1753 – Religion.

A petition was made to the Royal Governor for a parcel of land upon which to build a Lutheran church.

1767 – Backcountry.

In more complaints about the dangerous conditions in the backcountry, The South Carolina and American General Gazette reported that:

If we save a little for to bring to Town Wherewith to purchase Slaves – Should it be known our Houses are beset, and Robbers plunder Us, even of our Cloaths. If we buy Liquor for to Retail, or for hospitality, they will break into our dwellings and consume it … Should be raise fat Cattle, or Prime Horses for the Market, they are constantly carried off, tho’ well guarded.
