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.
