HILLHOUSE PLANTATION: This pre-Revolutionary War plantation was largely situated on the west bank of Turkey Creek. The home of William Hillhouse was located on the old Charleston Road (later Quinn’s Road) at the present-day intersection of Blanton Road and Highway 322. Some historians have confused Hillhouse with his brother, John. This is also the site of Lacey’s Fort during the Revolution, and the January 1781 encampment of Lord Cornwallis. (Statement by local historian J.L. West of Bullocks Creek, S.C.)

Is there a list of slaves from the plantation?
Wade Fairey says
Not that we are aware of. Have you checked the Federal Slave Census records?
