The Norton's of South Carolina originally lived near Gillisonville then moved to Robertville in Jasper County. The story is told that during the Civil War Alexander Calhoun was a spy for the confederacy. On one of his missions to Virginia, dressed in a Union uniform, he came to a farm and began asking directions about the Union Army. Mary was living on that farm with her grandparents. (She was raised by Annie Edmunds) Mary and Alexander exchanged gifts and he promised to return after the war.

Alexander was once captured by the Union Army and sentenced to die but his guard fell asleep and Alexander killed him, took his gun, slit the tent open and escaped.
The 1880 Census has them living in Poplar- Orangeburg SC
