HISTORY OF TiE
A distinctive feature of the hist-ry
of Winnsboro is its religious life.
The closing of the eighteenth cen
tury saw the organization of a Pres
byterian church in Winnsboro, a very
natural consequence of the large
Scotch and Scotch-Irish element, and
from these early ancestors the church
continues to hold a strong member
The Methodists were organized in
1.: building a brick church in that,
year, Rev. James Jenkins being the
first pastor. The present building
was erected in 1874 under the pastor
ate of Rev. A. J. Stafford' and the
direction of that leading layman, the
late Thomas Jordan.
The first Associated Reformed
Presbyterian synod was at the old
brick church in 1803. About 1820 a
a church was organized in Winns
boro. The congregation has had two
church buildings before the erection
of its present handsome eentennial
church a credit to the congregation
and the community. For 14 years
Rev. C. E. McDonald had been the
pastor of the congregation, which in
1906 for all purposes raised nearly
In the 30's and' 40's there was a
decided movement of low-country
people and the organizatien of an
Episcopal church, St. -John's parish,
followed about 1840. The church
erected in 1842 was burned by Sher
man in 1865. Another church was.
built and also destroyed by fire in
1888. The present church was erecL
e in 1894.
- The early days of the Baptis
church , organized -in the 5
1existence. The iembrship W
small, but in that. little band were
some heroic souls who toiled on. Lit
tle by little the congregation grew till
now it is the third largest congrega
tion in town.
In Winnsboro is found a fine illus
tration o Christian union in that in
ion services are held each Sabbath
evening in the various churches in
The churches of Winnsboro in their
increased membership and in their
material advancement reflect not only
a greater interest on the part of the
members in the houses of worship,
but also the prosperity of the town,
for the increase in many instances
has been due to the moving in of new
There are also five churches of the
colored people in Winnsboro and these
are all in prospeerous conition.
AMERICAN RED CROSS.
The Red Cros canteen reserves at
Charlotte, N. C., have recently pro
vided splendid recreational equipment
for an out of door play ground at
U. S. P. H. S. Hospital, No 26,
Green, S. C. The entire equipment
was provided at the expense of be
tween $600 and $700 and is to be a
memorial of their work during -the
war. The Commarndng Officer at
the camp set apart a large plot of
round in front of the Red Crc ss
house for this purpose. A tea , ruse
has been erected, two croquet -:0 Irts
have been made and umbrella tents
and 12 couch hammoelks have been
phred about the playgr. i ii. 1
Very simple, but appropriate exer
cises, were held on the afternoon of
IMay 31st, and Mrs. Van Landingham,
:ommander of the canteen, presented
the playground and Col. Dedman,
commanding officer of the hospital,
accepted it on behalf of the patients
in the hospital. The entire equip
mnt however, is a gift to the Red
Cross service in the hospital and will
be included in the inventory of Red
Mr. Thurber, hospital direetor, has
been untiring in his efforts to estab
lish such an out of door playground
to entice the men out into the air
and sunshine, giving them passv
sports and every facility for rest as
well as recreation, making this play
ground the center of life for the pa
tients probably six months out of the
year. All the labor involved in the
construction of the playground was
furnishedk. by the hospital employees.*

The ordinance of baptism was ad

church. One man and eight women
were baptized. There arp othrs who
will probably be baptized next Sun.
Everyone in the community is giv
en a cordial welcome to Sunday
sciool Sund y morning -..t 9:45 and
to the evening wcrshei at 8 o'clock.
Especially ought members of the
church to be loy-i and! come to the
suppor't of the:: church. And , wvhile
we are speakin.g of loyalty, let us say
that soon wi are to begin a new Bap.
tist church in our villtge and we
need the support of every Baptist in
the village. We know that the Meth
odists are anticipating building a
church of their own and we have no
right to ask a single Methodist for
a single cent to build . a . Baptist
church, when they are to have a
struggle of their own. Likewise we
feel that Christian etiquette should
forbid the. Methodist church insisting
on the members of the Baptist church
building their house for them until
we have finished our own. The wri
ter feels very strongly that each
tub should stand on its own bottom
at this time. He begs the members
of the Methodist church and all who
are inclined to worship with the
Methodist body to contribute sacri
ficially and ouickly to the erection of
a Methodist church. He also begs
for the same loyal, facrificial contri
bution of' the Baptists and those in
lined to worship at the Baptist
church to the erection of the Baptist
h2rch. If all concerned will deal
fairly and in a fine Christian spirit
there is no reason why both churches
hould not receive all that they need
for their houses of worship. We are
opposed to an unscrupulous breaki iw
of the laws of Christian etiquette.
We are simply asking for loyalty!
where loyalty is due. Be true breth..
ren to your own institutions. If you
are a Methodist be loyal to your
church. If you are a Baptist give
your church your best support.

Honorable C. A. Robinson, Mayor, I
Winnsboro, S. C.
We hand you herewith report on
our examination of the Clerk's -ec
ords for the year ending April '30.
We find that all cash has been de
posited in thne banks and that pay
ments have been vouched for by
members of Council.
COMMENTS AND SUGGESTIONS.
The attached schedule shows the
certificates of deposit ield for tihe
redemption of bonds.
No continuous record has been
kept to enable us to certify that
these amounts are carrect and we
would suggest that such a record be
kept hereafter. In this connection
we would' recommend also that the
authorities require that this fund be
increased 'each year by an amount
sufficient ta redeem all bonds at ma
Our information shows that you (
have ou'3tanding the following
Electric lighting 4 1-2 per -
Sewerage 5 per cent...... 80,000.00
School, 5 per cent......... 7,000.00
We are not in possessi-m of the
data to determine jusit what yearly
addition to the Sinking Fund will be
necessary to redeem these bonds, but
your attorney- can give you this il.
There is no way to determine the
amount of fines thart have been as
sessed. We have no reason to doubt
that all fines have been collected and
accounted for, but the method of
handling is very loose and we would
suggest that all fines assessed be
recorded by the Mayor and that the
Clerk have access to the record.
The amount recorded as salaries
represents the salaries paid the May
or and the Clerk.
These salaries, we understand, are
$400.00 per year for each office, al
though only $700.00 was paid during
the current year. We have not gone
back beyond this year, b it unless
there had been an overpayment in
former years the Mayor was due
$200.00 on his salary on April 30,
1921. On January 1, 1921, he was
paid $100.00 of this amount and that r
balance appears to be still due him. r
The only liabilit~y of which we find
record, aside from the salary men- t
tionedi consists of one notie for
$500.00 due the Merchants & Plant- r
ers Bank with interest from January ~
We fo'mnd the records accurately a
kept, but. not so complete a- they
s: uld be and would suggest that-the.
work on the present records can be -
lessened and additional records in- tl
stalled jn order to enable the tax- t1
payers to know in more detkail just
what is being done.g
