- Location East bank of the Ashley River, Dorchester County
- "There are on this place the remains of two residences. One at the spot marked on the old plats as Thomas Waring's residence was evidently a brick house of fair size. The other at a spot also marked on the old plats as 'Steads settlement,' and apparently on the part acquired from William Stead is too broken and dispersed to tell what sort of 'settlement' it was. The old bricks have been removed and only a few sattered broken bricks remain. The old plats give the name as 'Corn Hill'" (Walker, 1941, Reference 45).
