Bethea, second son of James Bethea, married Miss Sallie Manning, daughter of Woodward Manning.

Bethea, son of James Bethea, married the first time Mary Rogers, daughter of Timothy Rogers.
Bethea Jr., married the first time a Miss Spinx of Georgia, and had three sons and one daughter Floy.
Most of the well-to-do citizens generally were subscribers to some daily newspaper which contained the principal war news. What education I have, I received mainly at Hofwyl Academy and Wofford College, after which I taught school for several years. She was a daughter of Thomas Harlee, who lived at Harleesville, from whom it took it's name. Bethea, the second son of Parker Bethea, married a Miss Woolvin of Duplin County, North Carolina. Attention is called to the fact that information contained in these pages has not been brought up to date since 1916, except in the case of the writer's immediate family. Bethea, son of Levi Bethea, married a Miss Campbell, daughter of Edward Campbell, on East side of Little Pee Dee River near Kentyre Church. He first moved to North Carolina; then after a few years he went to Alabama, where he now lives.
Bethea, married a Miss Manning, a daughter of Houston Manning of the Little Rock community.
He located in the town of Dillon, South Carolina, first as a Railroad agent and Telegraph Operator, when Dillon was a mere Station. Bethea, Sr., by his second wife, Elizabeth Bass, married Nannie Bethea, daughter of Evander R. Bethea, entered the Confederate Army at the beginning of the struggle and served through the whole War. He married the second time, Jessie Crawford, and has two children living, Philip and Catherine. He is a Physician by profession and holds a Chair in the Tulane University at New Orleans, La. In January 1880, I came to Marion Courthouse and became County Auditor and Clerk of Board of County Commissioners,which office I held for ten years. He settled on the West side of Little Reedy Creek, between Catfish Church and Cross Roads at John C. Bethea, married the first time Miss Mary Bethea, a daughter of Tristram Bethea of Floral College community in North Carolina. He married the second time a sister of his first wife, Mary Ann, who at the time of her marriage was a widow Thomas.
After his graduation he taught school a while; then went into the insurance business which he is now following. He is a man of eminent man in his profession and has written a book on Pharmacy that has been adopted by the chief medical institutions in the United States.
The post office at Reedy Creek was kept by Squire Sam Bethea and on mail days, there was always a throng of the gentry of the neighborhood to get their mail and learn what was happening at the front. After the War he became personal Secretary to the American Minister to Rumania, Bulgaria and Sorbia and lived for some time in Bucharest, Rumania. His second wife was Sarah Ann Davis of lower Marion, in the neighborhood of Port's Ferry on Great Pee Dee River. Philip Bethea first settled on the Mars Bluff and Little Rock road near the Catfish crossing.
By good management and the excellent assistance of his wife, he accumulated a large property in lands and Negroes.
He has several children all boys, namely, Curtis, Eugene, Edward, Theodore, and Oscar (1916). He like the others possesses great ability and in all probability will rise high in his profession.
Eugene is at present attending the University of South Carolina in Columbia, South Carolina. She was extremely kind and hospitable, a good neighbor and much liked by all in the community.

He was educated for a lawyer, having received his degree from the Lebanon Law School of Tennessee. I have tried to be a law-abiding citizen and I believe I have made this endeavor a success.
The winner admitted that Eugene was the best in the class and was entitled to the first place.
Parker Bethea settled and lived from the time of his marriage to his death at the Cross Roads on Catfish Bay quite near the Marlborough Line where the Causeway and the Bennettsville and the Marion roads crossed. In recent years old Marion District, or County, was cut up, the west side of Great Pee Dee River going to make Florence County; and later still the upper part was made into Dillon County. His daughters were Sarah, Margaret, Harriett, Flora J., Louisa, Lucinda, Charlotte, and Cattie.
He settled in what was called the Free State near Centerville School house on Little Reedy Creek. He married the second time Miss Kate Jones of Nichols, South Carolina, daughter of Thomas Jones. His present work (1916) is the Little Rock, South Carolina station with Dothan Church thrown in. He had talents as an orator but his religion was rather sensational and showed a tendency towards fanaticism. Her father was a Presbyterian minister of the old school and consequently she fully endorses the tenets of that Church, living accordingly. Gabriella A, the mother of Florence A., was a daughter of Lewis Strobel, whose wife was Sarah Owens, whose mother was Pattie Bethea, daughter of John Bethea 3rd.
Tristram Bethea, the other son, at the same time settled on the Cape Fear River in North Carolina, not far from Fayetteville. John Bethea 3rd., was a soldier and a patriot during the Revolution and assisted in establishing the Independence of the United States of America. Owens and moved to Charleston County, (now Berkely County) and settled near the present village of St. In his day and time the Methodists as a religious Society were more emotional in their worship, were stricter in their discipline, and on the whole were very different from what they are today. Her husband was brought up a Methodist, but in his younger days was not at all religious, nor inclined to be. He volunteered early in the Civil War and served throughout the duration of the war in Capt. Thomas in his History of Marlborough County tells all about the McLeod family so I will not repeat it here, also Mr. He was for some time Clerk of Court and afterwards became assistant Postmaster in that city. In writing this genealogy our object will be as early as we can, to at least record whom the females married. He settled on the East side of Buck Swamp, opposite to the town of Latta, South Carolina, and his homestead fell to his son George J. He took great interest in public affairs and filled at times some civil Offices satisfactorily. It took some time for her religious teachings and Christian example to seep into his character, there, to find lodgement and become permanently fixed, but it finally did it's work and he is now a member of her church, and a very useful one. With such a gathering, there was always some fun going on either in the telling of jokes on one another, or playing some prank. He took a large interest in public affairs, kept up with the current events, and looked after the States' interest. The writer is her son, and knows that what is said by two above-mentioned writer's as to her virtues is no exaggeration. The Schoolmaster of the community, one day, made a geographical assertion in the presence of the old Captain, which was incorrect. As a Doctor of Medicine he was exempt from military service, but he got into it in this way: during the War between the States, a great many men living on or near Maple Swamp in what is now Dillon County, refused to enlist for military service.
She was undoubtedly the best of women and nothing that I could say in praise of her various virtues would be in the least an exaggeration. Lucretia first married Aaron Neckins, brother of Enoch, had no children, She married a second time, Wesley Stackhouse. He greatly enjoyed theological discussions particularly if the contestants were Methodists and Baptists.
These, together with a number of deserters from the regular army, banded together and lived in the Swamps and other out-of-the-way places in lower Marlborough. Eloise has a position with the Raleigh & Charleston Railroad, a branch of the Seaboard Air Line, as Auditor. A daughter was born to them named Florence Amanda who married Philip Yancey Bethea in City of Charleston, South Carolina, Nov. He was an ardent Methodist and took great interest in the affairs of the Church, although he did not exactly live in strict accordance with the rules. At night, and some time during the day, they would make raids on the homes of the well-to-do citizens and would carry off provisions of various kinds, stock and raise the devil in general.
Clair, a school- teacher, who taught at Hofwyl School, just after the War between the States. Its politics was strictly abolitional, and consequently was one of the main organs of the Republican party, black Republicans they were called.
Everyone loved her; the poor especially were loud in their praises of good deeds done by her. His Chief Lieutenant in Church work, and is remembered by a great many now living, was David Ellen.
Strange to say, several of his children joined the Baptist Church, withdrawing from the Methodist Church.
After her husband died she returned to South Carolina and lived with her father for a while.
She was a Methodist of the old school and literally conformed to the discipline of the Church. The teacher afterward had great respect for the Captain's geographical knowledge and was very cautious not to get into another hole. Their acts became so outrageous that the old men and boys mustered into companies to run them down.
She is regarded as an expert in her line and seems to be well thought of at headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia.
He would often be called on to pray during church services, especially at revival meetings. His sons are William Thaddeus, Samuel Stoll, David Ashby, Swinton Legare, and Andrew Pearch. He is the oldest man that has ever been known in the Bethea family according to records and traditions. Bethea and the writer were his best men at the wedding being mere lads, we led the bride and groom into the parlour, where the ceremony was performed. The writer of this brief sketch is her husband and he ought to know her more thoroughly than any one else. Her parents are very proud of her, not only on account of her advancement in railway matters, rising to an official position, but for her unselfish devotion to her parents and family. In these prayers he would use high- sounding words, coining the most of them to suit his fancy, and using some not at all appropriate to the sentiment.

He is not writing this for publication but for the benefit of his immediate family, therefore, he will be free and candid in speaking of his wife. On these occasions he would become very personal, using the names of such persons in the neighborhood as specially needed prayer. The Home Guard was organized mainly as a protection against the deserters, who robbed and pillaged in the upper part of the county now Dillon.
Through the bad management on the part of our leaders, the deserters being apprised of the attack were prepared when our men closed in on them. My father in his early married life was not at all religiously inclined and did not take any part, not even by his presence in the family devotions, but I suppose her good Christian character and her consistent life had it's good influence and after some years standing aloof, he finally yielded to her good influence and became her partner in religious worship. If there is anything that can be said to the credit of her husband, it is due to her good influence. Edith Johnson, the second daughter, married Walter Benton McCall and lives in the town of Marion, South Carolina. They settled on West side of Big Reedy Creek, near the home of old man James Bethea on the Little Rock and Mars Bluff Road. He drifted into the community just after the surrender and was employed by the trustees of Hofwyl to take charge of the the school. In order to do this several of the crowd conspired together secretly to discuss what to do.
The result of their deliberations was to get the schoolmaster, who at that time was Harris Covington, well known now by a great many as a man of brilliant intellect and superior talents, to write an article for Brownlow's paper for publication, which would stop Old Man John R.
Her mother was a most superior woman, and her daughter shows the training of an exceptional mother.
What he did not know he pretended to know and on this account he was constant by getting into difficulties.
Their son graduated this year from Presbyterian College at Clinton, South Carolina, with high honors and is Assistant to the Commandant and Professor of Mathematics at Nassanutten Academy, Woodstock, Virginia.
During the War between the States he was the agent of the Confederate Government to collect the Tax in Kind.
In a short time, Covington prepared an article, which was approved by the conspirators and sent to Brownlow.
Bethea settled on Catfish, about two miles northwest of his father on the road leading from Berry's Cross Roads to Catfish Church.
The last years of his life he devoted to gathering materials for a History of Marion County.
Florence Strobel Bethea (1930) is a graduate of Winthrop College of Rockhill, South Carolina, and a Post-Graduate of Pratt Institute of Brooklyn, New York. He died just at the close of the War between the States and she returned to South Carolina to her father. He was a gifted conversationalist and told a great many reminiscences, in which he was chief actor, or hero. It is quite a large volume and contains valuable information about the first settlements, the formation of the county, and genealogies of most of the families in old Marion County, east of the Great Pee Dee River.
He said his native state was Kentucky, but this is very doubtful for he really lacked common geographical knowledge of that commonwealth, such as rivers, mountains, etc. The book has a large circulation in every part of the County and is regarded as good authority for the events recorded. It was of considerable length and written in a style that no one but Covington could produce. He had the manners of a Chesterfield and there is no question about his knowledge of polite Society. The conspirators were on the alert for the expected mail and on that day were on hand at the post office to watch old man John R., get his mail. The mail was distributed as usual and they easily perceived that the Brownlow paper was handed to him. He hated meanness and if anyone was unkind he had the backbone to tell him what he thought of them. He has served several terms in the Legislature and has a son, who is now (1916) serving his second term. Sellers is a well educated man and an great reader; consequently he is entertaining in conversation, and his company is enjoyable.
Another time the deserters met old man Maleolin Clark on the public road near Buck Swamp Bridge and killed him.
The conspirators were silently watching for they knew that it would not be long before the old man would explode.
He would get on an occasional drunk, was a great gambler at times and, one time, even joined the Radical party and chummed with the Negroes. Many people in Dillon County on account of their money tried to make them respectable by their attentions, but very few of the self- respecting citizens recognized them. These men ought to be handed down in the annals of our country as unworthy of recognition by good citizens. The exhibitions there were grand occasions and he possessed the knack of showing off what his school was doing, which impressed the patrons in a high degree. He pretended to teach Greek but his knowledge of this language did not extend far beyond the alphabet. Some fled the State and went West; others appealed to the garrisons which began to arrive in the different towns.
They represented to the officers of the garrisons that certain parties were going to hang, or shoot them, because they were Union men and opposed to the War. The names of the good citizens, who had been the most active against them, were handed to the officers of the garrisons and they proceeded to make arrests. My father would hardly ever refuse to let me go for he knew we would bring back fish, and he certainly loved to eat them. Covington was at the School house and missed it all, but they soon sent for him and told what had happened.
Bethea, Knox Clark, Phil Meekins and a number of others kept out of the way to avoid arrest.
In politics he was always on the right side and he was generally posted on the issues of the day. Bethea, finally decided that it would be more satisfactory and safer to leave, so he and his family moved to Mississippi. Bethea had a sister who married a Colonel Bridges, who in the late fifties moved to Tennessee.
Arthur Jackson, became afraid to continue in this country, notwithstanding Peace was made and the garrisons were here, so he went West. His family saw the obituary in Brownlow's paper and thinking the Bethea family were Black Republicans, they united with that party and fought on Union side in civil war. This was not because he could not write, for he wrote a fair hand but because he did not wish to bother with it. She was the favorite of her father, and nothing was spared by him to make her an accomplished woman for that day and time.
She has two daughters, Mary Belle the older married Charlie Bethea, son of William Ellis Bethea.
