Piedmont 1eetion of South Carolina
was the backwoods of .thle country
and was inhabited by the Cherokee
and Choetaw Indians. It was in
1750 that Capt. James Francis and
his two sons, Allan jind Henry, in
coipayiv with other pioneers estab
.lished a trading Iost in what is now
GrCenwood county, with the Chero
kee Indian.. Alla n IFrancis, with his
father, frequently visited the Chero
kee country (i1 trading expeditions.
li)uring these visits he beame ae
qua inted with Cmleechee, Who was a
slave to the li chief Kuruga, 10-l a
captive Choeinw maiden. She was a
beau tifu l i'i 'n A Ilklin Francis be
came an faim ored with * her personal
chamis. A fe' yvars after the es
taIbliShieun t of the trading post, Ku
ruga detvermi'ned to massacre the
traders and appropriate their effects.
The Plot was betrayed by Catecchee,
who rodo through the forest from
Keowee, a famous Cherokee town
located at Keowee river, in what is
now Pickens county, to Ninety Six,
im wVhat is now Creenwood county.

Some years after this event young
lFrancis and 'atechee were captured
by Cherokee braves and carried into
the Cherokee country, where they re
mained for nearly two years. One
iight duriing a terrillic storm they
made their escape and fled to Stump
House Mountain, just above Walhal
ia. This mountain gets its name from
the fact that Francis used the stumps
of fouri trees as pillows to the hut'
which he built. Kuruga learning of
the whereabouts of his former capt
