HISTORY
Excerpts from History of Greenville Nov 1996 Dede MacDonald
"About the year 1750, the piedmont section of South Carolina began to receive its first permanent settlers. These did not come from the coast, however, but principally from Virginia, Pennsylvania and western New York, moving down the valleys of the Alleghanies, bringing their families and all their portable property with them. They were of the crude pioneer type, having little wealth and education, and living in close touch with nature. Every family supplied itself as best it could from the soil and forests." So begins this excerpt from the History of Greenville, which is of interest to researchers for the entire state.
