  • MISCELLANEOUS ABSTRACTS FROM PRE-CIVIL WAR CHERAW, SC NEWSPAPERS

by James C. Pigg

Description:

Abstracts of various Cheraw Newspapers on micro-film at the Chesterfield branch library.  They cover married and death notices, equity and sheriff sales.

  • Sample:  Departed this lift on the 8th instant, after a violent illness of two weeks, William M. McIver, son of Dr. Jno K. McIver of Society Hill, in the 21st year of his age.  He several years ago embraced religion, and afterwards became a member of the SC College, where he graduated in the winter of 1837.  He was a young man of fine character--promising talents, and pleasing prospects in life.  but death has blasted in the bud the fond hopes of parents, friends, and the church of God. In his life brief as it was he adorned the Christian profession, and in his death exemplified the triumph of Christian faith.  As death approached, he spoke repeatedly of his submission to the will of Heaven, and dwelt in animating terms upon the blessedness of the believers hope.  It proved an anchor to his soul in the tempest of dissolving nature--it destroyed the terrors of death, and dissipated the awful gloom of the grave!  "Let me die the death of the righteous; and let my last end be like his!" March 20, 1839.

Soft cover, spiral bound, 84 pages, index, 8 1/2 x 11 size.  Price $20.00 plus $4.00 shipping.
