Samuel Rosamond of Charleston

My kindred – are the South!

Rosamond Press






I just discovered that my ancestor, Patriot Samuel Rosamond, bought two homes on Bay Street in Charleston in 1786. This makes us one of the Southern Gentry, we making one of the earliest real estate deals as a Free Nation.

It gets better!

Samuel Rosamond was on the State Commission to build canals around the city of Columbia that was designated the State Capital. It was going to be an ideal city where barges carried cotton downstream from the plantations. The State allotted a million dollars to the project which might be one of the largest civic real estate improvements since we became a Democracy.

There were several plantations owned by the Rosamond family. Our cotton ended up in Charleston. Samuel was able to sit on his terrace on the shore and watch the large ships bringing his cotton to one of the greatest cities in the South.
