A Brief and Continuing History of Clarendon County

Chapter Four: A New County – Part One


There is much evidence that America prospered in the 1850, such as when the U.S.Capitol was built and railroad crossing of the Mississippi River. In South Carolina, a new county was born, Clarendon. John Isaac Ingram served in the House of Representatives from 1842 to 1848 and the Senate from 1848 to 1856. He presented a petition signed by seven-eighths of the section’s population, overcoming opposition from his fellow Sumter Senator. Ingram’s consistent pleas convinced the General Assembly to create a new district by dividing Sumter County thus creating … Read the rest

Editorial: Bravery

by Teri Norsworthy

While thinking of Bravery this past Memorial Day, I am remembering the many lives spent on maintaining the freedom of our wonderful country. I have not personally experienced losing a close family member to war so I can’t say I understand the burden and loss one feels when that happens. Then I wondered who the brave one is? The one that gave their life or the one that has to go on facing life here and finding a new way of living.

I have been married to John about thirty-eight years. We have become so close to Read the rest

The Mt. Hope Scrolls

By Bobby Jonte

Why? It’s a question I ask all the time. Why do these projects I get into take so long to complete? I shouldn’t be complaining at all. Most things I do are simple. they are just not easy. I just started a new project. It is probably going to take at least two years to complete. That may not sound like a long time but time is going rather quickly for me.

Luckily, I have patience. I managed to learn patience on the last big secret project. It took twenty-two years to complete. Read the rest
