American Revolutionary War heroines - Frances "Fanny" (Beale) Griffin served as a wagoner and a patriot, even drawing pay. She was born ca 1745/48 in South Carolina and died in 1799 in Greenwood County, South Carolina. Her first husband was James Griffin and her second husband was Charles Astley Cooper.

 

American Revolutionary War heroines - Agnes (Frederick) Norris served as a Patriot. She lived in Edgefield County, South Carolina. Agnes was born ca 1750 in Orangeburg County, South Carolina, and died in 1822 in Edgefield County, South Carolina. Her husband was William Norris.

American Revolutionary War heroines - Harriet Prudence Patterson Hall was born in 1743 in County Antrim, Ireland, and at the age of 12 emigrated to America, first landing in Maryland and later moving to Pennsylvania, and finally to South Carolina.

Prudence married John Hall in 1763 in Charleston, South Carolina; her first child was named Margaret. Prudence went on to have 9 children in all. John joined the Revolutionary War and fought for South Carolina.

Sometime prior to the Revolution they had left Charleston and moved to upper South Carolina and settled in York District near Rock Hill. Here they bought land and built their home on Little Allison Creek. This very place was destined to play an important part in the history of the American Revolution for it was here that a brick store was erected which became the trading post for salt.

Prudence and three other women rode horseback to Charleston during the Revolution when the British had the city besieged. They went under the guise of purchasing medicine and were held up by the British as spies, but were allowed to pass the British ranks. They got their medicine and returned, but not before Prudence had delivered an important message to the American Army, which she carried hidden in her petticoat. She had outwitted them all!

Prudence lived to the ripe old age of 96 and is buried in the Bethel Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Rock Hill, South Carolina.
