Thank you for sharing your research.
I did find where in 1775 John SWINT (took up?) a SC plat surveyed 1772 for John BUSH in the forks of the Broad River and Saluda River near Wateree Creek as shown online at the following page: http://188.8.131.52/onlinearchives/Thumbnails.aspx?recordId=115086http://184.108.40.206/onlinearchives/Thumbnails.aspx?recordId=115086 What do you think that first word is naming the wagon road? I had thought perhaps he was related to John KELLY since he was named as one of the his executors in a 1767 suit: http://www.archivesindex.sc.gov/Archives/search/details.asp?index=160503&table=AllArchivalData&tableLook=MainIndexhttp://www.archivesindex.sc.gov/Archives/search/details.asp?index=160503&table=AllArchivalData&tableLook=MainIndex I wondered if you had found any indication of what John SWINT was doing when in mid 1700's taking up several tracts of land on Edisto River--mining? Later, he might have been doing the same thing on the Catawba River. Any comments will be greatly appreciated.
