How the Scots Settled in Duncan Creek, Laurens Co. SC #southcarolinapioneersnet #genealogy

The Scotch Settlement of Duncan Creek Presbyterian Church

Duncan Creek ChurchAbout 1758 John Duncan of Aberdeen, Scotland, going first to Pennsylvania, then removing to the fork of the Saluda and Broad Rivers, settled in South Carolina on the Enoree River. His nearest neighbor at the time was Jacob Pennington who lived below him on the Enoree River. About 1764 several families viz: Joseph Adair, Thomas Erving, William Hannah, Andrew McCrory and his brothers, built a house of worship and became elders of the church. These first settlers were known to be primitive, as they wore hunting shirts, leggins and moccasins. The hair was clubbed and tied up in a little deerskin or silk bag. Trade was carried on in skins and furs because deer and beaver skins were a lawful tender in payment of debts. A marble tablet was placed by the DAR on the front inside wall of the Duncan Creek Presbyterian Church of those who served during the Revolutionary War, namely: Joseph Adair, Sr., Joseph Adair Jr, James Adair Sr. Leonard Beasley, J. Bell, John Copeland, John Craig, James Craig, Robert Hanna, Thomas Holland, Robert Long Thomas Logan, Thomas McCrary Joseph Ramage, William Underwood and George Young Sr.   Laurens Co.
