The Truth... What is it?

A Caughman Family of South Carolina

The Caughmans are of German extraction. Arriving in Lexington county, S.C. in the 1700's, they settled in the Big Hollow Creek area of Cedar Grove Lutheran Church (see Drafts family) and toward Wise's Ferry on the Saluda River (now under Lake Murray).

The name is widespread in the central area of South Carolina and especially in Lexington County.

My wife's paternal grandmother was a Caughman. A lot of information on this family is in the local history room of the main branch of the Lexington County Public Library.
