Savage's Plantation

Daniel Savage married in 1736 Mary Wells, their son Daniel, Jr. being born in1739 on Hilton Head: Mary Wells Savage died at their Muddy Creek Plantation home in 1754.  Daniel Savage married in July1754 Jane McKee. The 850 acre plantation between Otterburn and Spanish Wells was still their home in 1783 as recorded by Dr. Mosse. The 1790 census shows Daniel Savage still planting Muddy Creek with the help of twenty slaves.  He apparently died or moved away shortly thereafter, for in 1792 his plantation was sold to William Baynard. Daniel Savage was a member of the Revolutionary War party, the Bloody Legion.
