||Searching for information about JEREMIAH PARK, who was the
president or dean of a seminary (college) for young ladies that was located
in Columbia in the 1850s. I am told that the school still exists today and
is affectionately called COLA College. JEREMIAH would have been born in the
very late 1700s or the first decade of the 1800s. Our family records show
that his wife's first name was CHARLOTTE, but we do not know her maiden name.
They had a daughter named SUSAN CUTTINO PARK, who married JAMES HILLHOUSE
GAILLARD, our gg-grandfather. Any information about the PARK family would
be tremendously appreciated. (3/14/99 5:31:13

was last known to reside in Richland, SC. She was briefly married to my

|Charles Phillips and his wife Jemima Hardy Phillips are my great-great
grandparents. They moved from Craven/Lenoir Co. NC to Richland and Newberry.
Charles and Jemima Phillips lived in Richland County in 1802 and/or 1806.
In the 1810 census they are listed in Newberry Co. Their sons were born in
either Richland or Newberry: Hardy Phillips, Abraham Phillips (b. 1807),
and Bright Phillips. Charles Phillips and William Phillips are named in the
estate sale records of Thomas Gaines and Delilah Gaines in Newberry (1802-1806),
and one entry indicated that Charles Phillips lived in Newberry at one time,
and in Richland part of the time. In 1810 he was in Newberry with his whole
family. I think that their son Pearson Phillips is named for the general.
