Henry CATO

From Cynthia, "Know where Henry got the land from Jeremiah Simmons which he later sold to Jesse Hays. <snip> Henry was awarded this land as the result of a lawsuit brought against Hayes, who owed Henry a debt of L500. Henry CATO "of Camden District Lancaster Co" appeared in person at the Camden Court with his lawyer in 1794. Jeremiah "doth not come." Henry's lawyer is Samuel MATHIS. Henry is granted the 300 acres of land and about L6 damages. This is in Judgement Book D Camden Courthouse, p 81-82. There is also a lawyers fee book in the SC Archives which I looked through on a whim, and coincidentally it was Henry's lawyer in this action. This fee book has a page labelled

Charleston SC Baptist Associational Minutes, 1810, p 4. no. 23. Agreed, that this Association are sensibly affected by the death of the Rev. John CATO, who died in the course of the present year, and had long been as a minister of the gospel, a worthy, respectable, and useful member in our immediate connexion. (Note from Cynthia: "I have seen many different dates for the death of Rev. John CATO. I think this settles the question. Rev. John died in 1810, and William CATO who m Sarah Massey sold a large part of his land in 1813. William CATO m Sarah Massey named his first son John CATO. I have to say that it seems most likely to me that William CATO m Sarah Massey is the son, and not the grandson, of John CATO.")

There are 2 Buffalo Creeks running into Lynches Creek; one about a mile below the North Carolina line in Chesterfield County, the other about 8 miles below Flat Creek on the Kershaw side, but the location given in the (Furnam) M. S. of Buffalo Creek meeting house as 10 miles above the main meeting House shows that this was near the North Carolina line and that it might be an early designation of Lane's Creek.. Flat Creek is 35 miles North East of Camden. It is still on the same lot and is known as Flat Creek.
Page 101: Statistics of Lane's Creek Church 1798-1804. Both Churches in Kershaw County now. Year 1798, minister John CATO, messengers to Associations: William SHEPHARD. 24 members.

1803 John CATO Pastor-Richard HOLLY was a member of this church. Charles COOK had a split in his church and left for North Carolina. It seems John CATO who was not a minister, but a good layman, was ordained and took the pastorate. This is what I gained from reading the text of South Carolina Baptists.
William BREWER was also associated with John CATO.
The 2nd Church on Lynches Creek was organized in 1789 by the Rev. Charles COOK who was later removed to Anson Co., NC & the Rev. John CATO was pastor 1793-1794. The Rev. John CATO lived in Lancaster Co. on the Old Camden Road.
