The first Stafford in the county known to the writer was the late Malcolm Stafford; don't know anything of his parentage or whence he came; he was Scotchman, a man of more than ordinary intelligence, better educated than most men of his day, a Chrisitian gentleman, and a very useful man in his neighborhood; was much missed therein after his death which I think, occurred some time in the fifties. He married Miss. Jeanette Campbell, daughter of old man Duncan Campbell, on north side of Little Pee Dee, in what is now called Carmichael Township; he settled on the south side of the river, near where Stafford's Bridge now stands; he raised a considerable family - three sons, James Harvey, Duncan D. and Neil E. and three daughters, Delitha, Fannie another who married H. B. Floyd.
