Classification: Query
Surnames: Muse, Seale
Charles Bristow Seale and his wife, Lydia Muse, had a planation on Deep River in Cumberland County, North Carolina.

They owned 300 acres near James Muse Sr.'s plantation. Charles Seale received 150 additional acres that he sold to James Muse Jr.. Later on, Charles Seale received an additional 150 acres from the colony of North Carolina.

In the Fall of 1770, Charles Seale purchased a 150 acre farm along Sawney's Creek on the Wateree River in South Carolina, adjoining the plantations of John Morrison and Thomas Muse.

On May 8th of 1781, Major General Nathanael Greene moved his Patriots to the lower side of Sawney's Creek, a place laced with pine and Oak trees and was followed by the Lord Rawdon, who was met by Lieutenant Colonel William Washington's Dragoons, resulting in Lord Rawdon retreating to Camden.

Charles Seale left South Carolina between 1783 and 1784 to join his kin in Wilkes County, Georgia. This relocation was short lived as he returned to South Carolina in November of 1785 after selling the 250 acres he owned in Wilkes County, Georgia.

Upon returning to South Carolina, Charles Seale purchased a farm in Fairfield District and where some of his children also purchased farms nearby.

Upon James Muse Sr.'s passing, Lydia Seale was given a slave named Benjamin. Sophia Pope Muse deeded two additional slaves to Lydia Seale.

I would like to learn more about the plantation Charles Seale had in North Carolina. What crops were grown? Who lived on this plantation? What became of the house and grounds?
