There was a group of folks called The Clayton Total Abstinence Society of Georgia.
Pages 119-121:
The Spartanburg Village Temperance Society was organized in 1830
"Among the proceedings of this society, it was set forth that the only object of temperance societies was to improve and direct public opinion, by disseminating such information as will exhibit strongly the great evils flowing from the use of intoxicating drinks, and resolutions were passed earnestly recommending to the district societies that they abstain entirely from all interference with the district police."
