C. about five miles from Fair Bluff, N. C.; he was then an old man, whiter hair and red face; he had a son named Charles - he may have had other sons, but Charles is the only one that concerns Marian County; he married a Miss Hodge, sister of the late Dr. Samuel Hodge, in the Gapway neighborhood; by her he had two sons, George W. and Robert H.
