Re: Clampitt's from Fairfield Co, SC

In Reply to: Re: Clampitt's from Fairfield Co, SC by Glenda Sandifer of 289

The information on the felony murder indictment came from a book called "Fairfield County Minutes of the County Court, 1785-1799", p. 72-73 by Brent H. Holcomb, ISBN 0-89308-212-0.

We were disappointed to find out that court records on the line item that was of interest to us in that book (a different one than yours) were not available. You may find that to be the case, too.

Here is every syllable that is in the book about Samuel Clampet:
January Term 1793
The State vs Samuel Clampet
Indict. for Murder. A True Bill

The State vs Samuel Clampet
Indt. for Felony. Ordered that Deft. by Liberated on giving good & sufficient Bail for his appearance at Camden Court next April Sessions.

The State vs Saml Clampet
Ordered that Saml. Young Esquire be directed bind over the prosecutor and Evidences in this Case to appear a Camden Court next April Sessions.

The book jumps from the January session to the June session, so I don't know what happens except to say that he is in the 1800 census, so must have been found innocent?
