ANCIENT HISTORY .
OF LAURENS COUNTY
Ridgcway, a Noted Character?His Den
and home ot rils Encounters With
Editor ADVERTISER: Please tell me
another. So son Henri you want an
other story? Two thhip it is almost
impossible to fill a boy with- tales and
something good to eat.
Let us talk a little about three noted
things that were once up here on Reedy
river, the old Block house, the Indian
village and ball ground and Ridgeway's
den. The Block house was built of
heavy oak logs and loop-holed to shoot
through and watch the movements of
the Indians. It was located on a con
ical hill near the mouth of the Ragsdale
branch on the line of Greenville and
Laurens counties and was used to pro
tect the women and children from the
Cherokee Indians when they went to
war with the white settlers.
ORKilN OF BASBBALL?
The Cherokee village was in the river
bottom, just above the new bridge and
the ball ground was near .the old resi
dence of David Traynham. It was a
large circular ring, beat down like a
ein us ring and in it the Indians played
their ball games. You see, boys, the
Indians had ball playing long before
you were horn. You can still plow up
fragments of earth ware, arrow heads
and some stone tomahawks. On the
hill aides are earthen mounds high as
your head, where the Indians were
buried. I can't account for the Block
house and Indian village being in a half
a mile of each other. To 1782 the
whites lived in Laurens district up to
the Ragidale branch and the Indians
owned and lived above this line in
Ridgeway den was a large sycamore
tree that once stood in the cove on
Reedy river. The cove was a rich bot
tom on the river enclosed by circular
hills which loomed up a hundred feet
above the river lew It was full of
large trees?some white oaks five feet
in diameter, and was a fine place for
game. If you went in there a squirrel
hunting you had to carry a rifle to shoot
the squirrels out of the high oaks.
Ridgeway used the sycamore for a hid
ing place in the Revolutionary War.
The tree forked into two largo limbs.
Ten feet above the ground an opening
was inside of the limbs large enough
for a man to crawl into. Here was his
place of refuge when the Tories got
after him. The cavity was large
enough to hold a bed stead. When In
got in he was as safe as a raccoon in
Boys, if you think I am exaggerating
about the size of Rldgeway tree, you
ask Col. James II. Traynbam of Lau
rens. He has been to this tree many
At the tan yard ford one day the
Tories cut Ridgeway off from his den;
they pushed him so close he had to jump
into the river, As he struck the water
they fired their guns a1 him. Ho dived
back under the river bank and remained
until night came on, so he could escape.
The Tories watched a long time for
him to lise in the water. Not seeing
anything of him they said: "I guesfl
we got the old rascal this time. "
Ridgeway married a daughter of
Peter Ragsdale, whose mother was
Sallie Charlton of Virginia. Her father
was an Indian fighter under Col. Wash
ington and General Braddnck.

MR. E. BLACK CULBERTSON.
Dcatli of a Popular Young Citizen of
The death at his home at Honea Path
last Thursday morning of Mr. Black
Culbertson is sincerely regretted by
many relatives and a large circle of
friends throughout Laurens county, of
which the deceased was a native. Mr.
Culbertson had been ill for several
weeks, but his condition did not become
alarming until a few days before his
death, the announcement of which was
a shock to every one in Laurens who
knew the popular young citizen, genial
friend, and companion true.
The; funeral and burial services took
place at Broadmouth Church, near
Honea Path, Friday afternoon.
Mr. Culbertson was a son of Mr. and
Mrs. Young J. Culbertson of tekom, this
county, and was about thirty-five years
of age. He leaves a wife, who was a
Miss Kay of Honea Path, and two

RRV. LEWIS M. KOPER.
highly Complimentary Notice in Baptist
The Baptist Press, published at
Greenwood, in tin; issue of June 20th,
has the following to say regarding Rev.
Lewis M. Roper, pastor of the First
The Rev. Lewis M. Roper, I). D.,
pastor of the First Baptist Church at
Spartanburg recently has been ap
proached with reference to the pasto
rate of a large church in Baltimore. We
sincerely hope he may not feel called to
go, and thousands feel the same way.
At this writ ing it is not decided whether
he will go or not, and it is not an inop
portune time to speak hrielly of Mr.
Roper's career and his work in Spar
Lewis M. Roper i.s* a native of Laur
ens County and comes of sturdy stock,
his kinsmen being among the most val
ued and useful citizens of the county
and of decided interest in religious
work. He attended Furman University
and is an alumnus of it. Later he did
special work at the Columbian Univer
sity in Washington, after which he at
tended the Rochester Theological Sem
inary and graduated.
The first pastorate was an important
one at Canton, Ohio. At Canton Mr.
Roper preached for about live years
and was eminently successful. Then,
six years ago, the Spartanburg breth
ren went a-wooing for a pastor for t! a
First Baptist Church. A committee
went to Canton and sat under Pastor
Roper's voice. The up-shot of it was a
call to the pastorate of the Spartanburg
church, which Brother Roper accepted.
The wisdom of the call has six years
verification. The blessings which have
attended Dr. Roper's work in Spartan
burg are signal. In the six years of his
Spartanburg service the membership
lias increased from 400 to 750, the pas
tor's salary from $l,.r>00 to $2,000; nnd
the total annual contributions from
$4,000 to $7,000. The handsomest house
of worship in South Carolina has been
erected, which is worth $88,000. This
amount, is five-sixths paid.
These are some of the items of the
church's progress under his pastorate.
Our Southern idea of propriety makes
US hesitate to mention a lady even in a
religious paper, but even if we do not
secretly demur from this standard?
which wo do not- we cannot forbear to
say that Mrs. Roper, nee Miss Nonie
Mauldin, is not only greatly and de
servedly loved by everyone, but is a
rich success as a pastor's wife. To her
husband she is a faithful and most effi
cient aid in all of his work. Mrs. Roper
is a lady of great poise and common
sense and of gracious spirit and man
It is understood here that Mr. Roper
will probably not accept the call from
A Miraculous Cure.
The following statement by Ii. M.
Adams and wife, Henrietta, Pa., will
interest parents and others. "A miracu
lous cure has taken place in our home.
Our child had eczema r> years and was

about Electric Hit tors, and concluded to
