[NC] Marriages across the border NC ~SC

I had a conversation with someone today who is from Fayetteville, NC. He said that a lot of folks in Fayettevile used to go across the border in Bishopville, SC to get married. He said he did not know why. I checked the distance and it is about 1 hrour and 52 minutes. I am not sure why someone would go out of state and almost two hours to get married. Maybe their waiting period was different. I'll have to see if I can find some more info.

So, if you are researching in Cumberland Co, NC, check in Lee County, SC to see if your folks got married there.
