City Directories and History: The long-term home of the Guy and Gage families of Chester, SC. This home appears to have been constructed in the mid 19th century
and remains architecturally intact except for the addition of its large plate glass windows. The home and farm was owned by the William O. Guy (1854-1934), family in the late 19th century where he raised a large family of ten children. See the census data listed below.
Mrs. Guy was born Martha Catherine Blair, the fourth child of Samuel Blair, of the Bullock’s Creek section of York County, SC, where the Guy’s lived until moving the Chester County presumably to acquire what is known as the Guy-White farm.
Mrs. Harriet Gage Fairey reported to the author, that she was born in this home, while her family resided in Chester County. Her father, George Gage, was a fertilizer salesman and kin to the prominent Gage family members on York Street.
