In fe f it Courier of June 22,
Rev. L 7'.'Bailey has presented 1
sketch tlife and service of Rev.
Philip Mulkey, a 'pioneer in the set
tiement of the territory -ub.e n
known as Fairfield county, and a
principal founder of the Baptist
church throughout the entire upper
section of this -state during the for
mation period of her history between
the years 1750 and 1776.
The special local interest attaching
to this account of the labors of this
Godly man so abundantly blessed in
the earliest settlement period is the
connection of Mulkey wit at least
two such nuclei of civilization in
Fairfield, ds the establishment of the
earliest Baptist churches in Fairfield
on Little River, and that now organ
ized at Monticello. In reality the
church on Little River was the source
of the great historic Fairforest
church of this denomination, whose
influence over the whole state became
such a powerful factor in its growth,
up to the present time. Mr. Bailey s
account of Mulkey sets this fact out
most interestingly and conclusively.
As his sketch informs us, Philip
ulkey, one of the prime instruments
as stated, in the establishment of
religion and planting of civilization
in upper Carolina, was born in North
Carolina in 1732. He was baptized
Christmas day 1750 in Steam's
church, Guilford county (N. C.), and
within a year became ordained as
pastor of Deep River church in the
same county, where he remained
three years.
That disposition' for "moving cn"
which possesses all genuine n.issi -
aries possessed Mr. Mulkey overpow
eringly, and his wh.>le. apostiezt
like that of Paul, was one journey
after another, planting churches ir
place after place. This zeal led hirr
as leader with a dozen of his congre
gation to migrate from Guilford an(
settle upon a location in South Caro
lina that a contemporaneous accoun1
states was at "Little River, off Broat
River," where they incorporated as
church in August of 1710.
Mr. Bailey states frankly his ina
bility to designate the exact localit:
of this obscure settlement, which re
mained, as will be seen but a scarc
two years, and too short a .while t
receive officially a name to designat
it; but to citizens of Fairfield it ob
viously has reference to Little Rive
in Fairfield county, and the peculia
designation given the place wa
doubtless to distinguish between th
curch pAggAhere anda thene e ,
l-ja xtery bo~t'Iefor 77 ful
t r west, called the church of "Lit
tle River off Saluda River."
Although the church increased s
rapily, from 13 to 104 memnber
within two year's, or, perhaps, for tha
very reason, and the pastor considere
his work there accomplished,, at an
Tate, the missionary zeal filled hir
again, and he trekked westwar
across the Broad and settled with hi
whole congreggon of the Little Riv
er settlement in what is nov Un~o
county. Thus he there replanted th
church first formed in Fairfiel a,i
December of 1762. which received th
name of ~airforest church from it
location upon the creek so named,
few miles west of Union courthouse
in the fork formed by Tyger River
Fairforest, thus originally planted b:
Mulkey in Fairfield, became a pro
lific mother of churches, with branch
es, a half-dozen or more, one hundrei
miles apart, a monument to the ze:t
of thie builder in the sen~'ice~ of his
Lord. The significarfee of it is, thai
It but adds one more to the roll of
great things in the state that trace
their origia back to Fairfield.
This, however ,does not include the
irnterest Fairfield has in cornection
with' the labors of Mice i.i his re
ligious work. Under tils siei'nii
ter was formed the organization that
became Congaree church in lower
Richland, which presented to the state
while served by Mulkey such distin
guished Baptist divines as Reese,
Dargan and Furman, under whom
largely the denomination in this state
owes its power for good and great
membership. T' e.,e t so form~er were
baptzed into the church as members
of Fairforest, while Furman came in
to it through the ~church at High
Hills of Santee, which was a branch
of Congaree..
Thus through the ministry of Phil
ip Mulkey it was that Furman Insti
tute became in aftertimes established
as a Baptist training school in Fair
field, which was eventually transe
formed into the Furman University.
But Mr. Mulkey's- connection with
the history of Fairfield has not yet
all been told.
In his journeying from Union down
to Richland county to his church at
Congaree Mr. Mulkey was accustom
ed to break distance midway, resting
