The Life and Times of Mary Musgrove

University Press of Florida

This chapter explores Mary's young adulthood and marriage to her first husband, John Musgrove. First, it investigates John's background and illustrates how the young Anglo-Creek man gradually came to be assimilated into English colonial society. In particular, the chapter focuses on the Musgroves' acquisition of land in Colleton County and how they aspired to become planters. It demonstrates that the Musgroves earned their living principally by raising livestock and that they had begun planting rice by 1730. It finally explores the means by which the Musgroves moved south to Yamacraw bluff in 1732 and their reasons for doing so.
