    • "In Memory of Margaret P. Bowie, born in Abbeville S. C. the 13th of July 1777 and died in Dallas County the-th Dec. 1830. She was daughter of Gen. Andrew & Rebecca Pickins, who was Rebecca Calhoun of S.C. From the example of pious parents her mind became early with the principle of Christian religion which she adored, and zealously followed through the remainder of her life. Filled with charity and the most extended benevolence worked her path through Life, she was an affectionate wife a gentle mother and a generous friend. In none were there virtues more conspicuous. Her health had been delicate for more than 20 years and her last sufferings were greatly and she bore all With truly Christian meekness, looking forward to that crown of glory Promised to the humble followers of the Lamb, and died in the full triumph of faith, a husband and only daughter deplore their loss, and raised this final monument to her dear memory."

      "In that community, which had been formed a number of years previously, were the Jacksons (Andrew had been born there), the Calhouns, the Pickens and the Crawfords. From the last named sprung Calhoun's great political rival, William H. Crawford of Georgia. At the Waxhaws, Andrew Pickens met Rebecca Calhoun whom he married."
