William Blue, first of the name in upper Marion, on north side of Little Pee Dee and Shoe Heel Creek;
he was the original grantee of the lands on which he and his descendants have ever lived. William Blue
had only two sons, Alexander and Daniel, and several daughters. Daniel married a Miss McArthur; Alexander
married Ann Alford.
Of the daughters of old William Blue married Daniel McDuffie; another married a Mr. Campbell. His other
daughters never married, but lived to be very old ladies. The name of Blue, so far as this family is concerned,
is already or about to become extinct in the county.
