Note of Interest:

A letter written by William David Bolin in SC to his half brother in Clarke Co., Alabama is in possession of Walter Ashley Davis, Jr, Jackson, Alabama. He sent a copy of said letter to me on May 19, 2004.


The heading on the letter says Orangeburg District, Feb. 14, 1860. At the end of the letter he says to direct your letters to Barnwell, Blackville P.O., So. Ca.

I finally got all of the stuff copied for you and will get it in the mail tomorrow (Wed.).
