  • O'Kelley, Vol.3,
    p.91., note 138, p.498, quotes Davies, Documents of the American Revolution, Vol.XX, p.72; Draper Sumter Papers, 10VV69 and says that Belleville was 2 miles away from Manigault's Ferry. There must have been two Manigault's ferries, since Cornwallis referred to one about 5 miles above Nelson's Ferry.
    p.64. James Postell's raid of Manigault Ferry is described but sounds more like the locale further south.

    There were two old ferries on the Santee river bearing the name of Manigault's. One was located in Orangeburg County northwest of Vance, the one most prominent in the Revolution was present Calhoun County not far below the junction of the Congaree and Wateree.
