G. and Margaret W. Causey, and died on 22 August 1924. He was a riverboat captain and later operated a mercantile business and was innkeeper of the Kingston Hotel in downtown Conway . He married Julia E. Skipper on 9 May 1894. Julia was born on 5 Sept 1852 near the Little Pee Dee River in the Galivant's Ferry area and died on 22 Nov 1933. Julia ran a shop in downtown Conway where she made and sold hats. It was located approximately in the area where the Main Street Theater stands in 2006. Julia's parents were Abijah Hollingsworth Skipper (1821-1895) and Sarah Caroline Skipper, formerly Smith (1829-1912). Abijah served as sheriff of Horry County from 1868-1876(?) and her grandfather, Joel B.
