Notes

Planter: owner of Carolina Brandon, site of the Battle of the Cane Brake on James Harrison's plantation. Officer in Quartermaster Corps. Confederate Army; collected live stock and grain to send to troops. Owned over 200 slaves. Worked in gubernatorial campaign of 1876 to elect Wade Hampton III.

Built a mansion down and across from James Harrison home. According to a manuscript in the Greenville Co. Library that describes the house, it required four years to complete. Timbers and stone were procured on the property, and bricks were made by slaves. It was built on a hill overlooking the Reedy River a mile to the west, with porches on three sides and center halls on both floors that were 50 feet long. The interior ceilings were elaborately decorated with molded plaster cornices and circular medallions of acanthus leaves. Just at its completion, the house was destroyed totally by fire, except for the heavy foundation walls. It was rebuilt on the same site exactly as before, which required another four years. Furniture was imported from England, and lovely crystal chandeliers were hung in the rooms. A separate two room kitchen with attic, brick floor, and wide chimney was constructed 80 feet from the side of the dining room.

John H. did not call his place Carolina Brandon. That name was given it by his descendants. It was a great plantation with the usual mills, gins, store, shop for artisans, and slave quarters.

Among the house servants in 1854, as remembered by John's son William, was George Croft, coachman, wagoner, and recognized head of the household staff. Tildy Croft, his wife, nurse and weaver; Haley and Deuser, carpenters and year men; Chaney, housegirl and maid; Perry and Ike, houseboys and serving men. They lived in quarters near the big house, but field hands lived in separate cabins scattered over the plantation.

After the war, in 1867, John made a five-year contract with 15 of his former slaves. Wages of younger laborers were to increase as their services became more valuable, and all men were to take turns remaining on the plantation on Sundays to care for the stock. Wages were to be paid at the end of the year, with rations supplied meanwhile by Harrison at regular market prices. The hours of labor were sunrise to sunset with suitable interruption for dinner, and all lost time was to be made up or deducted from wages. The freed men and women agreed to perform all services and labor that Harrison or his agen might require on the premises and such as they had been accoustomed to perform. The annual pay scale as designated and agreed to in the contract was $100 each for Abram, Prince, and Joe; $150 for Phoebe and Adam together, $135 for George, $65 for Alex, $45 each for Carry and Jack, $25 each for Margaret and Julia, $15 for Wash, $10 for Lucy, and $5 for Dick. (This contract is among the Harrison Family Papers at the University of South Carolina)

The canes no longer exist, and the Cripple Creek and Reedy River bottoms now are covered with trees. The house was purchased in the 1920's by John's granddaughter, Mrs. Blanche Harrison McPherson of Greenville, and was used by her as a summer home until it burned in 1954. Overgrowth now covers the site of the ruins.. [S14] [S14]
