Rev. Simeon Campbell's Diary
Marion County, SC

Rev. Simeon Campbell, a Methodist Minister of Millers Methodist Church East of and near Mullins kept a diary, or journal, of events (births, marriages, deaths) for old Marion County. The original Diary is kept at the Mullins branch of the Marion Public Library and I believe there may be a photocopy available at the main branch. For general research, however, you must work from a typewritten transcription. Excerpts from this wonderful resource are presented here courtesy of the contributors named below.
