Thanks, Jstory. Ive floated with many folks. It usually takes at least two to arrange the vehicles. Although Ive logged over a thousand miles in SC, Ive got plenty left do in the East and Lowcountry.
We of 6th Engr Bn Phoenix AZ, reservists there for our 2wks "summer camp," helped build a couple of these guest cabins in fall of 1973. Looks like they turned out nicely and have lasted over 40 yrs too. Best duty ever.

4thcalvaryRebel, I may be a descendant of the slaves that lived here and were the origin of a lawsuit by your gggf
Collins. I am looking for any information you may have regarding what happened to these slaves after they went to live with Lewis Eaton after William Watson Collins. And what happened to the 5 year old slave girl
"Lowertown" information from historical maps and records were originally compiled by Ann Sheriff in the 1970's. Recently, Dr. Dave LePere at Clemson University has produced a map using this information from Sheriff. There is also a map available for sale at the Walhalla Library that shows the general location of these villages. To my knowledge there hasn't been archeological research on these three villages that I mentioned, so I doubt if any one knows their exact whereabouts. Check out information on these three that was complied by Ann Sheriff here: http://rootsweb.ancestry.com/~scpicke2/images/sheriff-01.pdf
