INTRODUCTION

These marriage and death notices from the Abbeville Banner, 1846-1860, have been compiled to facilitate the studies of historians, genealogists, and others interested in local family history.

Two early Abbeville newspapers have proved to be rich resources for the student of upcountry South Carolina history. The Banner, a weekly publication founded in 1844, served primarily the Abbeville District which comprised what are now Abbeville, Greenwood and McCormick Counties. Charles H. Allen was founder and first editor. The newspaper came under the proprietorship of Henry S. Kerr in the summer of 1851. During 1852, Charles H. Allen and F. A. Fair purchased the paper, serving jointly as editors and publishers. On April 21, 1853, F. W. Selleck took over the newspaper, and a large indebtedness, from Allen and Fair. J. H. Logan and W. C. Davis became editors in 1854. James Hollingsworth had an interest in the paper in 1855, but sold it to T. B. Crews on March 17, 1857.

Although there were frequent turnovers in ownership and management, publication was regular; and, more than a century later, we are the richer for that fact.
The Abbeville Independent Press, a competing weekly, was founded in May, 1853 by B. L. Posey, who was also its first editor. C. C. Puckett and George W. Fant were editors in 1854; however, on July 29 of that year, Fant retired and M. Puckett joined his brother on the editorial staff. On October 10, 1856, W. A. Lee and William Henry Wilson purchased the paper, with Lee becoming editor and Wilson taking charge of the business and mechanical departments. W. A. Lee became sole owner of the paper in 1859.

The fact that there were two competing newspapers in Abbeville after 1853 was an upcountry phenomenon. With the exception of the capital city of Columbia, and Greenville, no other upcountry community could boast of two weekly newspapers. The Banner was an outspoken secessionist paper during the 1850's and, ironically, it appears to have died with the realization of its advocated position. The Independent Press, on the other hand, supported the ideals of James L. Orr and the National Democrats who desired the preservation of the union through a strong national party. Counseling moderation, it remained in existence throughout the war, later changing its name to The Abbeville Press.

The newspapers used in preparing this volume are from the files of the Abbeville Press and Banner on microfilm in the McCain Library, Erskine College, Due West, South Carolina. The collection begins with Volume II, No. 51, February, 1846 and concludes with Volume XVI, February, 1860. The collection, unfortunately, is by no means complete. For several years there are only scattered issues. Also, not every issue contained marriage and/or death notices. The column of marriage announcements is headed "hymenial", a variation of the archaic noun, "hymeneal", meaning "a wedding hymn". The death column is headed, simply, "Obituary". (Note from webmaster: 1849 has been ommited; reasons unknown)

For additional study of the two Abbeville newspapers of this period, see: Ruble, Ben, "Early Newspapers of Abbeville, South Carolina", unpublished senior seminar paper, Erskine College, Due West, South Carolina, 1953; and Ellen, John Calhoun, Jr., "Political Newspapers of the Piedmont Carolina in the 1850's", unpublished doctoral dissertation, University of South Carolina, Columbia, South Carolina, 1958.

Spelling of names is as it appears in the newspaper.
Abbreviations, also from the newspaper, are:
inst. for instant, meaning a "date in the same month as that of the publication of the particular issue”;
ult. means ultimo and refers to a date in the month immediately preceding;
l. e. means long eulogy, which has been omitted in this volume;
C. H. means Court House; and
Dist. refers to District, since the state was then divided "into districts rather than counties.
A number of marriage announcements contain the abbreviation
“S.L”, which probably means sine loco, "without place".
Other abbreviations are either in common usage today, or are self-explanatory.
Entries are grouped by year, and the month and day of the issue are noted in brackets following each entry.

In her last moments, while her friends and relations were solicitously encircling the bed, and death seemed to be stealing over her like a serene slumber, she waked as if from a profound reverie, and told them not to grieve for her, that she relied implicitly on her Savior, felt secure in the reliance, and earnestly entreated them to do the same. She has left a large and affectionate family, and an extensive circle of friends and acquaintances to mourn her irreparable loss, but we feel confident their loss is her everlasting gain. Friend.

DIED, the 14th inst., at his residence near Greenwood in this District, CAPT. ANDREW LOGAN, at the advanced age of 93 years. Capt. Logan, in the bloom of manhood, was present at the siege of Ninety-Six, which began the morning of the 23d of May, 1781; and afterwards became an active partisan in the desultory warfare sustained by the gallant Moore and his compatriots, against the predatory and remorseless bands of Tories who ravaged the country on the disastrous retreat of Green from Ninety-Six. Near the close of the same year, (1781) he marched with Gen. Pickens in his famous expedition
against the Cherokee Indians; in which, at the head of three hundred and ninety-four mounted men, in a campaign of only fourteen days, he burned thirteen ·towns, killed forty Indians, and took a large number of prisoners, without the loss of a man from his party.
In private life, he was a most indulgent father and master; temperate in his habits, indefatigably industrious; amiable and retiring in his disposition, but of iron will, and a physical constitution whose strength it required near a century to exhaust. A soldier, in his early life, in the cause of human right, it was the glory of his old age to live and die a Soldier of the Cross .

Mysterious and afflictive are many of the dispensations of all-wise and righteous God. -The subject of this notice was only to be known to be loved for his many agreeable and amiable traits, both of head and heart. He was sociable, benevolent, and liberal, a good neighbor and citizen, and a firm and reliable friend. He pro­fessed his faith in the Savior, and his general char­acter for truthfulness gives assurance of its being made in honesty of heart and sincerity of purpose. But, in the midst of his days he was suddenly cut down and his sun set in a cloud. Complaining of being unwell he took laudanum, and it is supposed that the effects of the laudanum in connection with a disease of the heart, to which he was subject, caused his sudden death. He was aware that his end was at hand and breathed his last saying, "Lord Jesus receive my spirit." He leaves a young and affectionate wife and two children of tender age, an aged mother and brothers and sisters with numerous friends andrelatives to mourn his untimely and sad death. He has fallen in the hands of righteous but merciful God, who will do right. "The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away, and blessed be the name of the Lord." W.P.H. (Banner, February 16)
