Toxaway Station

I was curious if anyone knows anything about Toxaway Station, a military outpost of some sort that was located in Pendleton District in the 1790s.

I am not related to any of the folks listed below, but like a lot of other folks, I had relatives who lived near the Toxaway River, and was just curious about the area's history.

The only references I have seen to Toxaway Station are the following entries from the published South Carolina law books:

From:
Acts and resolutions of the General Assembly, of the state of South-Carolina. Passed in Nov. and Dec. 1795
[The entries from this volume are in pounds, shillings, pence; the entries from the last two books are in dollars and cents.]
