People of Morgana Make ar
An appeal to the Grand Jury tc
give the patrons of the ferry at Shaw
and McKie mill site a safe ano
We, the patrons e Stevens
Creek ferry at the . .naw and Mc
Kie mill site do i ^re and beseech
the grand jur' ? investigate this
ferry. The conditions of this ferry
?are dangerous to both man and
beast. It is said that the county is not
responsible for any loss of life 01
property when crossing this ferry. Is
the county not responsible for a safe
way to cross this ferry? The cable,
at this writing, is in the bottom of
the creek with a raft on it.
Is not the ferryman supposed to
protect this cable? Half of the laboi
here has moved away. They say, be
cause when they want to cross out,
they can't, so moved across. Had it
not been for the ferries on the Sa
vannah rives last fall we could no1
have gone to market for weeks, only
by rail, which is very unsatisfactory,
when you have eggs, butter, milk and
ligestock to deliver in Augusta each
Will not the Grand Jury investi
gate and let1 the people in Edgefield
county know where the money wa?
used which was given for damaging
this ferry? Edgefield county nor the
roads in Edgefield county nor the
people in Edgefield county were dam
aged when the Power Company flood
ed our ferry. The ferry alone was
damaged. We want the Grand Jury
to see that this ferry gets its just
rights, and all that belongs to it.
The supposed ferryman has moved
' venty-five miles away and has left
m old negro 75 years old in charge
of the ferry, consequently, everyone
who wants to cross, puts himself or
herself, whichever the case may be,
across. Some of us have to pay a man
to cross us. Mrs. Reese went there to
cross with her baby, being unable to
ferry and nurse too, had to go back a
pace and pay a man to cross her over.
The ferryman receives $65 a month
from the county and he pays this old
man $37.50, so I am told, to put
across all who want to cross. The ne
gro is not physically able to handle
this ferry ^oat, therefore he does not
Sunday, R. C. Scott, wife and little
children, also O. B. Scott, G. W.
Spires and Miss Inez Scott sat on the
creek bank one hour and a quarter.
The old ferryman would not take the
boat over to them or even a bateau,
and a bunch of negroes were there
waiting to cross, who said they had
been there for two hours begging the
old man to cross them. However, Mr.
Scott succeeded in getting one of the
men to go ovt to a saw mill and bring
down a piece of bateau, which he
crossed over in, got the boat, and not
only crossed himself but all those
who had waited so long to cross. He
had to pay the man out of his cash
for getting the beteau besides getting
There has been more than one ap
peal to the supervisor : or a ferrj
boat which would be safe, but noth
ing has been done, only a plank oi
two tacked on the bottom. We think
it would be a disgrace to Edgefield
county for we people to have to build
a ferry boat and pay an extra ferry
man to have an outlet from oui
homes to market. We na?l to do thal
to get a road we could travel over
had to put up cash to have some ter
rible places patched up in the Mar
tintown road in order to get to Au

We have explained to you mer,
our situation and trust you will pul
forth every effort to better our con
dition, and we know men who act a?
grand jurors are sensible and intel
ligent, and we know they, will can
