Branchville, 8. C,
February 12tb, 1879.
Editor Orauyrburg Time? :
About three quarters of a mile
bi low hero in n Stream culled Pen
Bran h from which Branchville
derived its name. The site of the
town was originally a vast cypress
pond, in which abounded tadpoles,
terrapins and various kinds of small
f-.dics?a dense forest of undergrowth
which lined the outskirts of the pond,
made the locality a famous hiding
place lor deer, and many an old buck
made his last leap near where the
Steam whistle now takes tho place of
the hunters horn.
The first settlers here were Mr.
Philip Chart rand and a Mr. Bason,
both Frenchmen. The former of
these built an catiug house somewhat
South of where the present hotel
stands, where the tva\ elling public
regaled themselves on good things
Jor the inncrmau bef?re the writ er
of this article bad beeu born to this
"splendid sceuc'of busy woe." After
the lapse of lime the South Carolina
Railroad constructed a branch of its
line from here to Columbia, which
added to this quondam cypress pond
the dignity of an important j unction.
Travel increased rapidly, and Mr.
Chartrand, being briinf.il ofeuergy
and pluck, conceived tho idea of
erecting an eating house ou a'larger
sea e, and in the fork of the two
roads. Tiie present hotel was the
result of this resolution. Mr Chart
i'and kept it lor a number of years,
and achieved lor it a deal of celebrity
with travelers. But thin was tho
long ago where travel via this place
from and to the North was very
. In the days which the preceding
paragraph refers to. there were bui
three merchants here, namely, John
D. D. F'airy, Daniel Loeb and YV. H.
Mr. F. W. Fairy, one of the old
landmarks of bottar days, wax the
railroad agent. Mr. Jas. B. Berry,
who still livee an honored citizen in
our midst, owned all the land South
j of the Railroad, and upon which the
principal par*, of the town now stands,
the first lot having^been sold by him
to Gaskin in 1837. From this lime
' on, the growth of tho'plaoe was like
the tortoise's speed. In 1858 it was
incorporated, having then about
thirty-five or forty inhabitants. Dr.
O. H. Ott wa> elected first Intaud
ant. The town commenced now to
put on airs, and nightly our streets
and paths wire patrolled .
For a number of years previous to
the war Branchville boasted of splen -
did educational advantages. Gen.
James F. 1/1 ur and Ids brother, Mr.
B. T. Izla-, at one time, hadallouris h
ing schools here, and left the impress
of their c< rrcct lives upon the minds
of many ol their pupils.
The progress of the town, however,
was inconsiderable until subsequent
j to the war. After recovering from
the stagger given it by this intern -
ccuo strife, a steady advancement
became . otueable. E. J. W. Meyers
was elected the first Intendant after
the war (in which position he diod)
when a system of drainage was in
augurated which added considerably
to its hcalthfulne s. Although many
of our citizens 'suffered severely in
consequence of the impoverishment
entailed upon them by tho loss^of
their property, a new lifo took p os
session of the place v nl ;i3 surround
ings, and a steady advancement was
at once developed. In I860 the
place numbered between two and
three hundred inhabitants, and about
five stores. lbs population now ex
ceeds eight hundred; while there are
some twenty odd stores in full blast,
the principal ones being owuod by L
W. Loryea, B. D Meyers. J. D.
Rhoadi, D D. Meyers, Asberry
Dukes, F. P. Bruce and J. D D.
Fairy. Messrs. Johu Byrd, F. W.
Syfrett, Jacob Kareth and Crook
Bruce are rip" g young merchants,
and succeed r j well iudividing the
trade of their senior*. The town
boasts uIbo of two woli appointed d rug
stores, a couplo of hotels, And ono
privatotboarding house. The streets
have been improved and aro linod on
either side with flou riBhing young
Elm trees. The unsightly ditches
which for so many years disgraced tho
nppcarnnce of the place, have been
filled up and olhcroutlots tot so con
spicuous, have been made totakeotT
the water. The Hon. W. H. Reedish
has held the position of Intendant fo r
five terms, and is identified with]al
most every improvement made hero
since tho war.
Within tho incorporate limits are
two steam mills and one water mill ; j
one fine Baptist Church for white3; j
a Church for colored Bapti st, and
j one also fur those who belong.to the
I A. M, M, E. Church. From'what I
can learn the peoplo'attond "meet
ing," 119 it is callad, very generally,
which speaks well for tho'_society of
j tho place.
j There sarc three physicians here,
a nd one dentist; two lawyers and ono
Trial Justice, Mr. Reediah combining
a Justice and a disciple of Blackstoue
in himself. The four oldest inhabi
tants of the pla ce are/ J. D. D. Fairy,
M. A. T homas, Jas. B. Berry and \V.
One of tho mostinoted feature of
B rauchvillc, and without which the
town would be minus of its strongest
claims to nutiquity , is to be found in
the stands ol the old cake women.
Since ihc day whon the whistle of tho
first engine firghteued tho rabbits
then hereabouts, the'*old\ eako wo
men have been found wending their
w ay to each passenger train stopping
at Branehville. Two of thorn are
iiow Hying, who sold "hard bilod
eggs" over.thirty yeHrs'ago.-^. But for
every one that old age drives from the
business, there are generally one^or
i two younger ones to fill up the
j vacum. Winter and summer,
through sunshine or rain, in sleet or
snow, the passenger halting at this
place is ever destined to hear the
familiar cry, "Hero's verbot collet
and hard biled aigj"
Politicians may forget their pledges
to their constituents: Hayes may
have become oblivious^ of the.fact
that he stole the Presidency from
Tilden; and tho "Whnngdoodle to
m ourn for its first born, but the cake
Bellcrs of Branehville will never for
get to offer to tho travelling public '
biled eggs two weeks old; chicken
fried over three or four timen, with
other things too nice to mention.
There arc^otne two hundred thous
and dollars, and over, of goods sold
here annually; and last year nearly
two th' usand bales of cotton wore
shipped from bore to Charleston, be
sides 'great .qualities of small grain.
Mr. Loryea alone sent off two thous
and bushels of rough rice. This will
give you an idea of the business done
here. Indeed, Branehville ela'ins to
be a place of no mean importance,
ami having now passed entirely into
the hands oi Democrats, upward aud
onward will bo hor futuro career. If
the people here would just per.a it
themselves to forget politico for a
while, and devoto their time nnd
energies to the material development
of the town' it would not bo long be
fore a greater prosperity than that
now observable would dawn upon her
While other towns of greater pre
tensions uro disli nguished for d ilapi
datiou and the lack of thrift: and
go-n-headitivoness, Branchvillo is im
proving daily, Mr. D. D. Meyers
has now in process of construction a
fine dwelling, while Mr. B D. Meyers
is improving and beautifying his
place. The sounbs of tho handsaw
and the hammer are not unfamiliar
here There is some work always
There is one citizen here, who is so
proud of the place Lo it In takes a cry
every time busnies- e nnpo s him to
