********** ABOUT SIMON *******
compiled by Horace F. Rudisill, Darlington County Historian
Born in Darlington District, son of John and Mary (Ellison) Muldrow He was obviously named
for Revolutionary Patriot Simon Connell of Old Cheraw District, who was the step-father of his
mother, Mary Ellison. Muldrow graduated in 1820 from The College of New Jersey (now
Princeton) and was admitted to the bar Jan. 10, 18231.
He practiced in Darlington, and for a while was the junior partner of Gov. Stephen D. Miller in
the law firm "Miller & Muldrow". After several years he removed to Claiborne County,
Alabama, and ultimately to Lowndes County, Mississippi, where he lived as a planter.
He was married in Darlington District in 1826 to Louisa Adeline Cannon and they became the
parents of three sons and four daughters. Mr. Muldrow died in Oktibbeha County, Mississippi.
