Bullocks Creek-Settlement

 

First settled area in York County. Only a church, some remnants of buildings and a very large graveyard remain. The graveyard is worth investigation. The most important figure in Bullocks Creek was Dr. Joseph Alexander, the pastor who organized the church and an academy which once existed here.

 

Travelers coming up what is now Hwy 49 would cross on a ferry for Pinckneyville (no longer standing). Pinckneyville was once being considered for the Military school that became West Point.  According to historical in Rock Hill Library archives the school lost by one vote.  Travelers were on their way to Charleston.  Many men from Bullocks Creek enlisted with the Patriots to defend the cause and fought at Kings Mountain. The battle at Kings Mountain has always been considered a turning point in the Revolutionary War.
