Some More History of
1 Old Pickens District
By N. BooNa CAREY
W ILLIAM L. ]KEITH was-the
fltet 'erk of thet court of
common plead' for Old
Pickens district,. served twenty
eight years consecutively and
died in office. He was very pop
ular and a remarkable man
was never defeated for any of
fice though often opposed by
good and strong men. He was
the father of our late brilliant
W. C. Keith, who will be remem
bered by many of your readers
as one of the best lawyers in the
upper part of the State. There
was another son, Elliott M., also
a lawyer, who Is said to have
been no less brilliant and able
than W. C. Besides these there
were Thomas, John and Marvin,
The first two (lied or were killed t
in our civil war, the latter hav- t
Ing died in Mississippi seveial I
years ago.There were two daugh- I
ters, Mrs. Mary Towns and Mrs.
Eliza Earle, both now of Green
ville. Many descendents of the
Keith family are living in Pick
ens, Greenville, Anderson and
Oconee counties and are among
the most respectable and influ
ential citizens of their respective
Col. Keith was succeeded in
the clerk's office by James E.
Hagood, who is well remembered
by many of us as a most effici
ent officer, kind and genial
gentleman. He represented the
county of Pickens one or two
terms in the legislature and for
many years was clerk of the
United States distirict court of
South Carolina. le died a few
years ago. LIe was the father
of A'. M. llagood and James E.
of Easley, B. A. Hagood of
Charleston, and Mrs. Mary Alex
ander of Picktns. All havesuc
(ceeded well in life. Mr. Hagood
was the last, clerk of the old dis
trict, so it will be seen there
were onl y t wo clerks during the
existence of the district.
I have heard my mother say
that i; the early days of O:d
Pickens there stood a pillory and
public whipping post on the
public . square where certain
malefactors were punished for
their misdeeds. I sometimes
think this method of punish
Iment would be1 more effective in
I preventing crime than that of
' the present day.
Within a mile of the old court
" house site there is a small plot
of ground called the "gallows
lot.,"' w here those condemned t.C
i dleath were publicly hanged,
3 Several wvere there publicly exe
>cuted without any of t he priyacy

- punished in those days-juron~
