Mr Sellers reports the first Harllee to come to South Carolina was Thomas Harllee with his mother
and sisters. He settled on Little Pee Dee River, engaged in boating and flat making and found it very
profitable; by this means he laid the foundation of the large property which he possessed at his death.
Thomas Harllee when young married a girl of Scotch parentage, named Elizabeth Stuart; her father, David Stuart,
emigrated from Scotland and settled in Richmond County, N. C. He, with his two sons, David and Hardy, fought
through the Revolutionary War under General Marion.
There were born to Thomas Harllee and wife ten children - John, Ann, Elizabeth,
David S., Peter, Robert, Thomas, Harriet, William W. and Lucretia.
