Which Colony Would You be From?

Scott Carter

To further elaborate, I’m informed heavily by family history. Some of our Quaker ancestors stayed in Pennsylvania, while others went to North Carolina. Geographically and climate-wise, those are both bountiful areas. Some settled in New Garden North Carolina and were part of the Quakers involved in caring for wounded. That area, now Greensboro, seems like a great place.

I often wonder how my Massachusetts ancestors survived and thrived. So cold.

In terms of South Carolina, if one can tolerate mosquitoes, yellow fever and heat, it is a great place in the 18th century. The Santee River and Pee Dee River basins were where those relatives settled. I am touring some of that this summer.
