What primary documentation do you have that proves that their were Moroccans ,Egyptians, Syrians and Moors[Moors and Moroccans are basically the same thing] in South Carolina in the 15th century[circa 1492]. Especially since the Spanish did not reach Mainland America and start a colony until 1526 consisting of African slaves and Spaniards. Which was abandoned by the way.
