Capt. Wm. Henry Mouzon II had a friendship with Banastre Tarleton from their boyhood school days in France. Yet the British Tarleton burned the Mouzon Plantation House, on August 7, 1780. Ann Mouzon, age eleven, was the first to see the British and alerted the rest of the family. Mouzon was able to escape into Puddin' Swamp of the Black River which was beside his home. Soon after the British Major James Wemyss burned out Patriots and Loyalists alike in a swathe 15 miles wide for 70 miles from the Santee River to Georgetown including the area along the Black River.
