The "South Carolina" was a 1301 ton wooden screw steamer built in 1851 by Jabez Williams of
New York for the Atlantic Steam Navigation Co. Her dimensions were 202.5ft x 38ft. and she had a clipper stem, one funnel and three masts, service speed 9 knots. She sailed from Charleston SC for Liverpool but went aground on the Charlestown Bar and had to put in to New York for repairs to her propeller. She eventually sailed for Liverpool and returned to NY on 23.11.1852 with 72 passengers. Her engines were removed in 1853 and she spent the rest of her life as a sailing vessel. Very little seems to be known of her after this date but in 1874 she was owned by J. Alexander of Liverpool. [Posted to the Emigration-Ships Mailing List by Ted Finch - 8 July 1997]

The second pioneer of the Spring
Hill district to pass away within a
few days was Mr. Arthur Moad, se-
nior, who died shortly after 5 o'clock  
yesterday afternoon, his end coming
after a very short and painful illness,  
in his 79th year. Mr. Moad was a nat-  
ive of Shetland Islands, and came to  
this State with his father when a lad
of 15. After visiting various mining
fields they came to Lucknow, and 52  
years ago the subject of this notice  
settled on the land at Spring Hill,  
where, by dint of application, energy
and perseverance, be established him-
self as one of the most prosperous  
farmers and orchardists of the Or-  
ange district. He gave his whole at-
tention to rural pursuits, apart
from which the principal matter
which interested him most was the
advancement of Methodism. For over
50 years he was a church officer and
Sunday School superintendent, and  
in religious circles, as in private life,
he was respected for his probity and
sincerity. A few months ago he re-  
tired and came to live in town, the  
evidences of debility being upon him,
but his last illness was only of a few
days' duration. He leaves a widow,
six years his junior, who, by the
way, is a native of Bathurst, and of
fifteen children born to them eleven
survive. One (Frank) died at the
front, and the other three in infancy.
Those who are left with their mother
to mourn an ideal husband and father
are Arthur (Blayney), William (Mill-
thorpe), Mrs. W. Parker (Blayney),
James (Millthorpe), Mrs. A. Downy
(Maryvale), Robert (Gilgandra), Mrs.  
E. Robards (Orange), Mrs. S. Wear-
ing (Junee), Miss Ada (Orange), Tho-
mas T. (Spring Hill), Raymond (late
A.I.F, Spring Hill), Frank (deceased,
