Tom Fetters wrote to share this:  "Wide Awake is now in Charleston County, as the original Colleton County which ended at Rantowles Creek, was pushed back to the Edisto River.  Go to the east on the Atlantic Coast Line towards Charleston.  Stop at Rantowles Station which is just west of the creek.  Go south one mile and Wide Awake is on the west bank of the river.  It appears in an 1887 map."  Thanks, Tom!
