Does anyone have proof that Nancy Agnes ABLE was the daughter of James and Eleanor Fox ABLE who resided in Abbeville District, SC, or any record that shows the marriage of Nancy Agnes ABLE to William PARNELL? Nancy Agnes ABLE was born 29 Sept. 1802 in Abbeville District and died 12 Feb 1891 at Hopeful, (Talladega Co), AL. She married William PARNELL 11 Dec 1821 in Abbeville District. Their 11 children were born there between 1823 and 1843. William and Nancy and some of their children moved west and were on the 1850 Census in Hall Co, GA, and the 1860 Census in Talladega Co., AL, where they resided until their deaths. Nancy Agnes ABLE's mother, Eleanor Fox ABLE was the daughter of John and Mary FOX, who were in Abbeville District during the Revolutionary War. John was killed in the Revolution in 1781, but Mary, his widow, resided in Abbeville District until her death in 1828. Her will (on file in the Abbeville Co Courthouse), states that her daughter "Elinor" was the wife of James ABLE. James and Eleanor Fox ABLE married shortly before 1800 in Abbeville District and are shown on the 1800 Federal Census as a new family, aged 17-26, and with one female child aged 0-10. The 1810 Census shows 2 female children, aged 0-10, and 2 male children, aged 0-10, in the household of James ABLE, now aged 26-45. One of those daughters was Nancy Agnes, born in 1802, but I have no evidence to connect her by name to James ABLE and Eleanor FOX. I am trying to find clear documentation of Nancy's parentage in order to complete a D.A.R. application on John FOX. Can anyone help me. I will be happy to exchange info with anyone who is working on these families.

I am searching for the location of the ADAMSON home in Abbeville County. It was located near Cedar Springs Church. Lydia ADAMSON was the widow of _______? and was listed in a census of Abbeville in 1810. Her son, Jonathan, and his sister inherited the plantation at her death. She disowned her other daughter, Peggy, leaving her $1 in the will because Peggy's husband, John Argo, opposed slavery. I have been to Abbeville and thought I had found the house only to discover that it was called "__________ foley", built, I believe by a riverboat captain. The house now belongs to someone from California. Directly across from the house is a home which is the oldest structure in Abbeville, the owner reported, and was an old inn in the 1700's. I have located the will of Lydia in a book I found in a store there in Abbeville, but have not been able to determine the location of the house, which I know was still standing the early part of this century. Any help will be appreciated.

I am seeking any information on Florence KNOX (and family), born in Abbeville, SC and died in Monroe, NC, buried in Abbeville, SC. She married John Ester BAILEY, born Winder, GA and died in Greenville, SC. He is also buried in Abbeville. They had one child, James Maxwell BAILEY, born 4 Feb 1904 in Winder, GA and died 7 Sep 1992 in Stuart FL. He is buried down here in Jensen Beach. I don't have birth or death dates for them, or marriage dates. I think they would have been Methodists and would have been born in the 1880's. John Ester worked on the railroad, as conductor of the mail car. My husband remembers visiting them in Monroe, NC. Apparently, the trains ran from Winder, GA, to Abbeville, SC to Monroe, NC and the runs for a shift were guided by these three towns. I think it was the Seaboard RR. Florence was one of 7 girls and one boy. One of the other Knox girls married a Rice. Linda Hudson Bailey : LWHUDSON@aol.comPosted : 11/18/1999

I am looking for information on the parents of my paternal grandmother, Carrie BANKS, who came to Ohio from Anderson, SC with her husband, William GREEN. Carrie died in Erie County, OH on Dec 6, 1942. Her Death Certificate lists her father as Henry BANKS, and her mother's maiden name as Amelia Roebuck. Carrie is listed as being born June 9, 1895, in Abbeville, SC. I am also seeking information on my grandfather William H. GREEN, who also died in Erie County, OH in 1969. His father is listed as Harry GREEN, born March 10, 1870, in Pelton, SC (I don't know the county name). His mother's maiden name was Eliza Scott. Harry's mother's maiden name is listed as Caroline McCowen or Van Cowen, unable to read the writing on the death certificate. Harry's father is listed as Henry GREEN, born in Charleston, SC. I hope someone can help me find some record of these people, as the little information I have is very confusing. The Social Security Form SS5 for William GREEN lists his mother's maiden name as Eliza Burace, and his birthdate as May 28, 1886, in Anderson, SC.

I am searching for the family of Samuel A. Boyd who, I believe, lived in the Abbeville area and traveled to AR before the Civil War. After the war the family moved to Pope County, AR. Interesting because the Boyd neighbors and relatives were the Alewines and Murdochs. We are all related and I knew they all came from the Abbeville area.  Does anyone know the S.A. Boyd I'm referring to? I think the Boyd family is from Ireland. He married Eunice Cleland.

Iím trying to track down an Elias BOYD who was born ca 1805. Iím taking shots in the dark because Iím not sure it was in SC or not. He bought 202.5 acres of land in Troup Co, GA in 1829 and either was already married or then married his first wife and had eight children. If you think you know of a link to him, my website listed below has more in depth information. The reason I chose to ask you was because Iíve seen so many BOYD's come through the Abbeville area and Iím suspect that the roadway passed that way at the time. Any information or pointers you could provide would be most appreciated.

Am interested in any / all info regarding the family (ancestry) of Hugh Boyd (b c. 1813, Abbeville Dist, SC) and his wife Sarah "possibly PORTER" (b c. 1813, Abbeville Dist, SC). They appear in the 1840 Abbeville Dist, SC. census and can be found there until about 1843. By 1846 or so, they had moved to Leake Co, MS. Their marriage was probably in the early 1830ís and the maiden surname of PORTER is "suggested" only because several of their descendants were given that name (ie...son John P. Boyd b c. 1836, Abbeville Dist, SC). Any info at all would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I am a descendent of David BROWN, a Rev War Sgt from Abbeville, SC. His family immigrated to KY in 1800, at least his son Isaac did, and thence to Perry Co. IL (Pinckneyville). My GGfather, William Smith JENNINGS married his gdaughter, Martha Ellen BROWN in 1868. Wm was by all records born in PA in 1846, but searches of most immigration paths and PA itself have not turned up a 4 year old by that name in 1850 censuses. I thought maybe his family had gone to SC since , but anyway, I have reason to believe that David had other sons: a William, Samuel, and maybe a David. I need to investigate any church or local records that might shed some lite on this family. David married Letitia Cruce or Cruse, a name I have seen in the 1790 census. Any Ideas?

I am looking for info on William CALHOUN, a miller who immigrated to SC from Ireland before 1803. He had at least one son, James H C CALHOUN, b. 10 Jun 1803 in SC. James is supposed to be the 2nd cousin of John C. CALHOUN, of SC, acc. to the Goodspeed History of Wright CO, MO. Should I recognize this name? Was he important? Since James was married in Madison Co, AL, I believe the family may have moved before 1823. I have found records of many Wm. CALHOUNs in the Old 96 District; am looking for help trying to find out if one may be him. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The 1850 Census of Choctaw Co, AL shows following approx. birth dates: William (born about 1806, SC and believed to be Abbeville County; died 14 Dec 1877 in Choctaw Co, AL). Martha (born about 1803, SC; died 27 Mar 1888, Bladon Springs, Choctaw Co, AL).Children:

Rev. William CAMPBELL was a Baptist preacher. What church did he attend? Was he ordained/licensed as a minister while living in SC? Was he sent to AL as a church planter/missionary? (By the way, I am now the pastor at one of the small Baptist churches where he was pastor in the 1860's). 
When and where did William and Martha marry? Who were their parents? One family tradition says that William's parents may have immigrated from Scotland. Another says that it was William's grandparents who came from the old country. Would love to know!!

Help! I have searched for years for the names of my 2gr-grandparents COTTEN. Her name was Katherine, maiden name unknown. I don't know his first name or when he died. I can tell you they were both born somewhere in SC, Katherine in 1780. She appears on the censuses of 1830 and 1840 with children. Her two youngest were John (b 1815) and Thomas (b 25 Dec 1820). John married in Abbeville District, about 1842, Mary Ann Elizabeth Burrell, daughter of James Burrell and Miss Darby. When Katherine was 60 something years old she moved to Attala Co, MS. She is listed on the 1850 Attala census with Lucinda Crowder in her household. Katherine was 70 and Lucinda was 69. Both born in SC. In 1860, Katherine was age 80 and living with her son Thomas. Back in SC she lived near people named Boyd, Cobb, Jenkins, Rykard (Richard). Families with these names, plus the Burrells, lived in Attala and Madison Counties in Mississippi.
No connection has been found between my Cottens and the Thomas Cotten who lived in Edgefield District and came to Amite Co, MS about 1812. Records were burned in Attala County in 1869. I have found a few land records and tax records which were recorded elsewhere. After ten years of running through cemeteries and talking with very nice people who did not have a clue, I feel that I am not being objective enough about where else to look. I have all the descendants of John Cotten and Thomas Cotten. Now I need help in finding out who their parents were.

My COUEY ancestors arrived from Europe in SC in 1767 and received land grants at or near Long Canes, which I believe would have been the Abbeville area. A cousin, descended from Joseph COUEY (age 3 in 1767), has completed his family tree back to Joseph and his parents, William and Janet COUEY. I believe I am descended from Samuel, whom I believe was a brother to William. Samuel received 100 acres somewhere in the Long Canes area, so he must have been single at that time in Sept. of 1767. I am looking for any info on Samuel that might show his wife and children. Samuel T. COUEY, my ggg grandfather was born in SC on March 1, 1795...twenty-eight years after the arrival of the COUEY family in SC. So, if Samuel T. was not the older Samuel's son, he may have been his grandson. Thanks for any info that you might be able to provide.

Our family history--by word of mouth only--indicates that our ancestor came to America through Charleston, SC. He came with two brothers. Charles William DUNCAN was born in 1800 according to a family Bible. I am assuming that he came to America as an adult--so I am thinking he got here in the 1820's. Our family history people said that the three brothers stayed in SC or maybe NC for several years. Then at least Charles William who was married to Marianne (Ewen) DUNCAN went to KY. Charles wife Marianne died in childbirth of a son William E. DUNCAN in April of 1836 in Louisville, KY. This William E. Duncan was orphaned when his father died. We do not know where that happened. The next appearance of William E. DUNCAN was in 1867 in Hamilton, Co, IN which is not far from Louisville, KY. I do have an interest in the DUNCAN's of Abbeville, SC because DUNCAN's (other than William E) that were in Hamilton Co, IN came from Abbeville, SC.

Charles EVANS had son, Samuel EVANS b 3-24-1847, d 11-17-1902. Samuel E. had married Sarah Pettigrew Gibert (4th generation Gibert) whose family had received initial land grant from King George III of England, (i.e. "Old 96 District-New Bordeaux Settlement"). Jean Louis Gibert from Languedoc, France and nephew, Pierre Gibert III, was a leader of this area and his father Pierre II was a brother of Rev. Jean Louis G. Rev. Etienne G. who was in England -- all were Hugenots. Pierre G.III married Elizabeth Bienaime "Beraud?" who had 2 brothers, Mathew B. & Jean Beraud who came to the original colony of New Bordeaux with her circa 1772. Gibert family sailed from Plymouth 1-4-1764 to Charleston on the ship "Friendship". Rev. Jean Louis Gibert was the leader of the group of Huguenots md Jeanne "Elizabeth or Ysabeau", daughter of Rev. Pierre Boutiton prior to sailing. Rev. J L Gibert died 8/1773 & buried on his farm, "Badwell", later home of son James Louis Pettrigrew (Petigru); Pierre G. III nephew of Jean Louis G & Etienne G arrived circa 1772 @ 17 years old. Charles Evans was b 10/1820, d 12-6-1893. Charles Evans home still in Abbeville. Have good source on Gibert family preceding arrival in US ? the colonies from France via England, but have no more information on EVANS side of family. Other names associated with EVANS are Nickles, Bryson, Elizabeth. Myth is that Evans (possibly once OíHiven - Irish or McIver ? Scot) were Calvinists from Ireland or Scotland and had moved to Carolina to escape religious persecution. Myth also re: Miltown Castle and County Galway which is in Ireland, [until recently I had thought it in Scotland]. Need help on finding more info on EVANS prior to Charles & prior to immigration to Carolina. Name also associated with Upper Long Cane Creek Pres Ch, etc. in Abbeville.

Trying to locate some information on my father's people. His name was John "Harry" Evans, he was according to information, born in Abbeville, SC in 1896. When he died his death certificate indicated father Joe Evans and mother Mary Vance. In my research into Abbeville Co, plus using the Archives, I came across the name of Frank Vance Sr. That's the 1880 census which indicates Sophie, his wife, and children: Eliza, Allen, Frank, and Mary. Mary was born 1877. This Mary was my grandmother, my father's mother. She married a Joe Evans of the same region. Later in the 1900 census, shows Mary Vance Evans and her children John, Ira, and Jessie living with her brother Allen and Allen's wife Rebecca. In a death certificate, there shows Frank Vance Sr. age 85, died in 1918; and the information was his son Frank Vance Jr. Everything else is a little fuzzy.

John GAW died Abbeville Co by 1789. Widow Violet GAW m John CALHOUN 1790. John had 2 sons, Thomas b 1777 and John b 1786. John is son of Violet, but is Thomas? In the Rev. War Pension record, it states Violet GAW, widow of John GAW, m John CALHOUN in 1790. She had son John GAW b 1786. In Violetís will in Indiana she refers to "my son" John. Why no mention of my ancestor Thomas b 1777? Thomas GAW, m 1799 Nancy HOOD (d/o Thomas HOOD) and resided in Greenville Co., SC. He purchased land there in 1801 and sold in 1812 to move to Jackson Co., TN. Does anyone have information that John GAW (father) may have had a 1st wife and Violet may have been his 2nd wife?  My ancestor Thomas GAW was b 3 Sep 1777 in SC.  His father John GAW d 1788 in Abbeville  Co., SC leaving a widow, Violet, who married in 1790 John CALHOUN and moved to
Dearborn Co., IN with her son John GAW b 1786.  Thomas GAW continued to live in SC, purchasing land in Greenville Co. in 1801 and selling in 1812 to move to Jackson Co., TN. Thomas m 1799 Nancy HOOD (b abt 1782, d/o Thomas HOOD and Sarah MORGAN) of Pendleton/Greenville Cos., SC.  They appeared in Greenville Co., SC census for 1800 and again in 1810 (as Thomas GAN).  Any information on Thomas or John GAW would be much Appreciated.  
NOTE:  There is a John McGAW of Abbeville Co., SC b 1745, d 1805 who had a son John.
There has been information submitted in various forms that has merged  John McGAW b 1785
with my ancestor's brother John GAW b 1786.  I have proof they are two separate individuals if
anyone should care to contact me.  

I don't know if my GAW line and the Abbeville Co., SC McGAW line are connected, frankly it
seems too much of a coincidence to be in the same area at the same time and not be
connected, but if we are it is in a previous generation.

I have hit that frustrating brick wall and am seeking help and guidance. My g.g.g.g.g.grandfather was Alexander HAMILTON (common names seem to be much more difficult to research and be sure that they are your family!) Here is what I know for sure: Before 1805, Alexander HAMILTON lived in SC. He moved to Ohio around 1805 with a group of Associate Reformed Presbyterians and he became a founding Elder of the Hopewell Presbyterian Church. Alexander had at least 5 children, at least 3 of those children were born in SC, the children born in SC are John b. 1782, Samuel b. 1773, and Jane b. 1784, the other children are Nancy and Israel and I don't know where they were born. I do not know who Alexander's wife was, I do know that he had a brother Andrew who also moved to Ohio.  There is another HAMILTON family that lived in the 96th District area around this same time, they were related to the Calhoun family. This does not appear to be my Alexander HAMILTON. By all accounts my Alexander HAMILTON fought in the Revolutionary War. Because of his relationship to Hopewell Presbyterian church and Rev. Porter, I think he must have been a member of Long Cane Creek Presbyterian Church or Hopewell Presbyterian Church in SC, but I can find no records to confirm this.  I am totally lost having looked at every record I know to check. I have not been at this very long so I am sure that knowledgeable family researchers out there would know better ways to approach this and places to look. Any help or sugestions are greatly appreciated.

I would like to correspond / exchange data and ideas with anyone interested or researching the Hanvey family (any and all branches). Especially, would like to exchange information on the ancestors or decendents of William Hanvey. WilliamHanvey was most likely born in County Down in the Kingdom of Ireland ca 1740, and was certainly the immigrant ancestor of the great Hanvey Family originating in the Colony of SC. He and his wife, Sarah, whose maiden name is unknown, arrived with their young daughter, Jane, at Charles Towne in the Province of SC on Thursday - 19 February 1767. Sarah was born ca 1741 and Jane was born ca 1764. William and his family were among a group of poor Irish Protestants who arrived on the ship, Earl of Hillsborough. The vessel had sailed from Belfast in the Kingdom of Ireland on 30 November 1766. William received a 250 acre Royal Land Grant in the Long Cane Section, near the Belfast Township of SC and his decendents have spread to all parts of the county. I have over 6000 records and much reference data on individuals related to this line. I will gladly correspond with anyone interested in the Hanvey family.

The couple lived out their lives in Warrick County, IN. I suspect that Thomas was the illegitimate son of one Thomas Baker, also of Abbeville and Warrick Counties. The name is pronounced as hers-ton, but I wonder if it was originally spelled Hairston. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am seeking any reference to these surnames. Francis or Isham (Isom) HESTERLY and Sarah PENNINGTON. Francis and Sarah married about 1800-04 probably in the border area of SC/GA. Their first child is believed to have been born in 1805(?) in the Greenville area. Isham (Isom) is believed to have been either the brother or perhaps the father of Francis. I hope to find their parents for another generation connection.

The last firm connection I have is Benjamin HILL, who was born in 1796 (not sure if in GA or SC) and his father was (I believe) Robert HILL. I am trying to make connections to HILLs in that area that might be used to confirm other data. Do you have any listing on HILLs in the cemetary records you have research or any other data you might have.

I am trying to locate the gravesite of an infant boy, surname of DUDLEY, that was born to James Buford and Lelia Minervah HOLCOMB DUDLEY, around 1920. This family lived a short while in Abbeville before moving back to Athens, GA. There seems to be a pull for many generations of Holcombs to moved back and forth between different cities in north east GA, and Abbeville. There had to be relatives in Abbeville that kept the descendants connected to this area, but I have yet to make that connection. Any help you can give me will be most appreciated.

I am searching for the graves of the following HOLCOMB/E relatives that may be buried in the Abbeville area: Joshua L., possibly born Greenville, SC, 1802-03, his wife Malinda Gooch, born SC, 1810-11. They raised a family in Rabun Co, GA, but don't appear to be buried there. Their grandson, Joshua Thompson HOLCOMB, and his wife Mary Elizabeth Shoemake or Shoemaker, had two children while living in Abbeville: Lelia, born 1893 and Mamie, born 1895. Mary Elizabeth died about 1901-02, and I have been unable to locate her grave as well.  They were of the Baptist faith, and Joshua Thompson HOLCOMBE was, by trade, a leatherworker, shoemaker. I understand there was a large leatherworks factory in the Abbeville area during the late 1800's, early 1900's. Joshua was also a member of the Woodman of the World, I.O.O.W., and Junior Order of American Mechanics. He is buried in Spalding Co., GA. Any information you can give me will be most appreciated.

Frederick IVES was in Abbeville County, SC, in the 1850 and 1860 census as a 42-year-old, 45-year-old (respectively) tailor who was born in England. (He didn't age much, did he?) He married Susan Smith, of Abbeville County, and they had three daughters, Sarah Elizabeth, Gertrude Cornelia, and Frances, all born before 1850. His wife died before the 1860 census, and he's no longer in SC according to the 1870 census index. (The girls were raised by their Smith grandparents.) A family story says that one of Gertrude Cornelia's daughters was named "Mattie Giben" for an IVES aunt. Supposedly, aunt Mattie IVES married a GIBEN, lived in Charleston, was well-to-do, and had a drug habit which destroyed her and her fortune (c. 1860s-1890s). When did Frederick IVES come to this country, where was he before he was in Abbeville, who were his parents, and who was Mattie IVES GIBEN?

I am desperately seeking information on my ancestors who once lived in Abbeville, SC. I thought perhaps you could give me an idea where to write or email for the info. My ancestor, A. JEROME (sometimes spelled JAROME) lived in Abbeville Co in the 1830's and possibly the 1840's. The only info I have on him is his birth year, 1813, and that he had two daughters, Mary born about 1833, and Amanda. Nothing else. If you can help, it will be greatly appreciated.

I am looking for any information on these two individuals : Andrew Jackson JOHNSON and H. Ann Darby got married on Dec. 24, 1857 somewhere in SC. I do not know where they were born but do have the months and years of their births. Andrew was born in Nov. 1836 and Ann was born in May 1842. They had 7 children and lived mostly in GA. Would someone help locate the place of marriage that might help me locate where their parents lived? I have seen many Andrew JOHNSONs on the GA 1860 but am unable to narrow them down. Their first child was Edward JOHNSON born May 22, 1860 - place unknown. This child could have been born in SC where they could have lived after their marriage. The second child was born in Ellaville, GA (County of Schley), William JOHNSON born July 11, 1865. So this time frame could place them in SC (County of Abbeville) somewhere around 1857 through 1865.
