1). The Episcopalians of Edisto were originally connected in worship and discipline with the parish church of John s Island, and had divine service performed for them on Edisto Island at occasional intervals. Being liable to various disappointments in theirexpectations of divine service, they were led to separate from that church. In effecting their separation they built, in 1774, by subscription, a neat and commodious chapel and some time after created a permanent fund for the support of their ministers.The zeal and liberality displayed by them on these occasions, considering the paucity of their numbers, reflects great credit on the parties concerned.
