the youngest of eight children, all of

Elizabeth Bamberg, sister to former
State Treasurer Isaac Bamberg, and
the late Gen. Francis Marton Bam
berg of Bamberg, who died ahortly
after his birth. His father, Wilkes
Sawyer, then moved tho family to the
town of Orangeburg in 1880 in order

yer, his father, served the State

ed in farming until his death in 1888.

In 1906, a year after tho legislature
passed the corporation license act, it
was necessary for tne comptroller
general to have, more help in order to
carry out the law, and Mr. Sawyer
was appointed by Comptroller Gen

clerk. He was afterwards made aud
iting clerk, and in 1910 was appointed
by the comptroller general to the
position of chief clerk, which place he
held up to the- time of his appoint
ment by Governor Manning. Having

the county auditors and treasurers.
