Does anyone remember that revolutionary war cannon about 4 feet high, which stood on the corner of Main and Caldwell streets for so many years, prior to the Confederate war with its muzzle six or more inches in the ground, with a round ball as large as a duck egg on the top end. It was the cannon that was dragged to the first Baptist Church during the funeral of John E. Sheely in 1848, killed in the Mexican war. This cannon was carried to Helena about the time of Grover Cleveland's election as president of the United States, and there it was used to celebrate Cleveland's election, one load of this cannon being so much as to cause it to burst completely and be destroyed.

Deaths
Mr. L. B. Cline, a brother of the late Wallace A. Cline, died at his home in Greenville the 15th instant.
Mrs. Elvira Rutherford died in Newberry on Thursday, the 14th instant, aged about seventy-five years.
Mr. Pierce Buzhardt, son of Mr. M. H. Buzhardt, of this county, died on Monday, the 18th instant, of typhoid fever, in the 23d year of his age.
Dr. William Henry Harrington died at his home in Crawfordville, Miss., on the 10th instant.  He was born at Newberry on the 19th of November, 1816, and was the son of Young John and Nancy (Calmes) Harrington.  After receiving a good literary education, he entered the Medical profession, having been graduated from the Medical College of Charleston, SC. He married on the 18th of November, 1841, to Miss Sarah Strother O'Neall, the only surviving child of Chief Justice John Belton O'Neall.  She died in August, 1857.  He was again married in December, 1858, to Mrs. Hollingsworth, of Edgefield, SC., who survives him. Dr. Harrington lived in Newberry from his birth until 1865, when he removed to Mississippi.  During his residence in Newberry he represented Newberry District in the House of Representatives of South Carolina for two years.  In order to devote himself to his planting interest, he gave up the practice of his chosen profession some time before he left South Carolina to Mississippi, where he pursued it with much success.
Dr. Harrington inherited his father's abilities and graceful manners, and the gentleness and aniabilty of his mother.  By inheritance and by marriage he came into possession of wealth, which he employed, not in making senseless displays, but in adorning and rendering attractive a happy home, in acts of beneflience, and in dispensing a generous hospitality.  Having leisure-especially before the disasters of the recent war-to devote to books, he read extensively and to good purpose.  Few men excelled him as a conversationist, and by his attractive manners and unfailing courtesy he threw a charm about every social circle into which he entered.  The habitual expression of his countenace was serene and pleasant, indicating a heart free from guile and malice.  As a mere man, he was impressive; his erect, handsome figure, manly deportment and intelligent face harmonizing with the refinement and dignity of his character.  He seemed to have been born to bless the world with his unselfish disposition, his unvarying cheerfulness and his ex-emplary piety.  It was well said of him by a gentleman, on the streets of Newberry, when he heard of his fatal illness; "H is one of Nature's Nobleman".  He is to be remembered among the men whose lives have shed honor and renown upon the county of Newberry.
Dr. Harrington was the father of Mrs. Dr. Sampson Pope, the late Mrs. J. Wistar Gary and the late Young John Harrington, Edq., of Newberry, and of Mrs. Thomas J. Lipscomb of Columbia, SC.  He leaves a son, Dr. Belton Harrington, and a daughter, Mrs. Kier, in Mississippi, and a son, Hugh O'Neall Harrington, in Texas-all of whom were children of his first marriage, there being no issue by the second marriage.  He was also the brother of Mrs. Nancy Moon, of Newberry, who is now the only surviving member of her father's family.
Dr. Harrington's remains have been brought to Newberry and interred in the Calmes cemetery, where his maternal grandparents, his own parents, his deceased wife, and many more of his kindred are quietly sleeping.

I wish to make corrections in the names of the Pughs. Timothy Pugh was not the first Pugh to come to South Carolina. He was the grand son of Azariah Pugh, the first one of that name to come to the Quaker settlement on Bush River.

Azariah Pugh was the grandson of Ellis Pugh, a Quaker preacher and writer who came to America from Meriwether Wales in 1687 and settled in Montgomery County Pennsylvania. Among his sons was one named Thomas. Thomas's son Azariah, moved from Pennsylvania to Frederick County Virginia and later in 1765 he came to South Carolina. He had six sons, five of whom moved to Ohio in 1801 settling near Waynesville. His son William stayed on in South Carolina. William had one son Timothy. Timothy’s sons were William, Hawkins and Thomas. The daughters were Katherine and Martha.

I am the daughter of William, no doubt my grandfather Timothy was the last Quaker in the Bush River section as he never joined any other denomination as other Quakers did. He is buried in the Quaker graveyard on Bush River. [Sallie Pugh, Newberry Observer 7/4/1939, p4]


THE SOUTH CAROLINA KUKUX
The Cold-Blooded Murder of the Wounded Man, Faulkner-Testimony at the Coroner's Inquest
From the Columbia (S. C.) Union. May 31.
On the 25th inst. there appeared in the columns of this paper an account of the murder of Faulkner, the Newberry Kuklux, by some persons unknown. The following report of the proceedings of the Coroner's inquest upon the body of the murdered Faulkner will set all doubts at rest. Faulkner was lying at the house of a Mr. Williams, in Edgefield County, attended by his wife, and, it is said, was about to be moved to North Carolina, intending, no doubt, to forfeit his bail and leave the State. The evidence discloses a cold-blooded murder, and is as follows:

The acting Coroner who hold the inquest was Mr. L. Colbreath, Trial Justice, and the foreman of the jury was Rev. John Trait. Mr. J. C. Williams testified as follows :
That a man came to his father's house on the evening of the 20th inst. and said he wished to see a Mr. Faulkner, who, he understood, was in the house wounded. He said to Mr. Williams that his business was to apprise the wounded man that his whereabouts was known, and also of the danger he was in if he remained any longer in his present condition; that he came as a friend, and asked Mr. Williams if he could loan him a wagon to carry away the wounded man. After the said conversation with the stranger Mr. Williams returned to the house and acquainted Mr. Faulkner with what the stranger had said, and at the same time asked Mr. Faulkner if he must let him come in. Mr. Faulkner said " Yes, let him come in." I then returned to the gate and told the gentleman he might go in and talk with Mr. Faulkner. When the gentleman arrived at the door of the room where Mr. Faulkner lay, he requested to speak privately to Mr. Faulkner. So Mr. Faulkner requested myself and Mrs. Faulkner to retire, which he did. After talking a short time he came out of the room and went toward the crate. As soon as the gentleman left the room, I entered and asked Mr. Faulkner what he thought of the stranger.

He replied that he thought he (the stranger) was his friend and that he had gone out to bring in a person whom he knew. The strange gentleman again returned and said he wished to deliver a message he had from the gentleman who was at the gate. So Mr. Faulkner asked myself and his wife to leave the room again until the stranger delivered the message. The stranger remained in the room a short time, and when he came out, asked me to accompany him down to the gate and remain with the horses until he and the other gentleman came in and saw Mr. Faulkner together. So I walked with him down to the gate, but saw no horses. Just as I was passing through the gate, up rose three men, who presented pistols at me, and told me if I attempted to move they would shoot me dead. I told them I would obey their commands. The gentleman who came with me from the house, beckoned to one of the four men who were at the gate. The two men ran to the house, rushed into the room, and fired two shots at Mr. Faulkner, both of them taking effect, one passing through his head and the other through the thigh. Immediately after the ports of the pistols, the two men ran with all their might down to the gate where the other three men were, who had me in custody. I was then told to go to the house. The live men then ran off with all their might. I then hastened to the house, and found Mr. Faulkner a corpse. I did not know any of the men.

The evidence of Mrs. Faulkner was very short, the substance of which is as follows:
Mrs. Faulkner was in the room when a strange person came in and asked my husband to have me hide my face; I left the room by the request of Mr. Faulkner; after the stranger left the room, I returned to the room where Mr. Faulkner was, and asked him what he thought of the stranger; he said he thought the man was his friend, but that he was afraid of the party, but said the gentleman was going to bring in another gentleman by the name of Taylor, who lived at Saluda Old Town, and that they were to remove him (Mr. Faulkner) four or five miles to-night, and that they had a spring wagon to carry him, but that she must not go along with him, as they were to take him (Mr. Faulkner) to North Carolina, and that she could follow in a few days ; that she would be informed of his whereabouts.

The fore going is a complete history of this affair. It is said that Faulkner had talked too freely for one placed in his position, and that this was the means taken to prevent a further divulgences of the terrible secrets which he possessed. [The New York Times, June 3, 1871]

THE SOUTH CAROLINA KUKLUX
Attack Upon a Colored County Commissioner in His Own House—He is Shot Twice and His Wife and Child are
Wounded—One of the Gang Shot and Severely Injured by Him—A Girl Brutally Whipped.
From the Columbia (S. C.) Union. May 16.
The Kuklux, to the number of about 100, made one of their characteristic visits to Newberry Court-house,  Sunday morning, between 1 and 2 o'clock, and succeeded in shooting one county officer, wounding him in two  places, and, it is thought, fatally wounding his wife, she being shot through the back, and also wounding  her child, of three years of age, through both hips.  The facts, as narrated to us by Mr. Simeon Young, (colored,) the wounded man, who is Chairman of the Board of County Commissioners, and whom we  visited last evening, upon his arrival in this city, are as follows: Young says, "I live in the town of Newberry, and on Sunday morning last, between 1 and 2 o'clock, my wife woke me up. saying there was Kuklux outside. I immediately jumped out of bed and took my rifle. They broke in the window of the bed-room and threw a turpentine ball into the room, which I smothered with a blanket. They then went to the front door of the house, burst that in, and threw several of the turpentine balls into the room, which made into the room, which I smothered with a blanket. They then went to the front door of the house, burst that in, and threw several of the turpentine balls into the room, which mnde it light, and then burst open the bedroom door, and fired through the partition some ten or twelve shots, wounding my wife through the back, and my child through both hips, as they lay in bed. After pushing the door shut several times, I let it come open and fired upon the nearest man, wounding him severely. I then jumped through the window, and as I was running through the crowd, and about to leap the fences, I received two shots in the thigh". This is the statement of Mr. Young as made to our reporter last evening, and it is corroborated by other parties, both white and colored, who were witnessess to some parts of the subsequent proceedings. The squad that came to Young's house numbered about thirty, being nearly one-third of the party, the remainder of the band remaining in the road, except when one squad was sent to visit the house of Trial Justice Long, who secreted himself and escaped them. On Sunday night they also visited the residence of David Hailstock, another of the County Commissioners, but he had intimation of their coming and took to the woods, and thus eluded them. The Kuklux wounded by Young, at his house, turns out to be a man named Watt Faulkner, who was formerly a gambler in this city. He is very seriously wounded, and it is reported Sheriff proceeded to the locality and arrested Faulkner on Sunday, and lodged him in jail, where he was yesterday, The impression prevails, however, that his release will be attempted by his comrades. There was another shooting scrape also in Newberry, yesterday, growing out of the refusal by a colored man to exchange silver money for greenbacks. Upon his refusal, a young man living about four miles from town fired four shots at the colored man. None took effect. Information was received yesterday of the killing of the Kuklnx of a man near Gist's Station, on the Spartanburg and Union Railroad, on Saturday night, and also of the brutal whipping of a young girl at the same time and place.

A Good Man for a Policeman,
From the Newberry (S.C.) Herald.
We are told that a colored man named Henson, living in this town, has not slept for three months.   He labors under some nervous disorder. No pain is experienced by the unfortunate fellow. The physicians are treating this novel phenomenon. It seems to us that insanity or death must have intervened by this time and yet his mind is clear and he labors every day.

ARREST OF A SOUTHERN BIGAMIST.
COL. KEITT, of NEWBERRY, S. C, HELD TO AWAIT   THE   ACTION   OF   THE GRAND JURY — A  STIR   AMONG   THE   " BEST PEOPLE."
Special Dispatch to the New-York Time.
"Washington, Sept. 5.— A private letter received from South Carolina states that Col. Keitt, of Newberry Court-house, was arrested at that place, on Saturday last, on the charge of bigamy, and in default of bail was held to await the action of the Grand Jury. This expose has created a sensation in South Carolina, as the accused is a near relative of the late Laurence M. Keitt, who figured so prominently in Congress prior to the rebellion, and is connected with some of the best families of that State. [The New York Times, Published: Sept. 6, 1877]

THE FIRST SHOT AT SUMTER.
BRIEF SKETCH   OF   CAPT.  JAMES, WHO FIRED THE SIGNAL GUN.
From the Charleston (S. C.) News.
Judge J. M. Crosson, a native of Newberry County, who graduated at the South Carolina College about 1840, and afterward moved to Texas, in a recent sketch, of Col. George S. James, who fired the first gun in the late war, says: "When a boy at Erskine College, South Carolina, he ran off and joined the Palmetto Regiment en route to Mexico, and for his gallantry was appointed Sergeant-Major of the regiment. After his return from the Mexican war he graduated at the South Carolina College in the class with Prof. Girardeau, now of Houston. He, with Howard Caldwell, a promising young poet, (now dead,) went to Arkansas, selling 'Benton's Thirty Years in the Senate.' Young James taught a school of Indians at Fort Scott, in Indian Territory. Thence he walked to Fairfield, where his friend W. C. Wilson was practicing law. Young James walked up to the landlord at the hotel, saying it was customary for guests to deposit their baggage, and handed him his gloves. He at once obtained a fine school and made many friends. He was a splendid scholar and a magnificent man, both intellectually and physically. While there his uncle, Judge O'Neal, Chief-Justice of South. Carolina, obtained for him the appointment of First Lieutenant in the Third United States Artillery,then Col. Worth's regiment. He was a splendid shot with a rifle, and while others used shotguns in driving he always brought down the bucks on the run with his rifle. While stationed at Fort Randal, in Nebraska, he resigned and returned to South Carolina before she seceded. Upon secession he was appointed Captain of artillery and was stationed at Charleston. He afterward led a gallant regiment from his native county—Laurens, S. C. His color bearer, his cousin Willie Simpson, was killed because, though surrounded and overpowered, he would not surrender his flag. Col. James was killed at Boonesborough Gap at the head of his regiment, which was annihilated. He fell into the hands of his old comrades of the Third United States Artillery, who had him decently buried, and preserved the watch and other things upon his body and sent them to his brother in South Carolina."

A farmer in Jalapa (Name not given) in a period of five years failed to raise guineas - with all male birds. Next he tried Chinese geese, ordering two from Missouri. Two years of patient watching and waiting and not an egg or gosling. Fi-nally, a near neighbor, J. C. Duncan, being full of pity for the would-be poultry raiser, kindly presented a mate for the two birds. Perhaps now there will be some activity on the poultry farm.

FREE MASONRY
Viewing the present prosperity and popularity of Freemasonry, it is difficult to realize that in America about 100 years ago a strong fight was made against the order. The opposition was caused by the disappearance of William Morgan who had published what he claimed was a revelation of the secret work of masonry. Morgan was never heard of after his disappearance from Canandaigua NY in September 1826. Although the various Grand Lodges generally condemned what was supposed to be the abduction of Morgan and offered rewards for his alleged abductors, public sentiment was stirred against the order and a strong anti-Masonic movement spread. Mass meetings denounced all Masons. This anti-Masonic crusade continued for about 20 years but gradually abated and from 1845 on, masonry revived and again began to spread rapidly. Since then it has become one of the most powerful and beneficial influences in the nation, enjoying practically universal respect and esteem.

Crosson School Reunion 1935
The 9th reunion of the Survivors Association of the Crosson Field School met on August 9 and seldom is it the privilege of anyone to spend a more pleasant day than it was for those who were present on that day.
Early in the week the executive committee with a bevy of coworkers from the vicinity had cleaned the grounds, built new tables and was in general readiness. The only thing overlooked by them was that nature had beat the girls to their chorus stand but it only added to the merriment and taught the fine bevy of 20 girls an added lesson of self-reliance. For without an instrument of any kind they sang as gay as a lark at our neighborhood club, to bring forward as many of these pretty old songs of former days and sing them from memory. They have been with us for two years and I am sure they are already anticipating the hearty laughs and many rides of another year.
Early in the day the arrivals began and before the noon hour there was a fine audience of representative people from all over different parts of the state. While some of the program speakers ( for valid reasons) did not fill their appointments there were equally as good substitutes. Where would you find men that would make better speeches than James H. Hope, Rev. Carl Caughman, G. K. Dominick, Rev. Keisler, Dr. D. M. Crosson and others.
It was to be regretted that the seats of the centenarians table were not occupied this year, although the table with fresh white linen, vase of flowers and chairs were all in readiness. One old lady (101 years old) had responded to her invitation that she was expecting to be there.
The barbecue and picnic were fine. When these auxiliaries put their shoulders to the wheel things move. The old officials were all re-elected. There had been five deaths of the survivors to report in the past year. This leaves 20 boys and 27 girls of the first public school enrollment of Newberry County still living.
One of the deaths reported this year occurred in Atlanta in the old woman’s home (Ms. Tallulah Mathis). She had been getting around in a wheel chair for a number of years. Another in the veterans home in Columbia (Mrs. Rhoda Watts). One in the home of a daughter in Newberry (Mrs. Sallie Mills) . The others in homes of their own and that of relatives nearby.

The first PUBLIC SCHOOL of Newberry County started in 1870 and was one of the first in the state of South Carolina to be established. It was on a 400 acre farm. 100 acres of this farm, lying from the road on the right of the school grounds, extended to the present highway near the corporate limits of the town of Prosperity. The broad tract of land was the scene of many beautiful crops, the first appearance of the Tozer steam engine built in Columbia and used in Newberry County and the site of the first use of the McCormick reaper used in the state. In those days before population and industry as well as commerce the population was centered along railroads. This section was a landmark known far and wide. The owner of this farm was John Thomas Presley Crosson. He was the oldest son of James and Rebecca Halfacre Crosson. He was born February 15, 1832, a graduate of Erskine college in the class of 1855 with Boyd, Hood, Latham, Otis, Craig, Grier and a number of others. He was married to Rosanna Catherine Cook in 1856. Mr. Crossan was a soldier in the Confederate war. He served in Company G, 13th SC Regiment McGowan’s brigade and saw service in the battles of Mechanicsville, Gaines Mill, Cold Harbor, Frasier’s mill, Mount Vernon Hill, second Manassas, Ochs felt, Sharpsburg, Harpers Ferry, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, white Oak Swamp, the Wilderness, Maine Run, Nole Station, Frasier’s farm, Deep Bottom, Hatcher’s Run, Mittin road, Jones house, Jericho Ford, Ridley shops, Reams station, Falling Water, Richmond, Petersburg and Appomattox. His company G, SC Regt. was engaged in 74 skirmishes and fights and he answered to 72 roll calls and waded the Potomac River three times. He said, “Often after a long march some poor fellow would say—Crosson—I will skirmish and cook the rations if you’ll write a letter to my home folks.” It was much easier to drop down against the trunk of a tree and soon have something written that would give pleasure to a dozen or more than it was to prepare the supper with his inexperience in the culinary department.

City Board of Health
Newberry, SC
Gentlemen,
The following is a report submitted for the year 1938:
The premises have been checked regularly have found in a good sanitary condition as a whole.
During the year the barbershops were angered condition. Two barbershops had hot and cold running water installed.
In checking the meat markets only 42 pounds of bad meat were destroyed and 226.5 pounds of bad fish were destroyed during the entire year.
The merchants were very nice in cooperating with me to keep the markets clean and sanitary.
The alleys have been sprayed regularly during the year to prevent the breeding of insects and to keep down dust.
All drugstores were inspected regularly and found in a very good condition.
I had the local men, that were peddling meat over the city, to obtain permits for selling the same. They were selling the meat before obtaining a license.
There were quite a number of contagious diseases quarantined during the year. I quarantined three cases of mumps, 277 cases of measles, six cases of chickenpox, three cases of scarlet fever, eight cases of whooping cough and two cases of diphtheria.
I have carried milk samples from older dairies regularly to Columbia to the state Board of Health for inspection. As a whole, the dairies checked all right. The dairies were inspected rarely every month. As a whole, the dairies were clean with the exception of a few. They were cleaned and are in good condition at the present time.
During the year I had 10 pigs removed from the city limits.
The cow lots were inspected regularly during the year. I found that some were not as clean as they should have been causing a very offensive odor. At the present the cow lots are in good condition.
38 surplus toilets were erected during the year to replace unfit ones and also new ones were erected for tenant houses. A number of sewage lines were unclogged during the year.
During the entire year only two houses had to be fumigated for TB germs.
I had water from five wells tested. The water from four of the wells was unfit for drinking and one well was in good condition.
The schools were inspected and the result was that the toilets were in a very bad condition in most of the schools. However, some few toilets were in good shape. The jail has been scrubbed very often to ensure cleanliness and sanitation.
The merchants of the city have cooperated with me in keeping the produce off the street. They keep the produce on racks about 20 inches above the sidewalk to keep the produce clean and free from germs.
As a whole the cafés have been in good condition during the year. I sincerely hope that my services have met with the entire approval of the Board. It has been a pleasure to work with the entire city and under the direction of the Board to ensure healthful and sanitary conditions for our city of Newberry. In the future, if I may be of any service to the Board, I will be so glad to do so. I thank you.
Yours very sincerely,
H. T. Long
Health Officer

Mrs. Ella Boland celebrated her 88th birthday at her home in Little Mountain on October 30, 1938 by having her children with her for the day. They are: J. L. Boland of Greenville, Mr. and Mrs. G. M. Boland of Columbia, Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Cumalander of Clinton, Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Boland of Clinton, F. M. Boland of Clinton, Mrs. Henry Fliedner of Clinton and Mr. and Mrs. I. V. Matthews of Little Mountain. Some of her grandchildren and great grand children were also present. Though advanced in years, Mrs. Boland is active and alert, keeping her home just as she has always done. Of a quiet, calm disposition she has met life cheerfully and numbers her friends by the hundreds. She is the daughter of the late Capt. George Epting. She was Elizabeth Chapman Epting. She was born and reared at the Epting Homestead, 2 miles below Little Mountain.
Mrs. Boland received her education at three schools. First, attending the Crossroads School where she was taught successfully by Capt. John Fulmer, Adam Counts and Mrs. Chapin. Mrs. Chapin was the wife of Martin Chapin a Pennsylvanian who came South in search of health and finally founded the town of Chapin. Mrs. Chapin was a well-educated woman, refined and genteel, a great favorite with her pupils. The second school she attended was at St. John's, in the Pomaria section where she was taught by Willy Dickert. She and a group of Boys and Girls in her neighborhood walked four miles to get the advantages of this school. They left at daylight and returned home at dark.
Immediately following the war, Mrs. Bolin had the good fortune to attend a boarding school in the home of Mrs. Chapin. Here her teacher was Ms. Laura Gowan of Union. There she was crowned Queen of the May at a Mayday festival. Wearing her sister Narci’s beautiful white wedding dress and a crown of flowers, she made a very happy Queen.
In speaking of her experiences during the war Mrs. Boland tells of her family parching wheat to make a drink as a coffee substitute and sweetening it with cane syrup.
She also tells the story of Sherman's men as they marched through the Dutch Fork.
“A band of Yankees came to my father's gin house and set fire to it. Flax was stored under it and cotton inside. All was lost. Coming on up to our dwelling they would have burned that but their leader was a Mason and my father was one too so they exchanged a Masonic greeting and thus our house was saved. However one of the men asked my father, “Is it true that you have a good pistol hidden in a hollow tree in the woods as one of your colored people told us?” When father answered in the affirmative he was told to go get it. As he left the house we children all began to cry. One of the invaders named Weaver, a mean looking man, said to us in a gruff voice, “Here, here, you children! If you don't shut up we will have to give you something to cry for.” Oh, how we quaked.
Plundering around, waiting for the pistol, they found our dairy. Mother prided herself on being a good housewife. That dairy was spotless and well supplied with cream, milk and butter that day. Every Yankee was summoned to the feast but before they tasted a thing, one man looked mother straight in the eye and said, “Madam, tell the truth, is there any poison in this milk?” Mother answered in her quiet dignified manner, “No indeed, I have never poisoned anything in my life.” They all pitched in and nothing was left in the dairy but empty crocs.
Many changes and much progress have been seen by Mrs. Boland during her life. Her relatives and friends are wishing for her a happy birthday and many more.

HELENA
The Ghost of a Once Thriving Suburb
By G. Leland Summer
 
We would not call the suburban village of Helena a ghost town as expressed in western parlance, even though the old machine shops and the people who worked in them have gone. For many families have since that time resided and many still reside within the community.
The village streets are narrow and the few sidewalks are unpaved, indicating its early beginning. The large trees that are left in its once large shaded grove were not so many years back, where families held picnics, barbecues and campaign meetings. These are relics of this once industrial village.
The site of the old Union Church which stood many years after the War Between The States was beyond the village about 200 yards to the right of the railroad near the edge of some pine trees. The old graveyard shows some early markers, one square enclosed within a heavy iron picket fence – graves of some early Germans who are employed in the shops.
There were many private schools in the community taught at different times by men and women of the old school. They continued until the state graded school system started. The instructors were highly cultured and well-educated.
Some early families of the village were the Bowers, Coates, Leonardths, Summers, Zobel's and others.
The Leonardths and Zobel's came directly from Germany while others moved from various parts of the County. The late Mrs. Kate Coates was a native of Wales coming to this section when quite a young girl. It was Jacob Bowers, an employee of the railroad who was captured by Yankee soldiers in 1865 and was about to be shot for cutting a Negro who had insulted a young white lady when Young Calvin Crozier, who was the guilty one, came to the Yankee camp (a Negro Troops camp) and admitted that he was the guilty one. He could have saved himself but did not want to see another person die for what he had done.
Another Civil War story is related by the late Col. D. A. Dickert in his History of Kershaw's Brigade that one of the bravest Germans in the Confederate Army was the young Helena boy Julius Zobel. At the Battle of KnoxvilleTennessee while serving as private in the company of Capt. James D. Nance he was captured and taken to the Bastille prison, a reputed loathsome den in New Jersey. While there he was visited by the German Consul, who learning that he was not yet naturalized, endeavored to get him freed. The only condition upon which the Consul was able to get his freedom was that he join the Union forces. Young Zobel's reply to this proposal was that he would rather die in that hellhole then desert his friends and comrades, betray the flag under which he was serving.
An incident is related in the Annals of Newberry about the time when the wife of Pres. Jefferson Davis passed through Newberry with her sister on their way to their home in Alabama. The ladies were accompanied by a Confederate escort of 60 soldiers under Lieut. Parker who was transporting gold through the country. They stopped Newberry while the train was being repaired at the Helena shops. Then the railroad company gave them a special car from the shops in which they continued their journey through Georgia.
After the war between the states many families moved to the village. Allen Scruggs who was famous as an expert maker of wine and brandy may have come before the war. Many farmers brought their apples, peaches and grapes to him and took back home with them their bottled product. After his death his son-in-law H. Clinton Summers continued the business awhile and also operated a pool room in the two-story building now standing on the corner empty – another ghost of the past.
Dr. S. G. Walsh lived in the village for a time. He was a man of wide understanding, a Confederate surgeon of ability and well-liked. Many families have moved to the village at different times, most of whom have removed to other sections of the country. Among those who lived there during early times just after the war may be mentioned: Bowers, Cromer, Davis, Rikard, Roebuck, Coates, Shockley, Salter, Spearman, Hardy, Kibler, Julian, Lane, and others.
B. A. Julian operated a small grocery store on the corner just across from the old two-story Summers building. His son, Carl Julian, recently became known as a genius for color photography.
The remaining old relics of a once thriving community like many other places like it are but ghosts of other generations who are alive to the interest and romance of living. Some of these will be gone and nothing will be left to remind us of the people who possessed the spirit of goodwill and community association.

Memories of Kate Monts
Many years ago there came to Newberry County, then called Newberry district, a young man named a Lawrence Feagle. He was first married to Leah Quattlebaum and after her death he married her sister Rachel Quattlebaum. To Lawrence and Rachel Feagle was born a son George Feagle who married Margaret Houseal, the granddaughter of Capt. William Frederick Houseal Revolutionary War Patriot of the Dutch Fork. There were nine children in this family. Today only one child, a daughter, is living and she reached her hundred birthday on July 13, 1938 in Little Mountain, 2 miles from the old Feagle Homestead. Her name is Mrs. Kate Feagle Monts.
Though advanced in years her mind is clear, her sight is good and her hearing keen. She is as alert and as interested in life and the people around her as many people who are years younger.
Although she reads magazines and papers and keeps up with her happenings of today, she finds great joy and happiness in talking to old friends and relatives of the good old days. They particularly enjoy hearing her tell of her girlhood home which was located about halfway between Pomaria and Little Mountain. The two-story house was built of logs and ceiled with broad boards. The chimneys were built up several feet from the ground with homemade brick, the old Brickyard shop lying to the left of the house. The nails used in building the house were made in the shop. The roof was of hand-drawn shingles.
The kitchen was 25 feet or 30 feet behind the house and had a great chimney across one end of it. A flat iron rod was built in the chimney. On this hung the hooks which held the pots in which all meals were cooked. A spider, a vessel of iron, shaped like a deep pan with short legs, was always on the hearth with a supply of oak and hickory bark at hand to make coals to put under the spider and in the spider lid. In it chickens and rabbits were smothered deliciously, corn bread, biscuits and hoe-cake baked with a flavor otherwise unknown.
Behind the kitchen stood the Dutch oven. Wednesday and Saturday were big days. A supply of bread, pies, potatoes and peanuts were baked. The children of the family were fond of going with Betty, a slave, to gather great oak leaves in the fall. These were stored in barrels in the flower room. All winter loaves of bread and biscuits were baked on them and the flavor thus procured was most delightful.
In the early days the Feagles used water from a nearby spring but about 1848 they had Daniel Hamm dig them a well. Like Dutch Forkers, the Feagles used candles.
Mrs. Monts tells the story:
“Our kitchen woman, Nellie, was washing dishes one night and getting everything ready for breakfast, a very old colored friend, Jenny, had come that afternoon to spend a few days with Nellie and walking up to our kitchen that night, Jenny saw her first candle. She threw her hands up in amazement and said, “Lord God look what people can make these days.” What would Jenny say if she could walk in now?”
Kate Monts remembers well the first kerosene lamp the Feagles ever had. She was about 20 years old at the time. The lamp had a little round tin vessel to hold the oil and a glass chimney. The light from it was a little better than candlelight. She says, “Kerosene was scarce and we used that first lamp only when there was prayer meeting at our house or when we had company.”
Tales of the Feagle farm as they are recalled by Mrs. Monts are very interesting. She says: “My father owned several hundred acres of land. He cultivated what is grown here now accept the farmers now do not try to raise rice. They should not have quit. It is easy to grow and tastes so much better than rice we get from stores. Father had plenty of slaves and horses to do his farming. Besides the farm horses he had ‘BUCK’ for his riding horse. ‘Pidge’ was mother’s riding horse and ‘Pol’ was mine. Sister Lizzie often rode a pony named ‘Charlie’ but she was not afraid of any horse and would ride anything she could get on. Mother had chickens, turkeys and geese. We children had good times hunting the turkey nests. Often we went up in trees and watched the turkeys all morning to find where they laid. The foxes were bad for geese. Mother had a four-square rail pen made to keep her geese in at night. It was our job to fasten up the geese every evening. And such fun as we had at plucking time! We plucked in the stable and didn’t the feathers fly. The geese spent lots of their time in the woods pasture which had been built especially for the sheep. We kept enough sheep to furnish the family with wool for blankets and some for clothing. We worked up some of the wool and wove it at home and some we sent away.
Weaving cotton cloth was fun. When I was 10 years old I learned to spin. At 14 I was weaving just like my mother. A good weaver could make 4-5 yards of cloth a day and 6 yards if the cloth was quite coarse. We used a sleigh and harness to weave, 400 sleigh making a coarse cloth, 500 a little finer and we used 600 for our dresses and household linen. I have woven over 700 sleigh, carrying a number of shuttles to make check and stripes. Each color had to have its own shuttle. We always colored the thread before we wove it. For dye we used red and white oak bark, sumac
berries, dogwood roots, walnut hulls and copperas. The dye pots sat in the kitchen chimney year in and year out and we had better not get any grease about them either! We had several spinning wheels and several looms. They were in use always for there were the slaves to be clothed as well as our family.”
Prince was the outstanding slave in the Feagle family. He had been reared by the Rev. F. J. Wallern, a Lutheran minister and had been willed to Lawrence Feagle, who in turn willed him to George Feagle. He ate food from his master's table while the other slaves cooked and ate in their own cabins. He would not taste wild meat but he was a great hunter. He often went out before day and came home with two or three fine fat wild turkeys on his back.
When Mrs. Kate Monts was asked where her father bought his slaves and how much he had to pay for them she said, “Well, I remember Nellie for instance. My father went to John Barre’s sale and bought Nellie for $900. He had his men getting out cross ties all winter and he sold enough of them to the Greenville & Columbia railroad in 1851 when they laid the tracks from Columbia to Greenville, to buy Nellie. After she had been on the plantation a short time she married Clinton, a fine man father had bought the year before. When Sister Lizzie married, father gave Lula to her.
“Then I recall Anne. She belonged to Jake Bowers. After Jake's death when they were planning his sale, Anne slipped over to our house and begged my father to come to the sale and buy her. Slaves often pick their masters this way when they could. Father bought her and built her a cabin down below our kitchen. She was a good hoe hand and good in the kitchen. I can remember yet how delicious her biscuits tasted. Anne’s husband belonged to the Wedemans and he only came to see her on Sundays. He occasionally spent Wednesday night with her if he could get a pass. I remember once that Prince wanted to go over to Hope Section to see his wife who belonged to the Eptings. Father was not at home so I wrote a pass for Prince with a pencil. Luckily he went over and back with no trouble but my father said, “Kate, don't ever write a pass again except with ink. If the patrol had caught Prince with the pass you gave him he would have had a terrible night.” I have always remembered that.
Referring to the kind of literature which was read in the home, besides the Scriptures and the church paper, Mrs. Monts related that her father would drive over to Pomaria, the nearest post office, about 2 miles eastward and bring the mail to his home where it was distributed throughout the community. Mail was brought by the stagecoach before the coming of the railroad in 1851. Pomaria was directly in the stagecoach route from Charleston to Spartanburg and northwestward. The Palmetto State Banner, which began publication in Columbia in 1846 was the secular newspaper which was received in the Feagle home and Mrs. Monts says the girls especially were always eager for its visits on account of the serial love stories which it always contained.
Mrs. Monts received all her education in an old field school located less than a mile from her home. The building was made of logs with a fireplace across one end. The writing desk was made across the opposite end. The teacher's desk was near the fire. The students’ desks were crude slabs with legs of various heights. There were shelves along the wall to hold the dinner buckets and pegs under the shelves for bonnets, caps and coats.
Mrs. Monts recalls pleasantly various teachers, for instance: William Curry, Henry Houseal, John Lee, Calvin Kinard, Sam Miller and Charles Dukes. She studied the blue-back speller, McGuffey's readers, Smith's grammar and remembers that they had an atlas in connection with their geography.
She says, “The last lesson every day was a class in dictionary spelling – Webster at that! Well do I remember that class of 22 Boys and Girls, some of the boys with beards. We spelled online and gave the meaning of the words. That was a good thing. It made one learn a variety of facts. Once I spelled them all down on the word ECLAIRCISSEMENT. Luther Aull was a good speller and it went hard with him to miss that word.
We made our own ink by mashing red Oak balls and soaking them in water for two or three days. We strained this through a fine cloth, added copperas and our ink was ready. The first real ink I ever saw was a small vial bought from Charleston. The teacher had it on her desk for show. Writing was an art in the old days. We spent hours and hours writing with our quill pens on foolscap.
On being asked if she ever got in trouble at school or ever had to stay in she said, “I did. Capt. Billy Kinard had a horse named ‘Rock’. His daughter Jane and I were sitting in school one day with nothing much to do. Jane picked up a book and started to jiggle it up and down and whispered, “Kate, this is the way old ‘Rock’ racks.” We giggled and then the teacher made both of us stand on the hearth and look in the chimney for 5 min.”
All of the Feagle family were Lutherans, members of St. Paul's church near Kibler's bridge. Mrs. Monts earliest recollections are of her father and mother going to church on horseback with their small children riding in front of and behind them. There were Sunday school, singing school and preaching. Some of the pastors were J. B. Anthony, J. P. Margart, William Berley, D. M. Blackwelder, Luther Moser, Jacob Aull, J. D. Singly and J. A. Sligh.
“We had no songbooks in those days”, she says. “Whoever knew the hymn lined it out and we all joined in. John Riser and Levi Monts generally raised the tune. Lizzy Counts and I sat together to sing soprano. Sister Josie and Fanny Counts sang alto. Henry Metts said that if he could just sit close to us he was transformed. Some people think Lutherans never shouted but in the good old days they did. They couldn't help it. They were just that happy.”
“The churches and the school in Newberry district were ready to make great progress when the war came along. We were in St. Paul's church, Rev. D. M. Blackwelder was preaching and clear as a bell, we heard the bombing in Charleston. That was a sad day. The pastor talked of war and prayed for peace. There was an old muster field here  in Little Mountain where the boys drilled. When they were considerably ready they entrained at Pomaria and were placed in a camp 2 miles out of Columbia at a place called Lightwood Knot. From there they went to Hardeeville near Charleston and then from there they were drafted into the regular army and put under real military men. We girls went to Pomaria to see our boys off. There they were laughing and waving farewell. They were dressed in good homespun clothing of every kind. Some had carpetbags and the others had bundles of extra clothing. The girls gave them scarves, wristlets, socks and earmuffs that they had knitted. I gave my sweetheart a New Testament. Some of the boys had autograph album and we wrote messages in them. This is what I wrote:
A thousand tongues would fall to tell
How I esteemed soldiers and how well
And may oh may fair freedom glow
Till heavens last thunder shall shake this world below
Those boys did not realize what was ahead of them.
The years passed, George Feagle went to the war in 1861. He was captured in Gettysburg in 1863 and died in prison at Point Lookout in 1864. The mother and daughters carried on at home with the aid of slaves. Mrs. Monts helped her mother sweep up the dirt in the meat house and boiled it to get salt for their food. Soon a shipment of grand salt came through from Charleston. Salt was as precious as money itself. We used it with precision.
Recollections of Sherman's passing through are very vivid. She relates interestingly many stories of the Yankees. “That was a cruel war and should never have been.”
George Michael Monts, her fiancé, returned from the war. He was released from prison at Point Lookout, came by boat to Charleston and walked to his home near Little Mountain. Soon afterwards on November 23, 1865 they were married. For a half century they live together interested in the development of their community.
Mrs. Monts thinks that if we see as much progress in the next hundred years as we have in the century through which she had passed America will indeed be a land of splendor.
