|Amicks with roots in the Dutch Fork of South Carolina: This Amick family came from northern Germany in 1752. Conrad Amick arrived, having sailed from Rotterdam, Holland, on the Upton, in Charleston, S.C. in Sept. 1752. No one died on the voyage, and after their arrival a major hurricane hit Charleston on 14 Sept. 1752 and blew the Upton up the Ashley River. On applying for his bounty land grant, Conrad "Emick" presented certification that his fare was paid in full. With a wife and small son (Henry), Conrad qualified for a 150 acre grant in the fork between the Broad and the "Saludy" Rivers [the Dutch Fork]. Henry had 4 sons and 3 daughters. He was raised on Crim's Creek and died while living on Camping Creek.|
