David Paul Reuwer, a local attorney, historian and tour guide, is announcing his candidacy for Kershaw County Probate Judge. Reuwer said probate judges must be skilled in the laws and administration of wills, estates, trusts, conservatorship and marriage.

“Serving people with competence and caring; probate demands knowledge and love,” Reuwer said in a press release. “Helping folks, I am dedicated to prompt professional service in matters concerning their elders and heirs, personal injury to children, death, incompetency and insanity.”

He said he would manage the probate court and records office with the experience and legal knowledge he has gained from being a practicing attorney.

“I will help educate the public by speaking about all that the probate court does and why it is important to be prepared. I will serve the people and families of Kershaw County with humility, integrity, kindness and compassion,” Reuwer said.

Reuwer earned a Juris Doctor (law) degree from Pepperdine University and a bachelor of science degree from Towson State University in psychology and political science. He chaired and taught in the paralegal department at Central Carolina Technical College from 1994 to 1998. He is an active member of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, where he serves as lector and Eucharistic minister.

Reuwer’s said his passion is historic preservation. He is president of the American Revolution Association, magazine editor of American Revolution, and plenipotentiary and co-founder of the Southern Campaigns of the American Revolution network.

Reuwer served as an adjunct professor of historic preservation at the College of Charleston, lead investigator of the Eutaw Springs battlefield archaeological survey, and association editor of the online Southern Campaigns of the American Revolution. He is a Southern Campaigns battlefield tour guide and leader of military staff rides for the Army, Air Force, Marines and National Guard. Reuwer is also the co-founder of the Southern Campaigns Revolutionary War Round Table, Corps of Discovery groups, Hobkirk’s Hill Battlefield Archaeology Project, and Congress of AR Round Tables. A speaker and conference presenter, Reuwer said he “motivates people to think and act.”

His preservation “saves” include the Edwin and John Wilkes Booth birthplace/boyhood home in Maryland; astronaut Gus Grissom’s boyhood home in Indiana; Indiana’s third-longest covered bridge; and a Russian Orthodox church in Maryland.

Reuwer enjoys outdoor activities, including running, kayaking, hiking, camping and “battlefielding.” Born and raised in Maryland, he has lived in South Carolina since 1990.

Reuwer said his most significant accomplishment is being the father of three children: Aaron, Anastasia and Lucas.
