I am sorry, I have not. I am not researching Buffington, Farrow or Wood. Samuel Farrow is just part of some of my collateral lines. This is what I have.

Samuel Farrow served as a Captain under Colonel Williams in the battle of Muskgrove's Mill where he was wounded in the face by a saber.He was under Colonel Roebuck after the fall of Charleston and was captured during 1783.
Samuel studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1793.He commenced practice in Spartanburg, South Carolina and was also engaged in agricultural pursuits.He was Lieutenant Governor of South Carolina 1810-1812 and elected as a Democrat to the Thirteenth Congress (from March 4, 1813 until March 3, 1815).He was a member of the State House of Representatives 1816-1821.He died in Columbia, South Carolina on November 18, 1824.

An interesting lawsuit was brought against Samuel in 1792.The records of this lawsuit are in "The Miles Family History."It seems that during the Revolutionary War, while in pursuit of some Tories, Samuel's horse tired out.he came across a Shadrick Martin at a mill and requested that they trade horses for a time.When Mr. Martin refused, Samuel drew his sword and forcibly took the horse, leaving his in exchange.Several days later, Samuel was captured by the enemy and the horse taken from him.Shadrick sued for the value of the horse.Samuel would have been 18 at the time of the incident.
