Ken in answer to your question on Moses I think you are probably right. I am
going to give you my notes on him...see what you think. Trish Hyatt Henson

the present Lockhart, SC in Union County. He was a Loyalist during the
Revolution, convicted of sedition by the American authorities and exiled to the
British base at Orangeburg, SC.

Moses bought land in Union County, SC, 17 December 1785. Union County RMC A,
Pages 80-82.

Moses was living in Union County at the time of the 1790 Census. His
household was listed with two while males 16 and upward, one white male under 16, and
4 white females. SC 1790 Census page94. Thomas Quarles is next door and
Elizabeth Quarles is nearby.

After the Revolution, Moses returned to Union County where he lived until the
late 1790's when he moved north into Spartanburg County on land he had bought
adjacent to his son David.

He bought 100 acres in Spartanburg Co, SC, along the Pacolet River in 1799.

and return to its originals owners after Moses died suggested he lease the land
for his declining years. The land was almost surrounded by the land of his
son David.

hundred yards.
