Pendarvis, Joseph (b. , d. 1694)
Note: Joseph Pendarvis came from an old Cornish family named Pendarves, but it has not been established for certain the exact connection.

He joined the "Sayle" colony at Barbados and landed, on Mar 17 1670, in what is now Port Royal, South Carolina, a few miles south of the town of Beaufort. He soon moved to the new settlement on the Ashley River that was soon named Charleston. There, on July 22nd, 1672, he was granted lot number 45 in Charles Town and thus is counted as one of the original settlers. In January 1675, he was granted a tract of 180 acres. In 1682 he received town lot 66.

He was elected a member of the Colonial Assembly in 1693 and in that same year was a Justice in the Commission of the Peace.

In his will Joseph Pendarvis left ten slaves, three plantations, four town lots, three houses, numerous farm animals, and household furnishings to his three children and others.

Nightingale, Thomas (b. ABT 1705, d. NOV 1769)
Note: Thomas Nightingale emigrated from Yorkshire to South Carolina as a young man and got his start operating a cow pen on the frontier. He was evidently a shrewd businessman as he was soon prosperous. In 1754 he decided to build Newmarket Race Track in Charleston and the first races were held there in 1760. He was among the first to import thoroughbred stock from England to this country.

One of the most celebrated races of the colonial era was a match race held between Adolphus, bred in Carolina and owned by William Henry Drayton, and Thomas Nightingale's Shadow, bred in England by the Duke of Northumberland. Shadow won the race easily and when Nightingale challenged any horse in South Carolina to take him on, there were no acceptances.

Nightingale also promoted cockfighting.

He bought a pew, number 101, in St. Michael's Church in Charleston when it was still under construction, for fifty pounds.

McDowell, John (b. ABT 1717, d. ABT 1796)
Note: It is difficult to untangle the exact relationships within the McDowell family, because the records are sparse and the family, even more than usual, used the same names over and over and intermarried frequently.

"Hunting" John McDowell, however, was almost certainly the brother of Joseph McDowell and they emigrated to America together early in the middle-third of the 18th century, settling first in the Shenandoah Valley, then just opening to settlement. They were probably first or second cousins of Ephraim McDowell who would later be governor of Kentucky.

"Hunting" John McDowell earned his nickname from his love of hunting, trapping, and exploring the wilderness and would often set off for a month at a time on these expeditions. He was among the first white settlers to explore the Piedmont region of North Carolina and he settled in what is now Burke County in the 1750's at a place on the Cawtaba River that he named Pleasant Gardens. His brother soon followed him to the region and settled at Quaker Meadows.
