    The Land Grant for 126 acres was signed on 06 Jan 1823 by John L. Wilso n, Governor of South Carolina. John Lyde Wilson was Governor from 1822 t o 1824 (Coleman and McGarity-Williams,
    1988).

    A Land Grant for 322.5 acres was awarded to William Spear (William Spee r, Sr.) on 22 May 1832 by James Hamilton, Jr., Governor of South Caroli na. James Hamilton, Jr. was Governor from 1830 to 1832 (Coleman and McG arity-Williams, 1988).

    Dr. John F. Speer reports that William was granted a total of 1400 acre s of land for his Revolutionary War service. If true, land grants for t he missing 800 acres are yet to be found (Speer to SpeerB, 1986).

    The unsigned letter in the Andrea Collection mentions William Speer, Sr .'s "brother who came over with him from Strabane, Ireland and who land ed with him at Breakwater, Deleware, remained in Pennsylvania and his d escendants are now weathly iron manufactures in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania "

    William, Sr. lived "in the family of General Pickens for the next three y ears except when not in service" (William Speer Jr. letters, 1869 & 18 74). This probably refers to Pickens' Block House which he built as a f ort in Long Cane to protect the settlers from Indian attack. See Ref L X for description of
    the Block House.

    William served under General Pickins at the Siege of Augusta. Samuella B rown (Carroll, 1979) mentions that William served under Colonel Hugh Mc Call at the Siege of Augusta.

    Samuella Brown reports in Carroll, 1979, that William lived in Delaware f rom 1772-1774, moved to Pennesylvania in 1774, and then moved to Charle ston in 1775. In 1776 he moved to Long Cane
    Settletment.

    William Henry Drayton's South Carolina Patriot recruiting party left Ch arleston for the back country in mid summer, 1775. Drayton recruited Pa triot forces throughout the back country, but left his militia and retu rned to Charleston. The Patriot forces gathered at Ninety Six, where t hey (Whigs or Congressional militia) were attacked by Loyalists forces ( Tories or the Kings Men) on 19 Nov 1775. This first battle
    of Ninety Six lasted until a truce was signed on 21 Nov 1775. Drayton, n ow President of the new Provincial Government, dispatched Colonel Richa rd Richardson of the Camden regiment to the protection of the back coun try. Militia volunteers were recruited from all over the state and els ewhere. They rousted the Loyalists from the back country by December 2 3, 1775 and after a severe blizzard that day, the action became known a s the Great Snow Campaign. William Speer, Jr. reported in his letter o f 1869 that his father, William Speer, Sr., had been a part of "Drayton 's or Snowy Camps", apparently a reference to Drayton's Dragroons and t he Great Snow Campaign. He served
    under Col Richardson according to William Speer, Jr (3 Sep 1874).

    After the Fall of Charleston on 12 May 1780, South Carolina was overrun w ith British supporters and William Speer, Sr. fled, with many others, t o North Carolina. He returned to South Carolina after General Greene t ook command of the Revolutionary forces there (Wm Speer, Jr letters, 18 69 & 1874).
    Wm Speer, Jr. reports that after the Battle of Kettle Creek was over, G eneral Andrew Pickens sent Wm Speer, Sr on "an express" to White Hall, S outh Carolina (letter, 1869). White Hall was the residence of General W illiamson
