Biography

This family and other associated families lived in upstate, SC, in the area close to the Pickens and Greenville County lines called, Dacusville. Dacusville was originally "a trading post on the old [Native American] Road, now SC Hwy 11 (Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway), that ran from Virginia through North and South Carolina into Georgia territory, at what soon came to be called Dacusville... It is said that this was first called "The Trap". This was also a stagecoach stop. History relates there had been a post office in this vicinity since Revolutionary War days which had been operated from more than one location by various people. Archibald Dacus began to operate the post office from his trading post (store) and the place was called "Dacusville" after him."[1]
