S. C. Cotton Museum

My mother visited the South Carolina Cotton Museum in Bishopsville, SC today, and discovered something interesting. It’s located in the livery stable that my grandfather operated back at the turn of the twentieth century.

I have rather odd ancestry – odd because of a line of youngest children born to older parents. My great-grandfather, William Harris Parham, fought in the Civil War. His wife’s grandfather, Tristram Thomas (my g-g-g-grandfather), fought with Francis Marion in the American Revolution – “the Swamp Fox.” So when people talk about their grandparents or great-grandparents being alive, I really envy them.
