In the summer edition of Carologue, which is the member magazine for the South Carolina Historical Society, there was mention of activities related to the involvement of South Carolina in the American Revolution.  I wrote its editor, Lauren Nivens, to give her the link to my Trezevant family website at <> so that she could read about Robert Farquhar and Peter Trezevant and their Supreme Court lawsuit Chisholm v. Georgia of 1793.  The result of the suit was the eleventh amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1795.  She suggested I write an article about it, which I completed in late August (with much help from Rick Allen).  It was published in the fall 2016 edition of Carologue and can be accessed on the Trezevant family website.  I mention it here because James Peter Trezevant was a grandson of Peter Trezevant.  Many of those who would meet J.P. Trezevant during his time in Texas would have been aware of the importance of his family and the fact that by 1836 the family was quite wealthy.  R.W.T.
