About 100 persons, including family visitors and Society greeters, saw Jim McGuirt present Elsie Goins a gavel he made for her family from wood of the Lafayette Cedar.

It was the July 20 gathering of descendants of Bonds Conway, builder of the c.1812 home now headquarters of the Kershaw County Historical Society.

Outside and inside the house, family members from across the country reviewed their ancestor’s history. Bonds Conway was the first African American on local record to purchase his freedom from slavery.
