I love this glimpse into SC history and it makes it even more special to know that this article was written by family. Below is an excerpt from a book written by Thomas D. Bailey who was the son of Mary Julia Campbell and Rev. Samuel Bailey. Thomas would have been the nephew of my grandfather Jasper Hampton Campbell who he mentions in the article below. I love the description of what life was like on a southern plantation in the lower richland area.
