You're welcome! I actually have a few more notes about the Lawtons:
Here are a few more notes about the Lawtons.

(Scroll down to the part that begins with Grimkie)

Joseph Maner Lawton was the owner of Cypress Vale Plantation. It is located nr. Scotia, in Hampton County and the main crop was cotton. He also owned Grimkie Plantation and Lacklawn Plantation.

(Scroll down the the part beginning "As was their wont")

A brief entry discusses Joseph A. Lawton, his wife, and their 2600-acre plantation Scull Creek, their 1820 acre-plantation Calibogia, and another plantation of theirs, the 290-acre Baldwin Plantation. Apparently, 156 slaves worked on the Calibogia Plantationwhich was their primary residence. His uncle Rev. Winborn A. Lawton was a frequent guest.

Link to a plat for Palmetto Bluff - a plantation belonging to Winborn Asa Lawton is detailed.
