Columbia, S. C.
In reply to yours of February 24th acknowledging information
furnished concerning certain of the Waring family, former students of
the University of South Carolina, and asking if it is possible to secure
further data, I would say that the acknowledgement should really have
been made to Mr. Joseph I. Waring instead of to me as it was he who
furnished you with the information on my reference of your inquiry to
him. Personally, I have no records or information of the family and
we always look to him for such matters. I have to-day seen him and he
tells me that he has given you all the information which he has in hand.
He suggests, however, that you might learn something of Mr. William P.
Waring by writing to Dr. T. P. Waring, of Savannah, who is the grand son
of William R. Waring, and also that you might learn something about the
Columbia Warings from either Mr. Thomas Taylor or his brother, Mr. Ben
Taylor, whose family intermarried with them. I regret very much that
I am unable personally,or through any of my connections here, to secure
further information for you, as I agree with you that the records should
be made as complete as possible.
T trust that the suggestions I have made for further inquiry may
bring you some results.
Very truly yours,
T R Waring
