In 1821, Dr. Jacques Bishop purchased a tract of land called Singleton’s Crossroads; and by 1828, the village was known as Bishopville. In 1902, Lee County was established and Bishopville flourished as its seat of government and center of activity. Images of America: Bishopville and Lee County is a journey back to a time when Bishopville’s Main Street on a Saturday teemed with a crowd so thick that downtown patrons had to weave their way down the sidewalk, and cotton was a booming business not only in Bishopville but in Lynchburg, Elliott, Lucknow, and Wisacky as well.

About the Author:

Rachael Bowman Bradbury is a descendant of Edmund Stuckey, who settled the Manville section in the late 1700s. Her great-grandfather, Joseph F.

Baskin III is a lifelong Bishopville resident. A retired attorney and municipal judge, Billy is a 1957 graduate of Wofford College. He inherited his love of history from his father, the late Sen. William P. Baskin Jr., and is a frequent volunteer at the South Carolina Cotton Museum.

Title: Author of Lee County history to speak in Bishopville

Author: Staff Writer

Publisher: theitem.com

Date: 10/2/2010
Lifelong Bishopville resident William P. "Billy" Baskin III will be the speaker at the 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 12, meeting of the Lee County Historical Society. He will discuss the book he and Rachael Bowman Bradbury have written about Bishopville and Lee County, "Images of America: Bishopville and Lee County." The book contains more than 200 period photographs and historical information going back to Dr. Jacques Bishop's 1821 purchase of Singleton's Crossroads - later renamed Bishopville.
Previously, Baskin has spoken to the society about his hiking in South Carolina and his unique collection of hiking sticks. He is the son of the late Sen. William P. Baskin Jr. and is a Wofford graduate, a retired attorney and municipal judge and the 2002 recipient of S.C.'s highest civilian award, the Order of the Palmetto.
Co-author Rachael Bradbury is the daughter of Ruth Stevenson Bowman and granddaughter of Martin Stuckey Stevenson of Bishopville. Her great-grandfather was Joe Stuckey, a well-known Lee County historian, whose documents and maps have been shared by his family with the LCHS and archived in the James House.
The Lee County Historical Society serves the people of Lee County without regard to race, religion, or creed. The meetings are open to the general public and begin at 7 p.m. in the conference room of the South Carolina Cotton Museum. There is no admission fee. A federal grant from the Humanities Council, S.C., allows the Lee County Historical Society to invite speakers of special interest to the Lee County community.
