TRUST FUND FOR
To the Public:
Old iDuncan's Creek Presbyterian
church situated near Clinton, was first
ibuilt of logs hi the year 1766. It is
one of the oldest landmarks in the his
tory of this part of the country. It
took its name fron John Duncan, the
-lirst lwhite man to settle in the upper
part of the state.
The congregation was composed of
some of the most illustrious sons and
daughters of that time. No more sacred
landmark stan(ds in the upper part of
South Carolina than Duncan's Creek
church and its burying ground. The
extorior walls of this old church heatr
the marks of the seasons come and
gone through many decades since the
old structure was completed, and I
nm sorry to see it Is now fast crumb
ling with age. Will the forth-coming
generation of the Revolution, when
America struggled for a name and it
place on the earth, let these venera'ble
walls ever be hoin dowin. If so. shame
Adjoining this church is the vine
grown cemetery where the as'hes of
many of the brave patriots and pio
neers, our mothers and grandmothers
have long since cominled hvith the
0arth1. There on the old worn and
weather-stained tombs that have
bottrne the rains and storms for more
than one hundred years mark their
tombs, with noble citizens and revo
lutionary 'oldiers who bled and died
for our liberty found too, their last
earthly rcsting place in this old grave
yari-d. Will we turn our backs and
neglect our dlty we owe to our' fore
'ather ? No! .\any of us are deplor
ing the condition, have arodsed inter

tion to raise an nidowimerit funtid foi
