Hickory Hill Plantation

According to Mrs. Evelyn McDaniel Frazier Bryan's article, Hickory Hill Plantation was "owned by the Chaplins". 

Although much later this may have been true, the truth is that David Youngblood owned this plantation. David Youngblood who died in 1790 in Colleton left his estate to his wife Lucretia, but if she should die without issue, his lands were to be divided between his brothers Isaac and General Peter Youngblood. She died shortly after her husband and David's Plantation Hickory Hill and the Plantation on the Round O went to Peter and on to his son Peter Edmund Youngblood. 

General Peter's primary home where he died on Sept 10, 1794 was Fair Springs Plantation. It seems very strange the three prominent families of Youngblood, Alison and Lee are not mentioned in her article.
