BELCHER / BLAND / FLOYD / THOMPSON (02/05/01)

Searching for ancestors/descendants of Harrison BLAND who married Samantha THOMPSON in Randolph Co in 1840. A nice lady e-mailed me that she had found the above couple. This was in response to my posting of my great grandparents Harrison BLAND and Lydia BELCHER who married in Barbour Co, AL in 1878. Since the BLAND/THOMPSON couple married only a few miles from where my grandfather Sidney Crumley BLAND was born, I think they may be related. Need siblings and parents for the Harrison BLAND who married Samantha. Samantha had a sister, Mardlin who married Hardy FLOYD in the same area. Thanks, Carol.

Othniel WEAVER (my GGGGGF) was born about 1750 in Anson or Bladen, NC and his property on Hill's Creek eventually ended up in present day Chesterfield County, SC (previously Craven, Cheraw and St. David’s districts) before 1784. He removed to the Little River area of Wilkes County, GA by 1787 and was a member of Phillips Mill Baptist Church. He was recorded at various times in Washington, Baldwin and Wilkinson counties before settling in Morgan where he died in 1817. Othniel was a pioneer Baptist preacher in early Georgia history along with his step son-in-law, Jesse MERCER and many other WEAVER relatives. Family tradition holds that his parents were Aaron and Hannah WEAVER, who were killed by Bloody Bill Cunningham in the Massacre at Cloud's Creek in Edgefield County, SC in November 1781. He married first, Sarah HOLLEY the widow of Joel CHIVERS about 1783 in Chesterfield, SC, who had these CHIVERS children: Thomas 1768, Joel 1770, Larkin 1771, Sabrina 1772, Jane 1774 and Jamimah 1776.
