      Quote from Sellers' book (above) re: Perritt

      "Pbrritt. — Another numerous family of the county is the
      Perritt family. Of the old Perritts, there were four brothers
      known to the writer, viz: David, Joseph, Jesse and John.
      David only has left posterity; he married a Miss Smith, a
      sister of old Mr. Hugh Smith, and he in turn married a sister
      of David Perritt (this latter is according to information, may
      be wrong). The old man Perritt raised a family, mostly sons,
      David B., Needham, William, Bennett, Jesse, John E. and
      Asa, and one daughter, if no more. David B. Perritt married
      Miss Martha Edwards, daughter of the late Rev. David Ed-
      wards, and by her had several children, sons and daughters;
      and they in turn have perpetuated the name and connections
      to a second and, perhaps, third generation, and of whom the
      writer knows nothing. Needham Perritt married a Miss
      Moody, sister of the late Joshua W. Moody, a man highly
      esteemed for his many good qualities and noble traits of char-
      acter. Needham Perritt is dead ; he left a considerable family,
      sons and daughters, and they (the children) have become
      fathers and mothers, and extending down to another genera-
      tion or more. William Perritt married a Miss Carmichael,
      daughter of the late Dugald C. Carmichael, of Buck Swamp

      *PhiUp B. Rogers has since married to a lady in North Carolina.

      184 . A HISTORY OF MARION COUNTY.

      and Maiden Down; William Perritt is dead, and left a son,
      Morgan, and three daughters, who, it is supposed, are among
      the present inhabitants of the country, unknown to the writer.
      Bennett Perritt married a Miss Powers, sister of our esteemed
      fellow-citizen, Mitchell Powers; he raised a family, about
      whom the writer knows but little ; one daughter married James
      Sanderson, who has been dead for years ; his widow still lives,
      and. has raised her family respectably, and is said to be doing
      well; she has two sons grown; one daughter married Hugh
      Price, a prosperous citizen in that neighborhood ; he has a fam-
      ily, about whom the writer knows nothing. Another daughter
      married Frank Huggins ; he and she have both left the country,
      and their whereabouts unknown. If Bennett Perritt had any
      sons, it is unknown to the writer. Jesse Perritt, another son
      of old David, the writer has not been able to get anything con-
      cerning him ; whom he married and whether he had any family
      or not, is unasoertainable ; it is said that he is dead. Another
      son of old David Perritt is our very worthy fellow-citizen,
      John E. Perritt ; he married, first, a Miss Campbell, a' daughter
      of the late Wm. S. Campbell, and raised a large and respectable
      family, mostly daughters, and two sons, A. J. A. Perritt and
      Arvjngton Perritt. A. J. A. Perritt moved to Darlington
      County some years ago, and since he has been there has held
      several positions of honor and trust, to wit : County Superin-
      tendent of Education, Representative in the State Legislature
      and a member of the State Constitutional Convention, all of
      which positions he has filled with credit to himself and satis-
      tory to his constituents ; he married a daughter of the late Rev.
      John W. Murray, of the South Carolina Conference of the
      Methodist Church, South. Arvington Perritt left the county
      a single man and went to Texas ; nothing further is known of
      him. Of John E. Perritt's daughters, one married our excel-
      lent fellow-citizen, Jerry Lambert; another married W. C.
      Bracy, of Dillon ; another married a Mr. Keith ; another mar-
      ried a Mr. Smith, below Marion, think a son of Reddin W.
      Smith. I think there is another one or two daughters, whether
      married or not, is not known. Asa Perritt, the youngest son
      of old David, was a Lieutenant in Captain S. A. Durham's
      company in the late war; he married a daughter of the late



      A HISTORY OP MARION COUNTY. 185

      ?Rev. David Edwards, and removed West not long after the
      war ; nothing further is known of him. Of the three brothers
      of old David Perritt, Joseph never married; he has been dead
      many years. Jesse married Mary Dew, daughter of old Chris-
      topher Dew ; they had no children ; she died, and he married a
      second wife, the widow of Elias Townsend; she had been the
      widow of Alfred Kirven, and was originally Elizabeth Tart,
      daughter of old Enos Tart, a notable man in his day, and of
      whom something may be said hereinafter ; by her he had no
      child or children ; both have been dead for some years. John
      Perritt, the youngest brother of old David Perritt, died in
      1840 or 1841, a young single man, from the bite of a rattle-
      snake ; he was with a surveying party about the Marlborough
      line, and in toward the Great Pee Dee River, when the snake
      bit him; there was no house near them and no doctor near;
      he was carried two miles to the nearest house and a doctor was
      finally procured, but too late; he died that same night; a
      young man of fine character and good habits, and was spoken
      well of by all who knew him. Thus it seems that the very
      large family of Perritts and their many connections of the
      present day, and now in the county, sprang from old David
      Perritt, on or near the Ten Mile Bay; he was an energetic
      and persevering man, exceedingly frugal and thoughtful;
      would not be in debt, paid as he went, and made a good prop-
      erty by saving it; was a good and law-abiding citizen; he lost
      his wife in his old age; married some one, name not remem-
      bered, and left her a widow ; I think she drew a pension after
      his death for his services in the War of 1812 — I think he drew
      it in his lifetime. Few men anywhere have a larger connection
      than he has from himself. They and the Perritt connections
      are numerous, and are an honest, well-meaning people ; ambi-
      tious only to live honestly and to let others live, and are primi-
      tive in their modes of life. "
