      "Capt. Caldwell's Company, one of three raised in York District, was assembled at Yorkville. It joined the rendezvous of the First and Second Regiments of state militia at Lipsey's Old Fields in Union District on Oct. 1, 1814. From there the regiment marched along the Old State Road by way of Granby (near Columbia in Lexington District), to Charleston, arriving about the seventh of the month."

      "On the Fourth of July (1824) we had a ball in Yorkville. It passed as such things usually do, with its modicum of compliments and cuts--a pleasure to some, a disappointment to others, and it was over; but the next issue of The Pioneer had 'A Description of a Fourth of July Ball' under the new and singular nom de plume of 'The Wasp', and it had a sting, for it surely was 'our ball' depicted. Home actors were certainly drawn, and so well, too, the take-off could hardly be called a burlesque. 'Major Doublehead' was undoubtedly meant for Major Darwin."
