Rebecca and James Read´s son Dr. William Read (1754-1845) was a deputy surgeon general in the Continental Army, serving under both George Washington and Nathanael Greene. This was one of Read´s several lowcountry plantations; his principal residence was in Charleston. In 1819 Read´s cousin Jacob Bond I´On (1782-1859), planter, army officer, and legislator, hosted President James Monroe and Secretary of State John C. Calhoun at Hobcaw Plantation.
