of Indian language and affairs that was very valuable in later years. Reaching Charleston, he was introduced to Governor Robert Johnson, who, recognizing his superior intelligence and education, made John his private secretary. He was put in charge of all Indian transactions which were numerous. He became a captain in the Colonial Wars and surveyed the road from Charleston to Nashville and built Ft. Loudon, the first Anglo-American settlement in Tennessee." (He surveyed the site for Fort Loudon, I don't believe he actually built it. As an aside, this fort was too far from supply lines and other forts to be safe and three years later, Loudon was the site of a Cherokee siege and massacre of it's inhabitants. The fort has been partially restored and can be seen in Vonore, Tennessee, 29 miles SW of Knoxville. " Colonial Forts of South Carolina " Ivers p57)
The date of this adventure is a little hard to place. He gives his deposition on the conditions in St. Augustine to Judge Allein on October 20, 1727 and I assume that this occurred quickly after John Pearson returned to Charleston. Assuming it did take two years to walk from New Orleans to Charleston, and his trip to New Orleans took some months and his imprisonment was for several months, it must have occurred in 1724 1725. Searching the Spanish records (the Stetson Collection, St. Augustine Historical Society) , I find the following:
2 Nov 1725
From: Governor. D. Antonio de Bentivides, St Augustine
To: Crown
Tells of the arrival of seven Negro slaves from Carolina. The commission that went to Carolina to investigate the boundary line offered to compensate the owners of the slaves. However the English refused stating that the slaves were worth more than the Spaniards had offered and they were surprised at the position the Spaniards had taken from which very bad consequences could follow. He asks for instruction as to what to do when slaves escape to the Spaniards. He reminds Crown of the precedent set ion 1693 by purchase of Carolina slaves, asks for orders.
John Pearson in his deposition states that there were some escaped Carolina slaves present and the fact that Governor Antonio reminds the Crown of the last time this happened was 1693 suggests that this was an unusual occurrence. Circumstances point to John Pearson being captured in 1725, while the slaves were in St Augustine.
John moved to Richland County in 1741 or 1742 where he married Mary RAIFORD in 1742. They had the first white child born in the county, John II, born in 1743. He built his plantation, "Windsor Forest" near the Raifords. Here he spent most of his remaining years although he did own a place in Fairfield in which Mary lived after his death.
John was a Captain in Col. Pawley's regiment, " In the Congaree Forks Company" in 1757. He commanded a lieutenant, an ensign, 125 privates, 8 "alarm men " and 40 slaves.
In later life, John became very interested in the religious revival undergone by the Baptists and joined the church in 1764. He was a charter member of the Congaree Baptist Church.(Reference: History of Richland Co. S.C. by Green, p53)
Also from Historical Collections of The Joseph Habersham Chapter of the DAR, Vol. 1, page 131-2 is the following: " A curious antidote illustrating the manners of the time furnishes the closing chapter in this unique career. It seems that on one of his expeditions to the up-country, Capt. Pearson was presented by a hunter with a magnificent pair of antlers, which he at once sent to Governor Johnson, to whom he was greatly attached. But alas! The governor's lady was very gay and fond of attention from others than her lord, and the executive, recalling the affair in the "Merry Wives of Windsor", became morally offended at what he considered an insult, though such was not intended. Captain Pearson was dismissed from his service and retired, deeply chagrined, to his estates in Fairfield, where he spent his last days..."

There is an Alexander Pearson who was a ship's captain for Laurens in 1747 ( the ANN ) and another ship ( the PATIENCE ) was also in the fleet, suggesting some kinship with the family. Papers of Henry Laurens Vol 1 page ?.
There is an interesting letter in the scrapbook entitled "Indian war" from John Pearson to the Governor's secretary describing the precarious position that these early settlers were in.
He gives a deposition October 20, 1727 before Chief Justice Richard Allein regarding military conditions in St. Augustine a few weeks before in the privateer commanded by Signior Antonio. He says nothing further about himself. British Public Records of South Carolina (Ms., Vol. 19 pages 127-129)
He is mentioned in "History of North Carolina" by Wheeler. (Tuck Wilson)

The first group of settlers in what is now Richland County, South Carolina settled on Mill Creek [previously called Raiford's Creek] below the Bluff Road. George HAIG, as deputy surveyor, certified a tract of land containing 450 acres on January 6, 1741, for Philip RAIFORD; and three days later, for the same person, a tract of 300 acres adjoining the first. According to Green in his book, A HISTORY OF RICHLAND COUNTY, on page 27, the creek that ran through Philip's property was called Raiford's Creek up until the American Revolution; afterwards it became known as Mill Creek, because William HAY had built a mill on it shortly before 1750. John PEARSON arrived shortly after Philip RAIFORD and married Philip's daughter, Mary. Their son, John, Jr. born May 30, 1743, was possibly the first white child born within the limits of Richland County.

PEARSON, John - On April 25, 1742, John PEARSON married Mary RAIFORD, the daughter of Philip RAIFORD (II). In 1757, John, served in the Craven County Regiment as a captain in company known as "the Congaree Forks". John and Mary's children are:
1. John PEARSON born May 30, 1743, died October 25, 1819 and married his cousin, Sarah RAIFORD, on May 21, 1765. Sarah was born on August 25, 1745.
2. Philip PEARSON born June 7, 1746, died September 13, 1835, was married to Mary BUTLER who died on September 14, 1854 at the age of 89.
3. Mary Ann PEARSON married Thomas BOND on October 16, 1764.
4. Martha PEARSON born November 7, 1754, died around 1796, was married to John COOK who died around 1800.
5. Rachel PEARSON married Henry HANCOCK.
6. William PEARSON

"The Expansion of South Carolina 1729-1765" by Robert L. Meriwether, p. 59-60, tells the beginnings of the relationships between the Raiford, Pearson, and Howell families into which descendants of William O'DANIEL of Stafford County, Virginia married. James (O')DANIEL arrived here in the mid 1750s:
"Immediately below the shoals, the east bank of the Congaree widened out into a poorly drained bottom which is now regularly overflowed by the river. Two miles below the mouth of Jacksons Creek, later known as Gill Creek, and about four miles from the site of the Congaree garrison. Green Hill rose above high water, and the river bank for a short distance invited settlement. Here Philip JACKSON had two hundred and fifty acres surveyed in 1740; and on "Green Hill Path", which Haig traced upon the plat, he later built his house. Other plats were run out on the river bank in the early 'forties, despite the danger of high water. One four hundred acre stretch, crisscrossed by water courses, was surveyed in 1741 for Elihu BAKER, a resident on Ashley River ; it was bought by George HAIG, and on the plat appears a sketch, perhaps more of a prophecy than an achievement, of a "Rice Field". But the most desirable land in this district lay two miles east on the edge of the lowland. Here for several miles a level terrace of silt loam, fertile and easily cultivated, parallels the river. Raifords Creek, the present Mill Creek, enters this narrow strip about two miles below Gill Creek; it then begins an amazing series of turns and three miles farther, having traversed many times that distance, reaches the river bottom." In 1740 Richard JACKSON had four hundred acres surveyed at the head of this stretch, but his name was given to the stream farther north ; his headrights probably represented several slaves, for he had seven when he died in 1750. At the other end of the terrace, four miles away, Philip RAIFORD in 1742 and 1743 had two tracts surveyed and later acquired two others nearby, the total amounting to nearly thirteen hundred acres. John PEARSON, who was in Amelia Township in 1737, in 1742 married RAIFORD's daughter Mary, and bought a warrant for three hundred acres near the tract of his father-in-law. He proceeded to clear and cultivate the land, built a house and barn, and made his home there. The purchase of the warrant, however, merely extinguished the claim of the original applicant; the legal title he secured later on his own rights of three children and three slaves. On Haig's death PEARSON turned to surveying and became the most active of these enterprising developers of the back country. Following his business he moved up to Broad River about 1755, but after his bankruptcy in 1766 returned to the Congaree.
John FAIRCHILD, PEARSON's chief rival as surveyor, was evidently from the coast country. He had four tracts, eight hundred acres, surveyed on or near Raifords Creek between 1741 and 1745 and for a time lived there. By 1742 William HOWELL and, within a few years, Thomas and Arthur HOWELL had acquired tracts of land adjoining each other on the creek between PEARSON and RAIFORD. Thomas HOWELL's plat, like those of several of his neighbors, shows his house on the very edge of the high bank of the creek, and from his house to that of William the surveyor traced "an Avenue"."
"The visits of the Reverend Philip Mulkey of Fairforest Creek led to the forming of the Congaree Baptist Church in 1766, with John PEARSON, Isaac RAIFORD and about thirty others, chiefly late arrivals in the community, as the first members. The church was built in the same year on land given by William HOWELL, apparently part of the mill tract he acquired from William HAY." [Ibid, p. 65]
"The most important of the later settlers was the elder John Pearson, formerly of the Congarees, who was captain of the militia company of the Congaree forks in 1757 and appears to have been living then on Broad River. When he became bankrupt in 1766 and his thirteen hundred acres was advertised for sale, his home was on the west side of the river above the mouth of Crims Creek, where a high ridge rises from a narrow bottom and affords a splendid view of the valley. Two other former settlers of Raifords Creek Evan Rees and Philip Raiford, Junior had plats surveyed on the north side of the river ; the latter was living there, near Wilkinsons Creek, in 1755. [Ibid, p. 156-7]
"John Pearson's company "In the Congaree Forks" had 134 whites and 40 slaves; the company of James "Lassley" (Leslie see above, p. 148) on Broad River had 76 whites and 9 slaves; and that of Fink (whose first name is not given) on the south side of the Saluda, 40 whites." [Ibid, p. 156]
"On the east side of the Broad a handful of settlers from Pennsylvania, among them Thomas Owen, Jacob Canomore and Lawrence Free, joined by Richard Gregory, from the Wateree valley, with his father and brother, made the nucleus of two small Seventh-Day Baptist congregations of uncertain history and identity, organized probably about the same time. John Pearson, in the absence of an ordained minister, served both churches in the capacity of exhorter or lay preacher. Two letters of Pearson written in 1764 reveal his intense religious interest and activity. In his household he held prayers morning and evening, and on the fifth of May he announced "A Great Meeting" to be held on the next Friday, Saturday and Sunday to which he invited his Raifords Creek kin." [Ibid, p. 157]
Listed among the 28 forts established to protect settlers during the Cherokee War in the early 1760s are:
21. Pearson's (John), apparently on his own land on Broad River (Indian
Books, VI, 218; above, pp. 156-157).
23. Raiford's (Philip), Little River, Broad River (Indian Books, VI, 225;

General Notes: Wife - Mary RAIFORD

Mary RAIFORD was the daughter of Philip RAIFORD II and Martha WESTON. The RAIFORD family were supposed to have moved to Edgecombe County, North Carolina by 1710 and lived there until 1740. Mary RAIFORD is likely to have been born there.

Mary grew up in North Carolina and moved to Richland County with her parents in 1741. They had the first land in the county surveyed and were in the group of the first permanent settlers. Within about a year, she married another early settler, John PEARSON, an English mariner who was about 50 years old, if his birthday is correct. (He is old as he was a grown man when he was captured by the Spanish about 1725 but he might not be that old.)

They had five children born from 1743 to 1754. She outlived her husband by 29 years and is buried at her son's place in Fairfield District, "Bunker Hill". She is listed along with her son Philip PEARSON as providing supplies to Col. WASHINGTON and Col. MYDDLETON in June and August of 1781.

PEARSON, Mary is named in 1790 Census, Camden District, Fairfield County, South Carolina, page 20, as head of household with 2 males under 16, 3 females, and 4 slaves. [Series: M637 Roll: 11 Page: 157]

General Notes: Child - Brigadier General John H. PEARSON, II, RS-SC

John PEARSON Jr., born May 30, 1743, a son of John PEARSON and Mary RAIFORD. An historical marker, numbered U-2, on Bluff Road, S. C. Route 48 where it crosses Mill Creek states;
"EARLY RICHMOND COUNTY SETTLEMENTS: FIRST SETTLEMENTS MADE ABOUT 1740 ON THIS CREEK, ORIGINALLY CALLED RAIFORD'S, NOW MILL CREEK. HOWELL'S FERRY ACROSS CONGAREE RIVER BELOW CREEK'S MOUTH WAS USED 1756 THROUGH THE REVOLUTION. JOHN PEARSON (1743-1819 BORN NEAR HERE WAS FIRST KNOWN WHITE CHILD BORN IN BOUNDS OF PRESENT COUNTY."
( "A guide to Columbia: South Carolina's capital city" by Jane Kealhofer Simons, page 85)

John married his first cousin, Sarah RAIFORD, a niece of his mother and daughter of Philip RAIFORD III and Judith WESTON.

John entered the Revolutionary War at the first alarm and rose to the rank of Major, serving under Francis MARION. . He later received the rank of General in the South Carolina militia. His Will is recorded in Fairfield County, Camden S.C. Will Book 6/23/1815--11/18/1819. His Revolutionary War pay record is in "Stub Indents" , Vol. O-Q, p. 32: "No. 163. Lib. O Issued the 2d April 1785 to Mr. John PEARSON for One hundred and ninety three pounds three Shillings and one penny Sterling for 225 days duty in the Militia as Captain and Major - And for Sundries supplied for Militia USE in 1781 - and 1782 - Vr. account audited & c____ Principal 193..3..1 Interest - - - 13..10..4"

After the Revolution, John served in the third and the fourth General Assemblies of the South Carolina Legislature.

Published election returns for the South Carolina Legislature list: "Senator for Chester, Fairfield and Richland - John PEARSON. [South Carolina State Gazette,October 18, 1806]

Nothing is left of his home but scattered bricks, granite steps and cellar. On the crest of a hill at Parr Shoals, these ruins and a granite wall enclosing family graves are all that remain. (A Fairfield Sketchbook, Bolick, p 210).

From McMaster's History of Fairfield County, page 215-16: "General John PEARSON, eldest son of John P. (who was a native of Berkshire Co. England & early settled in Carolina) was born in what is now Richland County, SC, in 1743. Under the instructions of his father and with a little school education, he became a very good English scholar. He was, however, cut out for action, & devoted but very little time to the cultivation of letters. He was attentive to the main chance - acquired considerable money, purchased a few hands and a noble plantation on the Broad River, in Fairfield, where he fixed himself for life. At the commencement of the War, Mr. PEARSON was appointed Major of Volunteers (every Whig was a volunteer) and took the field under SUMTER. He did much service under the command of the Gamecock of the Revolution, and was sometimes dispatched on distant and perilous duty. He knew what it was to thirst, to starve, to sleep on the cold damp ground in pestilent swamps, & go in rags and tatters through the bitterness of winter. Major PEARSON finished his career with a high character for courage, activity, and conduct ; no officer of his grade carried with him to the walks of private life a higher & more affectionate regard of those he had commanded in days of peril and difficulty."
"The Fairfield people sent him perhaps oftener than one term to the Legislature when that body met in Charleston. On the re-organization of the Militia system in 1796, there was a vacancy for a Colonel's command in the newly constructed Fairfield regiment, & he was elected over Major TURNER; & subsequently attained the rank of Brigadier-General. In 1804 he was elected State Senator for the district of Fairfield, Richland, and Chester, & at the expiration of his senatorial term, he dropped all public employments, devoting the balance of his days to neighborly duties & the improvement of the estate. All through life, he was the blessed peacemaker and the adjuster of difficulties. He reconciled, as with authority, husbands and wives who had become discontented, and dissatisfied parents, & children. No one who ever came to his Chancery, ever left it displeased, & all said, or thought or felt, 'blessed is the peacemaker'. He accumulated a large estate and exercised unlimited hospitality, and practiced a liberal charity. He died about 1820, in the 76th year of his age. The love of his country was the last glow that warmed his old heart."

There is a memorial to John PEARSON in Parr, Fairfield County, South Carolina.

Another biography appears in Biographical Dictionary of South Carolina Representatives, Vol. 3, page 543:
John PEARSON, son of John PEARSON (d. 1771?) and Mary RAIFORD, was born 30 May 1743 near the Congaree River. He settled on the Broad River in that area which became Fairfield District. Between 1785 and 1814, he obtained through grants some 13,992 acres in Camden District; furthermore, PEARSON, Timothy RIVES, and Philip PEARSON were granted as tenants in common 820 acres near the Broad River (1787). By the time of his death, he had become a successful planter and bequeathed six plantations amounting to 3,151 acres. An inventory of his estate revealed he owned 65 slaves.
During the American revolution, PEARSON served as a militia major under Thomas SUMTER. After the war, he continued military service as lieutenant colonel of the Fairfield Regiment (1796-1800) and brigadier general of the Eighth Brigade (1800-1806). Elected to the House, he represented the District between the Broad and Catawba Rivers in the Third (1779-1780)and Fourth (1782) General Assemblies. PEARSON also was a member of the State Senate, serving the election district of Fairfield, Chester and Richland Counties in the Seventeenth (1806-1808) and Eighteenth (1808-1809) General Assemblies. Other offices he held included tax inquirer and collector for both sides of the broad River (1766) and for the district Between the Broad and Catawba Rivers (1779, 1786) and commissioner, to contract for the opening of the Broad and Pacolet Rivers. He was a member of Mount Sion Society (1777).
On 21 May 1765, PEARSON wed his cousin Sarah RAIFORD, daughter of Philip (d. 1761?) and Judith RAIFORD. They were the parents of at least seven children: John Jr., Philip Raiford, Grace (m. B. V. LAKIN), Nancy (m. Thomson MAYO), Sarah (m. James ELKINS), Mary, (m. John McKEMIE) and Judith (m. George E. SMITH). Survived by his wife and children, John PEARSON died 25 October 1819 in Fairfield District.

A marker for General John PEARSON was visited by James F. McKemie of Macon, Georgia on May 27, 1970. In an article describing his search for the monument, he describes the marker as "faces north; is about 5 feet wide; 2 feet thick; 8 feet tall; perpendicular about 5 feet from ground on four sides, then tapers about 3 feet to top from sides; tapers about 1 1/2 feet to top from front and back. Bronze plate on back reads: 'Revolutionary Soldier 1775-1783" "Placed by the Richard Winn Chapter, D.A.R. 1934'"
The marker reads:

WILL OF JOHN PEARSON South Carolina

From: "A Fairfield Sketchbook" by Brolick, page 210: "The ruins of his house," (he named it Bunker Hill) "located near Wilkersons Creek after leaving the Congerees, are still standing. His gardens were reputedly among the most lovely in the state, however nothing remains of them today. His son was Philip Edward PEARSON , the author of the "Pearson Manuscript" , Draper Collection: Sumpter M M S 16 VV 165-201." This is a 18th century history of Fairfield and the revolution that is worth reading. It is reprinted in McMaster's "History of Fairfield County" starting on page 205.


General Notes: Child - Lt. William PEARSON, RS

William PEARSON died intestate. Camden Will Book A, page 188. Referred to as "Lieutenant". The sale of his estate took place on 8 June 1784. He was likely a Lieutenant in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War.

"Benjamin Rawlinson served in the South Carolina Militia from Richland District during the American Revolution. He served with his brothers William, John, Richard and George. Benjamin served as a foot soldier under Lieutenant William Pearson October 19, 1781 to December 19, 1781 at Orangeburg, South Carolina."

NOTE: William Pearson in the above died intestate. This MAY NOT be the LW&T of William PEARSON, son of Capt. John PEARSON and Mary RAIFORD. It is presented here because of the location and time frame of the will in regard to the death of John & Mary's son, William.

The South Carolina Magazine of Ancestral Research
SCMAR, Volume II
Number 2, Spring, 1974
Early Wills of Camden District (Continued from Vol. 2, p.12.)

General Notes: Child - Martha Ann PEARSON

"Baptism after 1750" by Rev. John Ulrich Giessendanner provides:
"242 (1754 -- Baptized -- At Saxagotha -- At the - House of Mrs Elizabeth Mercier)- Edem Die et Loc (The same day and place)- Martha, Daughter of John & Mary PEARSON; born Novr 7th 1751. Susceptr. John HANDASYD, Ann, wife of- Nathaniel PARTRIDGE, & Mary, wife of William HAY" ( (in English) numbered as in Salley, http://www.xs4all.nl/~sail/orange/b240b246.html, showing a digital copy of the page.)

The Bible of John PEARSON of Camden, Fairfield County, South Carolina, transcribed in North Carolina - South Carolina Bible Records by Jeannette Holland Austin, records the birth of Martha Ann PEARSON as 7 November 1754. A. S. Salley, in the History of Orangeburg County, page 150, has her baptism 6 October, 1754, a month before Edwin Green in A History of Richland County gives the date of her birth. Green has her death in 1796, but it is not listed in the transcription of John's Bible. John and Martha COOK were living in Hancock County Georgia in 1796. She may be buried with her husband at Island Creek Cemetery, Hancock County, Georgia. The Giessendanner record above appears to settle the differences in transcriptions.

Martha Ann Pearson was born November 7, 1751 in Craven County, South Carolina. Her birth date was recorded in the baptismal records of Rev. John Ulrich Giessendanner. (The 1754 year for her birth may be from a misread of the number 1 written in an old style.)
Martha Ann was the second wife of John Cook. John was a widower with 3 young children, Burrill, Mary, and Sarah by Elizabeth Brown. John and Martha married about 1769 and had nine children: Elizabeth C. "Betsy", John, Jr., Grace, Phillip, Nathaniel Pearson, Martha Pearson, Patience, Henry, and Isaac Cook.

This excerpt of the Will of Martha Raiford Goodwyn lists the husband of her sister Mary Raiford as Phillip Pearson, indicating Capt. John P. Pearson was John Phillip Pearson.
"WILL Bk. TT 1774-1778 Pg. 268 Will of Martha GOODWYN of Craven Co. SC. lists on [sic, one?. RLD] daughter Martha EPPS. and sister Mary PEARSON, wife of Phillip PEARSON. Further lists Joseph REES, SR., Martha BOND under age. It also lists Martha epps GOODWYN as underage. Extr: John HOPSKINS: Issac RIVERS" [http://www.genealogyforum.com/gedcom/gedcom4a/gedr4104.ged]

The family is recorded in the 1790 census of Fairfield County, South Carolina. Not long after, they moved to Captain John Cook's Revolutionary War bounty lands in Hancock County, Georgia. Martha Ann died in Hancock County in 1796 and was buried in Island Creek Cemetery. Martha's and John's headstones were removed from Island Creek Cemetery before it was submerged in 1954 by the damming of the Oconee River between Hancock and Baldwin Counties, Georgia to create Lake Sinclair. Their headstones are now located in Shiloh Church Cemetery Old, Jenkinsville, Fairfield County, South Carolina, John's son Burell [sic] Cook is buried. A cenotaph at Find A Grave Memorial# 75888878 has a picture of Martha Ann's headstone. A note on this memorial citing "Fairfield County Cemeteries, Vol. 1, pg. 69" says the headstones were moved because of flooding by Lake Monticello, South Carolina, but Lake Monticello was not created until 1978.

On Find A Grave Memorial# 75888878 is a picture of Martha Pearson Cook's headstone located in Shiloh Church Cemetery Old, Jenkinsville, Fairfield County, South Carolina. The memorial notes that "Per the book Fairfield County Cemeteries Vol 1 pg 69: her stone was moved to Shiloh Methodist Cemetery because of Lake Monticello." It does not list where she is buried.

Martha FERNEY m John PEARSON, c. 1794, SC Posted by: Ann Reese Spencer (/cgi-genforum/email.cgi?823345183) Date: January 10, 2000: "Does anyone out there agree with this marriage? DAR has first wife of John PEARSON, born 1770, as Sarah HILL, however Edrington's History of Fairfield Co. SC says John PEARSON married 1. Nancy TURNEY (which I think is a misprint, and should be FERNEY. She was Ederington's cousin (he says) The only child of record for John PEARSON and Sara HILL was Moses Hill PEARSON, b. (c) 1822. John PEARSON also had a daughter, Judith, b. 17 Feb 1818, who married Arnold JOLLY. I believe she may have been born to Sarah Hill PEARSON also. I have been trying for years to straighten out this confusion of the wives, my ancestor is Martha Ann PEARSON b. about 1800 and married to James RUSH. I believe she is John PEARSON's daughter by Martha (Nancy) FERNEY. Any help out there, or comments?" (http://genforum.genealogy.com/ferney/messages/1.html)

General Notes: Wife - Mary PEARSON

Mary Pearson was the daughter of Philip P. Pearson and Lillian H. Crawford. She was born in october 1882 per the 1900 census. Her father died in March 1896.

On Monday evening at Memorial Hall the pupils of Mrs. Priest gave a delightful concert. While all distinguished themselves the palm was carried off by little Miss Mary Pearson, the talented 13-year-old daughter of Mrs. Phillip Pearson. The young lady is a niece of Mr. Lester Crawford, and inherited much of her musical talent from her gifted uncle, who is justly proud of her. Miss Pearson played several selections, the gem being Mason's "Movement Perpetual," which as the title indicates, calls for a perpetual movement of the right hand, a feat very defficult for much more experienced pianists.... [The St. Louis Republic, St. Louis, Missouri, Sunday, June 21, 1896, Section Four, Page 27 ]

From available records, Mary may not have married.

Mary Pearson, age 30, single, resident of St. Louis, Missouri, and her mother Lillian C. Pearson, age 60, passengers on the ship Noordam, arrived in New York from Rotterdam, Holland on 8 April 1915. ["New York, Passenger Arrival Lists (Ellis Island), 1892-1924," index, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/JJW8-MN5 : accessed 30 Jun 2013), Mary Pearson, 08 Apr 1915; citing Noordam, United States National Archives, Washington, D.C.]

In 1920, Mary Pearson, age 37, single, lives in the home of her mother, Lillian C. Pearson, in St. Louis, Missouri.

In 1940, Mary Pierson [sic], 57, single, born in Missouri, is a lodger in the household of Alice Breston. Mary is a saleswoman in a retail dress shop. On 1 April 1935, she resided in the same place.

He was killed in the late war while in command of his regiment, the 10th Alabama. He was brave, generous, affable, and altogether the old type of a Carolina gentleman, He is buried at the Presbyterian Church, Winnsboro." (History of Fairfield County, p. 78)

General Notes: Husband - Lt. William PEARSON, RS

William PEARSON died intestate. Camden Will Book A, page 188. Referred to as "Lieutenant". The sale of his estate took place on 8 June 1784. He was likely a Lieutenant in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War.

"Benjamin Rawlinson served in the South Carolina Militia from Richland District during the American Revolution. He served with his brothers William, John, Richard and George. Benjamin served as a foot soldier under Lieutenant William Pearson October 19, 1781 to December 19, 1781 at Orangeburg, South Carolina."

General Notes: Husband - Capt. Samuel STANLEY, RS-VA

"Samuel STANLEY enlisted in the Revolutionary War at Chesterfield Court House 18 Sept 1880 (typo, 1780. RLD) - enlisted for one year and six months at that time living in Albermarle County, Virginia - was born in London, England 'See certified Size Roll of Troops in manuscript in Virginia State Library known as Chesterfield Supplement'
Samuel STANLEY was head of a household of seven-inclusive in Hanover County, Virginia. See Census taken between 1782-1785-First Census of illegible, see page 28.
Samuel Stanley had 750 acres of land granted to him on Edisto Island Charleston County - on June 5, 1786, was head of a family in Cheraw Co. 1790, himself and three daughters." (Aunt Belle's Journal, Marian Stanley)
"I will give the following on other Stanley lines in early S.C. In old Cheraw Dist. there was a Revolutionary soldier named Moses STANLEY, and he is listed as Pvt. in Greggs History of Old Cheraw. We know nothing more about him. However, in 1790 U.S. Census of Cheraw 35 Dist., S.C., is listed Capt. Samuel STANLEY born in Va. (New Kent County, I think) and was Capt. in Rev. War in Va., moved thence to Cheraw and then to Columbia, S.C. He died there about 1813 and his wife was a Miss HENDRICKS, daughter. of Capt. William HENDRICKS a Rev. soldier from Cheraw. They had two sons, Robert Hendricks STANLEY and William Byrd STANLEY, and a dau. who m. Henry McGOWAN, dau. Elizabeth m. TRAPP, and dau. Mary who married 4 times, first to Wm.

"The mother of Mary Polly Stanley was -------Paslay from Virginia. I believe Samuel and Paslay had six daughters." (Mary Stanley Tucker. 5/11/2005)

(Marian Stanley, amstucker@aol.com, 6.07.2005, email)


General Notes: Child - Mary STANLEY

Mary STANLEY, daughter of Samuel STANLEY, is said to be born about 1769 because her gravestone says "Mrs. Mary Hillegas//died September 21, 1859//aged 90 years." [Transcribed by Marian Stanley Tucker] In the 1850 census, Mary [Stanley (William) Howell (Robert) Hendrick (Charles) Williamson (William)] HILLEGAS is age 70, born about 1779/80, and her daughter Sarah T. [Howell] WALTERS, age 53 [born about 1797]. The difference of 10 years is of interest, but does not make her too young to have been the mother of Sarah Taylor HOWELL born between 1795 and 1797 per the 1850 and 1860 censuses.

"I will give the following on other Stanley lines in early S.C. In old Cheraw Dist. there was a Revolutionary soldier named Moses STANLEY, and he is listed as Pvt. in Greggs History of Old Cheraw. We know nothing more about him. However, in 1790 U.S. Census of Cheraw 35 Dist., S.C., is listed Capt. Samuel STANLEY born in Va. (New Kent County, I think) and was Capt. in Rev.

"Mary "Polly" STANLEY was a daughter of Samuel STANLEY and his first wife, --------Paslay, both from Virginia. Mary Polly is buried in the Stanley plot here adjacent to the First Presbyterian Church. Her birth and death dates are on her marker, and I'll go look at them tomorrow when I am in town and let you know. In Old and New Columbia, if I remember correctly, the author thinks her birth date somewhat short, for he said that she was married to two Revolutionary officers, Howell and Hendrick." (Marian Stanley, 3/24/2005)

An abstract from Richland County Will Book L: "Page 486. Mary HILLEGAS. May 3, 1858-October 17, 1859. Wit: Edw. WALSHE, W. Y. PURSE, J. A. SELBY. Ex.: W. B. STANLEY. Bro.: W. B. STANLEY. Dau.: Mrs. Sarah T. WALTER. Wished to be buried in family burying ground." (Source: "History of Richland County", Edwin L. Green, p. 346.)

"This afternoon I went to the Stanley plot in the churchyard. It is so beautiful there; the trees are expertly pruned and about to go into full bloom in just a few weeks. The ground cover is composed of millions of tiny violets and small white blooms. The entire cemetery is a showplace right in the middle of the town.
On the gravestone of Mary Polly Stanley's is written: Mrs. Mary Hillegas//died September 21, 1859//aged 90 years. If she were ninety when she died, then she would have been born in 1769. As I mentioned last night, some think the date late, in as much as she married two officers of the Revolution, Captain Howell and Dr. Hendrick.
I also looked at the Duke grave I mentioned. It says: Thomas Wells Duke//1795-1818//Son of Charles O. and Dorothea Duke ("This is one of the stones we had to remake, as the original one was falling apart. We could not make out the wording on the lower part of the old one. As I remember, it said something about his being killed in a war." Marian Stanley Tucker)
My grandfather, Charles Duke Stanley was evidently named for the father listed here, but no one ever told me anything about this.
I do not believe I ever had a copy of Dr. Robert's will and other papers, but I'm sure one could be procured at the SC Archives. Some years ago, I did, however, hire Mr. Brent Holcombe, a certified genealogist, to find out what he could about the Hendrick family. Don't think he ever came across anything useful, other than the fact that Louisa Hendrick, his daughter, was sent to boarding school in North Carolina.
As an aside, my great-great uncle, Captain William Byrd Stanley, second son of Martha Hendrick (Duke) Stanley and Samuel Stanley, fought in the Mexican War, which was sometime before the War Between the States. Captain Stanley was awarded (according to my mother) a large gold round engraved gold piece, one of only seven given to certain members of the Palmetto Regiment who went to Mexico. My father inherited this gold piece.
Unfortunately, my father and mother had a terrible time during the Great Depression, and unbeknownst to Mother, Father sold the gold piece when they were in such terrible financial straits. Mother said she would have done almost anything to have kept it.
I'm sure that this piece at auction today, at Christie's in New York, would sell for somewhere in the high six figures, perhaps more. Uncle William also was given two silver dueling pistols by the City of Columbia, but I do not know what happened to them. He was very well off when living, president of the bank, mayor three times, many other honors.
I have found some of my papers this morning, and need to clarify Captain William Hendrick senior's position. He was a Member of the South Carolina Twelfth, Fourteenth, Fifteenth, and Sixteenth Royal Assemblies, from 1740 to 1747. (From Biographical Directory of the SC House of Representatives, Vol. II, Edgar and Bailey) According to my research, he married the second time Mary Vanderhorst, daughter of John Vanderhorst of the Charleston family by that name. Captain William Hendrick Sr.'s home was in Christ Church Parish, Charlestown, South Carolina.
I'll keep looking. Thanks, Marian Stanley" (Marian Stanley Tucker, email, 3/24/2005. RLD)

The mother of Mary Polly Stanley was -------Paslay from Virginia. I believe Samuel and Paslay had six daughters.
There is a lovely description of Mary Stanley when she was old in either the Selby or Williams book:
"Many evenings I have spent with my old friend, Mrs. Mary Hillegas [Mary Stanley]---reading to her news and advertisements from files of old papers, and listening to her interesting comments. Her memory was wonderful, and I have been able to corroborate some of her information in such a satisfactorary manner, that I take the balance as literally true. We would seat ourselves---the old lady taking a pinch of snuff, wiping her nose with a red silk handkerchief, holding her head aside, and then deftly using a handsome linen one conspicuously. The reading would then begin and the replies to queries be brought out, besides voluntary information.----[the memory of my old friend] is so complete, that I can safely venture considerable beyond my own times."
I visited the Stanley plot in the Presbyterian cemetery this morning and looked up the gravestone of Captain William Byrd Stanley's wife:
"In Memory of //Harriet Louisa Stanley//wife of//William B. Stanley//and daughter of//James D and Sarah Taylor Zimmerman//who departed this life//December 29, 1841 (gravestone so old I could not make out the last date here, but think it might say 1841)//in the 24th year of her age.//"Those who knew her best, loved her the most."
Obviously, the person recording the information you found omitted Harriet Louisa Zimmerman's name as she might have already been deceased.
It seems that Mary Stanley Howell was left a substantial estate by both her first and second marriages: Howell and Hendrick.
Thanks for the suggestions concerning Aunt Belle's journal. I'll tend to seeing it photographed ASAP.

Obituary:
"GRANDMA INGRID BERGSTROM PASSES AWAY
Mrs. Ingrid BERGSTROM, the wife of Peter BERGSTROM, deceased died at the home of her son,. Emil, east of town last Saturday at 2:30 p. m. This splendid aged lady with her husband came to this county in an early day and settled in the Sweede [sic] settlement east of Hermitage founded by her brother, Judge Peter SOLBERG who we believe was the first to come, more than 50 years ago. In addition to the son, Emil, whom we had mentioned the other children of this union are Mrs. Charles CARLSTROM, a son Henry, of this county and a son, John H., who resides with his family in the state of California. Mrs. BERGSTROM was a sister of Mrs. Eric Peterson who survives, also to the late Ole SOLBERG deceased, and an aunt of Eric EKLOF. The funeral service was held at Victory church and interment in Clark Cemetery Sunday. A further account will be found in Victory items." [From a copy of a newspaper article which is missing the publication name and date, presumably from The Index. RLD]
and...
"IN MEMORY OF MOTHER
Ingrid Solberg BERGSTROM was born in Wingoker county Sodermanland Province Sweden on october 27, 1847 and passed that rest which God hath for his beloved on Saturday, May 24, 1924 at 3:30 p. m. aged 76 years, 6 months and 27 days. Her home was in Sweden until she was twenty-two years of age where in 1869 she left her childhood home and crossed the Atlantic to join her brother, Peter SOLBERG who had come to Rockport, Ill., sometime before. She had been there only a short while when her affianced husband, Peter BERGSTROM came to Rockport, Ill., where they were married on November 19, 1869. They made their home in Illinois for one year and came from there to Hickory County, Missouri. They made their new home on the farm three miles east of Hermitage where she resided until the Autumn of 1917 when she was too infirm to remain longer in the old home and went to make her home with her children. Her husband preceded her to their eternal home fifteen years ago. He died Aug. 19, 1909. She has gone to be with her companion, whom to her last few days she always spoke of so tenderly and told how happy they had always been together.
To this union were born six children, two of whom, Anna Christine and Bobert [sic] Samuel died in infancy.
She leaves to mourn their loss one son,John who resides in Redlands, California, two sons Henry and Emil, and one daughter, Mrs. Charles CARLSTROM, all living east of Hermitage near their old home; ten grandchildren, two great grandchildren, one sister, Mrs. Eric Peterson of near Hermitage; and a great many other relatives and friends who will miss her. In early life she was converted, and became a member of the Baptist church more than fifty years ago, was one of the charter members when the present Victory church was organized in 1888. Her last illness was an attact [sic] of kidney and bronchial trouble, but how glad we are that she never seemed to suffer any pain! She realized that the end was near and expressed her willingness then as many times before to go home to her precious Savior.
At three o'clock on the afternoon of Sunday, May 25, 1924 her funeral services were held in Victory church, where for many years she had attended church and studied and taught in the Sunday school She was an active church worker as long as her health permitted.
Many friends gathered to pay the last tribute of love and respect to her life and memory. Loving hands made the church beautiful for her that day by the many floral decorations. "safe In The Arms of Jesus, " "It Is Well With My Soul" and "Jesus Is All The World To Me," her favorite songs, were sung during the services.
Rev. Varner, Baptist Minister of Warsaw, delivered an impressive sermon after which the body of our loved one was taken to Clark cemetery and tenderly laid away in its last resting place beside her companion to await the Resurrection Morn.
Of her it may be truthfully said that the world is better by her having lived in it. She was a great lover of nature and while rejoicing in the beauties of earth, air and sky she ever remembered Him whose handiwork they all are. She lived a kind, useful and christain [sic] life and her death was one becoming such a life - very peaceful indeed. In this way, of sorrow wherein we now walk we must trust to Him who has led our mother safely through life's voyage. He is the Great Physician who alone can comfort our hearts. For her we should not greive - her pure spirit has entered that better land where death comes not, and where there is neither pain nor sorrow. She has safely anchored in the Heaven of Rest and met her Savior face to face. Let us try to shape our lives so that when our summons comes to join that innumerable caravan we will be prepared to meet her.
"She is gone but not forgotten,
Never will her memory fade,
Sweetest thoughts will ever linger
Round the spot where she is laid."
Contributed by her loving children."
