Thomas Shannon is said to have settled in Fairfield County, SC from Bedford County, Va. prior to the Rev War. He was a captain in the War and was at the Battle of King's Mtn. He also was at the Battle of Mobley Meeting House and participated in engagements in Orangeburg County at Four Holes Swamp. His grandson, David Shannon and wife Sarah Wages moved to the Ft. Jackson land around 1850. It is believed that Charles John Shannon who lived in Kershaw County was also a grandson of Captain Thomas Shannon. Charles John's son, William McCreight Shannon, was killed in the infamous Cash/Shannon Duel. This duel was supposedly the last legal duel fought in SC.
