Now You Know..The
answer to last week's question was John Meade Hawley. His
daughter Elizabeth Hawley Gasque Van Exem was S.C.'s first US
Congresswoman. I have not heard this name in Blythewood
and wonder if there are still Hawleys here. Let me know
if you have any information on this family. Sandra M. and
John B. were first to answer the question and will receive a little
treat from Town Hall. Thanks for reading the newsletter!
Know...There is a "1946-1970
and Forever", special edition Bethel-Hanberry High School
Yearbook. The B-HASS President, Larry Griffin, presented a
copy to Town Hall as well as the Blythewood Historical Society.
It contains the history of the school with its many classes,
as well as a wonderful tribute to Mrs. Anne Eliza Garrick
Hanberry and her staff. You are welcome to come see it at
Town Hall or go by the Historical Society on the corner of McNulty
and Main Street. Blythewood has a rich history with
incredible people, many who are still here contributing to life in
