C. in 1850"William Boswell appears to settle on or near land on the west side of the White Marsh and later on the south side of Soules Swamp, and then later in the Beaverdam and Gum Swamp.In the August 1851 term of the Columbus County Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions, William Boswell is appointed overseer "of the road to 550 yards of the five mile post belonging to said road". In November, 3 months later, the same court removes Boswell as overseer and he is replaced by M. Stanley. It's probable that as a miller, Boswell was too busy grinding corn, wheat, etc., to take care of the road.The November 1850 term of Columbus County Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions noted the following: "on motion considered by the Court that the Public Road leading from Whiteville to Gum Swamp be divided at the 4 mile post from Whiteville & the following hands allotted to the overseer of the part next to Whiteville: William Ward's hands, James Blackman, Amos Ward, Mark Ward, Hardy Duncan, M. C. Millican, Isaiah Nealy, Timothy Dusenbury, David Nealy, Morgan Smith and William Boswell."
