The Hampton and Branchville Railroad was chartered in 1891 to accommodate the region’s thriving logging industry. The line originally ran from the town of Hamburg and continued through Hampton into Colleton County and Orangeburg County. The line is currently being used by CSX to transport coal and kraft paper to facilities in Canadys.

Hey y’all. I’m doing research on Miley. My grandma’s maiden name is Miley. The land was a king’s grant in like the 1700s. Now we only own about 200 acres. I’m trying to find out about Miley. Thanks y’all.

I am looking for some information on the Lightsey Brother’s Wood in Miley, SC. My Aunt and cousin are tearing down an old house and have found some things dated back to 1909. The other day they were tearing down some tonge and groove wood planks off of the walls and the Lightsey Brother’s Wood, Miley SC was stamped on the back of the planks. I am just trying to find out about how old the wood could be, how much they are worth, and any information about the wood company itself. We have never heard of the Lightsey Brother’s Wood place in Miley, we would like to know more information if possible. I thank you so much for your time.

I was born and raised in Miley, and I attended Miley Colored School through the 5th grade. My Grandfather is Mr. Cola Terry, he worked on Lightsey Brothers Farm. My uncle is Buster Terry. You might remember him.

I was born in a house in Miley near the tracks. My father worked for the Lightsey Rail Road as a fireman, shoveling coal in the engines.

My grandfather, James Thomas, was the train engineer for Lightsey Brothers in the 1920’s and 30’s. I grew up in Walterboro, and he died when I was little. We children heard many stories of him hauling logs to the mill.

I grew up in Miley along with twin brother, LeRoy. My dad was employed by Lightsey Brothers and my Mother retired as Postmaster in Miley. We went to the two-room school house through the fifth grade. Not much left there now. Mr. Horace Roberts’ house is still occupied. The original train barn burned some years ago. The railroad is no longer running after SCE&G closed their Cannadys generating plant.

I was born and raised in Miley, S.C. I left there in 1955 at the age of 19. I remember the trolley car, “200,” transporting passengers and mail from Hampton to Branchville, S.C. The one-coach trolley car was equipped with a diesel engine. One could ride the entire route for 10 or 15 cents. I used to volunteer and help the coach operator for a free ride. I am now retired and lives in N.Y. I was so happy to ride on that trolley car called “200.”

Reminds me of Shoals Junction in 1976 when I moved home after 16 years.
