1). Elias Horry IV inherited a fortune from his father in plan tations and other properties and his interest in Bull s Isl and came from his second wife, Mary Shubrick. he kept recor ds of his family history in his father s Bible and erecte d monuments to the family s memory. He studied law in the o ffice of General C.C. Pinckney and was admitted to the ba r in 1773. He was Intendent of the City of Charleston fro m 1815 to 1817. Member and president of the Board of Truste es of the College of Charleston, President of the St. Cecil ia Society, Member of the Board of Trustees of the Medica l College as well as being active in many other religious a nd philanthropic organizations. He was the second presiden t of the South Carolina Canal and Railroad Company.
2). Of my mother  s two sisters, the elder, Mary, did not marr y till middle age, but spent her youth & early womanhood a t home. She had a large share of the beauty, which distingu ished the family & was quiet & amiable with less of vivacit y & imagination than either of her sisters, but of a practi cal matter of fact disposition, & very attentive to her dev otional duties. She was addressed by Mr. Elias Horry, a wid ower with a son & two daughters. I remember his formal visi ts to Belvedere in his handsome coach with outriders, his s tately walk upstairs with his gold headed cane, & his punct uality of arrival & departure. In due time, & after the com pletion of regular approaches, he carried his point, was ac cepted, & married, & took her to his home in the ancestra l Mansion, the solid substantial rough cast house at the corner of Meeting & Tradd Sts, Char leston, where she spent the rest of her days, surviving him , & two of her children, a son & daughter, t v leaving a da ughter & three sons. She was a brave woman, & in the days o f Nullification shewed her readiness to meet danger in th e spirit of her forefathers. She mingled little in society , but lived for & among her children, to whose welfare sh e gave herself up with entire self sacrifice, &, though no t always with the dearest perception of what would be for t heir highest good, yet with a sincere desire for the promot ion of their best interests in this world& in the next. Sh e died in the midst of them, justly lamented by the few wh o knew her intimately, & highly respected in the communit y at large.
