THE CALHOUK FAMILY OF SOUTH CAROLmA. 

By a. S. Salley, Jr. 

The earliest authentic records we have of the presence in 
America of the four founders of the Calhoun family of South 
Oarolina, James, Ezekiel, William, and Patrick, are to be 
-bund at Staunton, Virginia, among the records of Augusta 
Oonnty, which about the middle of the eighteenth century 
3rti braced a great part of western Virginia. 

On September 19, 1746, James Patton complained that 
Fa Ties, Ezekiel, William and Patrick Col boon were di\7.ilgers 
)f false news to the great detriment of the inhabitants of the 
jolony and it was ordered that they be committed for the 
'November Court. ^ 

'l^Avember 19, 1746, George, Ezekiel, William, and Patrick 
Ihoon were appointed workers on a road from Reed Creek 
Eagle Bottom and thence to the top of the ridge that parts 
3 waters of New River and those of the' south fork of 
Jioanoke. James Colhoon was appointed overseer.^ May 
, 1747, James Cohoon was appointed a constable on Roan- 
e. Thomas CohoSn received a similar appointment. ^ 
March 25, 1748, a tract' of 335 acres of land on Reed 
ebk was surveyed for William Calhoun as part of land 'of 

ilrfli^ Patton, Robert Slaughter, &c., in accordance with

June 3, 1752, John Vance sold to Robert Miller a tra©P)f 
land in Augusta Connty, on William Calhoun's Meadow 
Run, a branch of Reed Creek. A document of 1794 recites 
that John Vance was then dead and that Jacob Vance,, jfeis

objected and the Court was of the opinion that the cause be 
continued and the same jury try the issue." 

May 22, 17-53, the jurors in the cause of Patton vs Cal- 
houn failed to appear and were sunamoned to the next 
court.^* 

Auajust 18, 1753, a mandamus was issued from the Gen- 
eral Court to the County Court of Augusta requiring it to 
dismiss the jury in the cause of Patton vs James Calhoun, 
which was doi\e and the case continued." 

April 8, 1754, sixty-four acres of land on the head waters 
of. Hay's Creek, a branch of James River, were surveyed

May, 1754, James Patton vs James Cohoon, Slander: 
Cohoon said, in 1750, that Patton had made over all of his 
estate to his children to defraud his creditors and that he 
had no title to the lands he ottered for sale on Koanoke and 
New rivers. Mandamus from the General Court to dis- 
charge the jury from rendering a verdict.^* 

May 20, 1754, the cause of Patton vs Calhoun was sub- 
mitted to arbitration. Patton had obligated himself to de- 
liver two patents for land to Calhoun at a time when there 
was no fee to the Governor for signing the patents. Before 
the patents were obtained by Patton a law was enacted 
giving the Governor a fee. Patton charged this to Calhoun. 
The ?,ward was that each pay the fee for one patent.'* 

In 1756 James, Ezekiel, William and Patrick Calhoun 
and their sister, Mrs. Mary Noble, widow of John JSToble,. 
and their mother, Mrs. Catherine Calhoun, removed to Soutli 
Carolina, arriving, according to a lettef written by John C 
Calhoun^, a son of Patrick, in February. They settled on 
Long Cane Creek, Prince William's Parish, Granville

In 1760 the Cherokee Indians began to give trouble to the 
people of the CJp-Country of South Carolina and on the first 
day of February, 1760, while the people of the Long Cane 
Settlement were removing with their families to Augusta for 
safety they were attacked and twenty-three of the number 
were slain. The following contemporar}- accounts of the 
massacre were published : 

"Yesterday se'nnight the whol of the Long-Cane Settlers, 
to the Number of 150 Souls, moved off with most of their 
Effects in Waggons; to 20 towards Augusta in Georgia,and 
in a few Hours after their setting off, were surprized and 
attacked by about 100 CJterokees on Horseback, while they 
were getting their Waggons out of a boggy Place : They had 
amongst them 40 Gunmen, who might have made a very good 
Defence, but unfortunately their Guns were in the Waggons; 
the few that recovered theirs, fought the Indians Half an 
Hour, and were at last obliged to fly: In the action they 
lost 7 Waggons, and 40 of their People killed or taken (in- 
cluding Women and Children) the Rest got safe to Augusta; 
whence an Express arrived here with the same Account, on 
Tuesday Morning." ^* 

"Mr. Patrick Calhoo)i, one of the unfortunate Settlers at 
Long- Canes, who were attacked by the Cherokees on the 1st 
Instant, as they were removing their Wives, Children and 
best Effects, to Augusta in Georgia for Safety, is just come 
to Town, and informs us, ' That the whole of those Settlers 
mio^ht be about 250 Souls, 55 or 60 of them fio^htin^ Men: 
that their Loss in that Affair amounted to about 50 Persons,

Vol. II. (1901), pp. 162-163. 

^*The South-Carolina Gazette, Saturday, February 9, 1760. The Ga- 
zette further states that the report was based on information brought 
by Mr. Aaron Price who had just arrived in Charles Town from 
Ninety Six.

chiefly Women and Children, with 13 loaded Waggons and 
Carts; that he had since been at the Place where the Action 
happened, in order to bury the Dead, and found only 20 of 
their Bodies, most inhumanly butchered; that the Indians 
had burnt the Woods all around, but had left the Waggons 
and Carts there empty and unhurt; and that he believes all 
the fighting men would return to and fortify the Long-Ganc 
Settlement, were part of the Hangers so stationed as to give 
them some Assistance and Protection."-* 

"We have no late Advices from Fort Prince-George, or any 
Consequence from Places in that Poute. But from Fort 
31oore, we learn, that a Gang of about 18 CJurokees, d'wided 
into 3 or 4 Parties, on the 15th Instant, way-laid, killed, and 
scalped Ulric Ihbler, Esq ; a Captain of Militia in those Parts, 
as he was riding from his Father's to that Fort; and shot 
Mr. WiWam Calhoon, who was with him, in the Hand: 3 
other Persons, who were in Company escaped uniiurt: the 
Indian who killed Capt. J()6fer, left a Hatchet sticking in his 
Neck, on which were 3 old Notches, and 3 newly cut."'" 

Patrick Calhoun subsequently erected two stones to mark 
the site of the Long Cane massacre, upon the larger of 
which appears the following inscription: 

Pat'\ Calhoun Es'^ 
In Memory of Mrs. 
Cathrine Calhoun 
Aged 76 Years who 
WITH 22 others was

The South-Carolina Gazette of Monday, October 8, 1764, 
referring to the proceedings of the General Assembly in 
Jnne preceding, said: 

"On the 5th, they likewise voted pay for a company of rangers, for 
six months, to protect the Long-Canes settlement, against the incur- 
sions of Indians; to consist of a commission officer, a Serjeant, and 20 
men; of which Patrick Calhoun, Esq; is appointed captain, who serves 
without pay." 

Patrick and William Calhoun were both made Justices of 
the Peace for Granville County and subsequently (after 1769) 
for Ninety Six District under the Provincial Government, 
and at the election held on the 7th and 8th of March, 1769, 
Patrick Calhoun was elected to the Commons House of As- 
sembly from Prince William's Parish and served until the 
next election, in October, 1772, the first representative from 
the Up-Country. 

At the commencement of the Revolutionary struggle in 
South Carolina, Patrick Calhoun was sent as a deputy to the. 
first Provincial Congress (January 11, 1775-November 1, 

1775) from Ninety Six District and was reelected to the 
second Provincial Congress (November 1, 1775-March 26, 

1776) and as a member of that body became a member of 
the first General Assembly (March 26, 1776-October 21, 
1776) of the State of South Carolina when that Congress 
adopted an independent constitution on March 26, 1776, and 
resolved itself into a General Assembly. He subsequently 
served in almost every House of the General Assembly 
until his death. He was elected one of the county court 
judges for Abbeville County, Ninety Six District, in 1791, as 
shown by the following extracts from The Citt/ Gazette or 
The Daily Advertiser (Charleston) for Friday, March 4, 1791. 

"In the House of Representatives, February 18, 1791. 
"Resolved, That the following persons be, and they are hereby 
elected and appointed judges of the several county court, hereafter 
mentioned," 

* * * * 

"Abbeville. 
Patrick Calhoun, James Lincoln, Andrew Hamilton." 

Patrick Calhoun died on the 15th of February, 1796, and 



10 THE CALHOUN FAMILY OF SOUTH CAKOLINA. 

the City Gazette (f Daily Advertiser for Monday, March 7, 

1796, contained the following notice of his death: 

" Died, on Monday the 15th ultimo, at his seat in Abbeville county, 
the hon. Patrick Calhoun, esq. in the 69th year of his age. He had 
served as a member of the legislature in this State for many years; 
was the first person who ever acted in that capacity, from that part 
of the State in which he resided; and was a member of the Senate at 
its last session. During the past summer he was attacked with a 
lingering fever, which much enfeebled his constitution. On his return 
from Columbia, he was seized with a bleeding at the nose, which ex- 
hausted him gradually till his life came to a close. He was a friend 
to virtue and piety; and a foe to vice in every form; The fidelity and 
patriotism which he exhibited as a public character, are too well known 
and acknowledged, by most of his numerous acquaintance, to need any 
encomium or eulogium. " 



William Calhoun, one of the four brothers wlio came to 
South Carolina, kept a little journal"^ wherein he entered ac- 
counts, notes of fines he had imposed as Justice of the Peace, 
marriage records and the records of his own family. He 
therein records that he was married to Affnes Lona;, October 
19, 1749, and also records the following issue: 

1 I. Joseph Calhoun, born Oct. 22, 1750.

4 IV. Mary Calhoun, born Nov. 1, 1757, was carried oft
