General Note

  • Mauma, a Partridge family slave, was brought to South Carolina on a slave ship from Africa. She came to Jefferson County with John and Eliza Partridge in the 1830's, and was Frances Weston Partridge's nurse. Frances later married Charles Thomas Carroll.
  • "We buried either in 57 or 58 our faithful old "Mauma" Mollie - her who had nursed nearly all of the children of the family; been a friend as well as faithful servant to my Mother; in whose cabin we had often eaten the homely meal of fried bacon & ash cake and where we always had welcome and sympathy and whom we loved as a second mother. Black of skin but pure of heart, she doubtless stands among the faithful on the right of the King." (Diary of Henry Edward Partridge, written in 1873).
