I am afraid I am of no help; however, the following may be of interest...

" Tuesday the 6th Day of February 1759. "... The Petition of John Dargon, and the Upper Inhabitants of Wateree River, WaxSaws and Yadkin Settlements was read, Setting forth, That the said John Dargan is now settled at a Convenient Place for a long Ferry in times of high Water Over Santee River where Travellers may cross at any Time when there is no passing at Beard's Ferry; and tho' it be long yet he can Ferry from High-Land to High land with Safety at any Time; And praying that a Law may pass for Establishing a Ferry at the said Place and vesting the same in the said John Dargan &ca. Ordered that the Petition be referred to the Consideration of a Committee and that they do examine the matter thereof and report the same, as it shall appear to them, to the House. And It is referred to Collonel Richardson, Mr. Lynch, Mr. Trapier, Mr. Mazyck, Mr. Moultrie, Mr. Cantey, Mr. John Crawford...."
