James LAFOY b. September 20, 1757 in Bordeaux, France moved to Pendleton or Abbeville District, SC in about 1795 from Surry County, NC. I recently reviewed an inventory of Wills, Estates, Inventories, Tax Returns and Census Records for the Pendleton district and Anderson County, SC. (compiled by V. Alexander, C. Elliott, and B. Willie). In this inventory, there is a summary of the will of Thomas Erskin. Ugenia LAFOY is listed as one of his daughters. Does anyone have any information about the LAFOY family that may have lived in the Abbeville area from about 1795 - 1803 (when the family moved to Franklin County, GA).

Wade and Hiram were neighbors on TX Census of 1850, but Mary Jane was already married to David LOVE.

I am searching for the surname of the wife of John Read LONG who migrated from St Marys, MD to Abbeville about 1775. There he married Sarah or Sally(?) in 1779. I have her born in Abbeville, but have no documentation to prove it. I believe her name could possibly have been Porter because her grandson Reuben has Reuben Porter Long Jr. on his headstone in MS. His father, the son of John Read and Sally/Sarah(?), would have been Reuben Porter LONG Sr is my logic. I can find no connection with Porter anywhere else and it's really just a guess. John Read and Sally/Sarah(?) had the following children at Abbeville: Nancy (about 1780); Harrison (about 1782); Elizabeth (about 1783); Nicholas (about 1785); Alcey or Elcey (about 1787); Lucey (about 1789); and Reuben LONG Sr (about 1793). Reuben LONG Sr married Sussannah Mitchell (daughter of Benjamin Mitchell Jr and Keziah) 21 May 1819 at Abbeville. They moved to Greene Co, AL about 1820.

We LORD's have been seeking a lost branch that settled Dorchester and moved on to Abbeville. They came to NC by way of SC and, it is believed, they formed a part of the Dorchester Colony from MA that settled in SC 1696. Their pastor was the Rev. Joseph LORD, whose death was recorded on a simple monumental stone still in existence near Summerfield in that state. In 1752, these colonists moved in a body to GA, and the SC records say that "some of them went to NC." It was at an earlier date than this, however, October 19, 1739, that William LORD, of NC, the first of whom we have authentic knowledge, settled on Cape Fear River, and was a large planter in Brunswick County, [footnote: "Family Records; New Hanover County Records" Vol. A. B., p. 283] where he died 1748. He married, about 1728, Margaret, the daughter of James and Margaret Espey. Colonel William LORD II (1732-1780), their son, was also a large planter in Brunswick County, he and his father residing there until the beginning of the Revolutionary War, when they removed to Wilmington for greater security and protection. The town of Brunswick was abandoned, and now only the ruins of the beautiful church of St. Philip and its surrounding burial-ground are left to mark the site of the town which had been the home of the Royal Governors, Tryon and Dobbs. "In that churchyard lie the remains of the LORDs who dwelt there. Their gravestones still remain, but of the early colonists no memorials exist." William LORD represented Brunswick in the Legislature 1765 to 1777; was High Sheriff 1771; on the Committee of Safety June 20, 1775; on the Provincial Council at Halifax, which framed the State Constitution, April, 1775, and Lieutenant-Colonel of the NC Regiment, June, 1776 [footnote: "Colonial Records of NC" Vol. IX, p. 574, Vol. Xa, p. 622, etc]. He married, July 13, 1758, his cousin, Sarah Espey. Their son, John Quince LORD, married, 1792, Elizabeth S., the daughter of Richard and Elizabeth (Sharples) Bradley, and their daughter, Sarah Elizabeth, married John Rutherford London.

I am looking for some information on my Great Grandparents. We know they were immigrants from Scotland, landed in Abbeville, Abbeville, SC. They farmed on a very small piece of land in Abbeville, SC. Last name was Mac DILL and was on that farm in 1896. His wife's name was Reecyl Ordessa Unknown - This is a fairly unusual name and there are three generations with this name Reecyl Ordessa Mac DILL. (The Mother, Daughter and Grand-daughter). Son : Robert Herman Mac DILL - b. 9 Oct 1896, Abbeville, Abbeville SC - killed at 25yrs of age in Jan. 1921, in Pinehurst NC while working for the railroad. In 1920 he had married Alice Victoria Foster in Pinehurst, NC. After his death he was returned to Abbeville, Abbeville SC for burial. - His wife Alice Victoria being pregnant when he was killed had her baby daughter (our Mother) on 15 Jan 1921 born in Charlotte NC by Dr. Annie Alexandria. On Reecyl Ordessa Mac DILL's birth certificate, (our Mother) the name of the Father is spelled "McDILL" (which is the Irish spelling instead of the Scottish spelling Mac DILL). Alice Victoria then moved back to Maine and so our ancestry has never been found and we would like very much to find out some information. Daughter : Reecyl Ordessa Mac DILL - Married an Unknown Johnson (may have been Robert Bruce) and they had a son Robert Bruce Johnson b. 13 Jan 1921 in Charlotte, NC, the attending Doctor for their son was Dr. Annie Alexandria. This Unknown Johnson was a Pharmacist in either Charlotte or Raleigh SC.

While reading the history of Abbeville, I noted the name of Mallory relating to the secession. This name is of great interest to me. I am researching the Mallory family. My ggrandfather was William Mallory Kennedy (fought in Civil War from GA) and his grandmother was Dorothy Mallory Jarrett Kennedy. You may know of Devereaux Jarrett who was well-known for Travelers Rest (Jarrett Manor) in Toccoa, GA which is now a State Historical Site. Devereaux was the son of Dorothy Mallory Jarrett Kennedy and was born after his father, Robt. Jarrett, died.  After which Dorothy married my ggggrandfather and of course, she became my ggggrandmother. Her father was William Mallory who died in NC and was from Culpepper, VA.

Recently, I have learned that my 2nd G great grandmother may be Margaret MCGILL/MAGILL. According to the S.C. census in 1790 there was a Margaret McGILL that lived in Abbeville Co. This could not be my Margaret, but it may be her Mother. My Grandmother was born in the early 1790's so she would not be in the census. Margaret married William Goodall in Richland Co, GA around 1810. Any information will be most welcome. Thank you.

I am trying to track some ancestors back to SC and am looking at "associated families" who may have moved with them. The folks I'm actually working are MCMICHAELs, and names that are linked with them by marriage, deeds, or where they lived in Bedford Co TN in the period 1818 - 1840 are: Neely S. PATTON, John and Ann PATTON, Martha ROSS, William ROSS, Ruth A. WHITWORTH, Nathan VANNOY and Andrew VANNOY. I have found that the names Ross and Patton both cluster in Abbeville District SC around 1800. Based on this I have searched out a potential Ross that matches Martha, wife of Alexander McMichael (see data on McMichaels below): 
Martha ROSS (baptized 1797, Abbeville, SC) daughter of William ROSS and Martha. "The Researcher" E. P. Ellsberry, ed. Box 206, Chillicothe, MO July 1970 #28 Will of William Ross Aug. 27, 1796 Abbeville Dist., SC) Rec. March 28, 1797 Wife, Martha Ross, William Ross, & Robt. Ellis, Exrs. Children: William, Thomas, Martha, Jean, and John Ross. Grandson, William Ross, Jr., son in law, William Garrett. Inv. made June 8, 1797 by John Lindsey, Sr., John and Isaac Cowan. Witnesses: Robert Gilmor, John Lindsey, and Joseph Kolb. 
A William Ross also had a tract of land adjoining the MCMICHAELS in TN (Bedford Co TN Deeds, CC 174). More data on the MCMICHAEL family group I'm researching follows: 
1) Margaret Unknown b. 1760 in Ireland; d. 10 Jun 1846 in Bedford Co, TN; m. Unknown (probably Robert) McMichael before 1793. Margaret Unknown and Unknown McMichael had the following children: 
a) Alexander McMichael, b. 1 Jun 1793 in SC; d. 30 Nov 1871 in Coffee Co, TN; m. Martha Ross, b. 3 Jul 1793. 
b) John McMichael, b. 18 Feb 1794 in SC; d. 5 Jun 1836 in Pike Co, MO; m. Ruthy Whitworth on 3 Oct 1822. 
c) Jane McMichael, m. Andrew Vannoy. 
d) James McMichael, b. Sep 1800 in SC; d. 8 May 1857 in Coffee Co, TN 
e) William McMichael, b. 1802 in SC; d. May 1880 in Coffee Co, TN; m. Safrona Unknown before 1835; b. about 1813 in SC. 
f) Mary McMichael, b. 7 Sep 1804 in SC; d. 3 June 1889 in Pike Co, MO; m. Dr. Nathan Vannoy about 1827.

My local Kentucky genealogical resources do not contain accessable records of the SC Censuses. I have in the past obtained indexes of the 1840 and 1850 Censuses in which I have located my possible SC ancestor: 1840--Obediah Raney (Greenville Co) p. 266 & 1850--Oaburry R.

I'm looking for a Hiram SAMPLE, born in Abbeville, SC in 1798. I have his father listed as William, but nothing to confirm this. He was married to Frances (?) who was born in 1798. Their children were William (b.1826, S.C.), Elizabeth (b.1831, Tennessee) - which means he moved to Carroll Co. TN between 1826 and 1831), Hyder Allen David (b.8-5-1862, TN), Sophina (b.1835, TN), Jane (b.1838, TN), & James (b.1840, TN). I have searched your site and found one William Sample (b.abt 1770), but his children are different and do not indicate Hiram. My reasoning in thinking the William is correct is Hiram's first son was named William.

I am searching for the SAVAGE family and I know Thomas and Anny Gillespie were in Abbeville in 1810. She later was in Dekalb Co. GA in 1830 and her husband Thomas was not there. He must have died before 1830. My John S. SAVAGE was born in the "upper Edgefield District" SC in abt. 1800. He married Ann H. Gillespie before 1825 for his son, James Anderson SAVAGE, was born in SC in 1825. The Gillespie family was closely tied to the Jones family who had many Methodist ministers in their ranks. Three of the Gillespie girls married 3 Jones brothers in GA in the 1820-30 s. These Jones were from the Abbeville area too. Anny Gillespie we think was the daughter of Hugh McLin of Abbeville. The question is--WHO was my John S. Savage???? He passed through GA and then AL and was on the 1840 Census in Winston Co., MS. He died on Christmas Day in 1847 at about the age of 47.

I am searching for John SCOGIN, born approximately 1760-1770, who married Susannah and lived possibly in Abbeville County, SC since he was on the 1800 Abbeville, SC Census. John moved to Alabama around 1818. I believe John SCOGINís children were : Wright SCOGIN born in 1800, Sarah SCOGIN born in 1802, and John SCOGIN, Jr. born approximately 1804-1806. John and Susannah SCOGIN may have moved in 1818-1819 to "Old Town" in Conecuh County, Alabama. Daughter, Sarah Scogin married in Pike County, Alabama, in 1821 to Wiley Sawyer. Wright Scogin married Susan Hawthorne in Conecuh County, Alabama around 1823. John Scogin, Jr. married a Susannah "Susan" who was born in 1806 in SC and her surname may have been DENNIS, and they married in Alabama in 1825-John, Jr. died in 1847 in Pike County, Alabama, leaving Susan Scogin a widow with seven children. Wright, Sarah, and John, Jr. all named a child John and Toliver. I believe their father or grandfather was named John Toliver SCOGIN. Wright Scogin moved from Monroe County,Alabama to Leake County, Mississippi, then on to Nacogdoches County, Texas by 1860 and died there in 1875. Sarah Scogin Sawyer died in Monroe County, Alabama, in 1856. The family name of SCOGIN had a variety of spellings : SCOGINS and SCOGGINS. I would appreciate hearing from any descendants of this SCOGIN family.

I am researching the SCOGGINS family from the Abbeville area. My gggrand-father, Thomas Decatur SCOGGINS, was born in Abbeville in 1854. He married Georgia Ann Shaw in 1879. They moved to Augusta, GA ~1900-1910. I believe T.D. SCOGGINS' father was a sawyer named William who was born in 1826(?).
The SCOGGINS family has remained in the Augusta area since that time. My grandfather was Alfred Decatur SCOGGINS (b.1898 in Honea Path, SC). I believe Jimmy SCOGGINS, the mayor of Lowndesville is another relative. I found another group of SCOGGINS in 1790 in the Abbeville area but haven't been able to establish a link. Willis SCOGGINS fought in the Revolution and was awarded 640 acres of land for his service. He settled in the Abbeville area and had 15 children. I am also related to Lollie SCOGGINS Waters who died Easter Sunday 1920 when the ferry at Harper's Ferry was swept away by the Savannah River.

I am trying to find a source to better ascertain birth dates and marriage dates for James SHIRLEY who was born in Virginia in 1778 or before. He moved to Abbeville County with many relatives in the time period from about 1790 or later. I have a lot of information coming in that relates to him and his alleged children as well as their birth dates etc. Some of it makes no sense at all snf I doubt it's accuracy. I am certain about most of his children from about 1801 forward due to following their path from SC to AL to AR and to TX. James SHIRLEY as well as his sons and grandsons were all alive in the 1860 Census in Arkansas along with other relatives. Is there a good source for marrigaes, births, deaths, etc. for Abbeville County during this time period. Any help will be appreciated. I also understand that they were in Pendleton County later on prior to moving to AL in St. Clair County. James SHIRLEY from Virginia was my great great great great grandfather.

Well still looking for the SIMPSONS who were in Abbeville for sure 1819 for my John K. SIMPSON was born there but have more info that connects him to his father who was also a John SIMPSON who was born in VA to a William and Jane (Hines) SIMPSON who was born in Bucks Co, PA. Who was also son of a William SIMPSON and a JANE ??? Also not too popular for this group of mind who went south is that they were kin to John SIMPSON who was a brother to the William who was father of my Johnís who was the father of a Hannan SIMPSON who married a Hiram Root GRANT father of Hiram Ulysses GRANT better known as Ulysees S. GRANT. Who was president and general of the USA. in a bad time of living.... If you donít know the "S" in his name really meant nothing it was given by mistake to West Point by the senator who supported him to an appointment at West Point they asked the senator for his full name and did not know so he just said "S" as his motherís maiden name was SIMPSON.... Any way my Johnís father had a will probated in Greene Co, TN May of 1844 names his children....So if this dings any bells and whistles let me hear from you also have all my 1819 John Kelley SIMPSONíS family now tracking more back and his siblings and more Proofing of all of this for I found out that there was a real connection to Hiram Ulysses GRANT... need all the help I can get.

I am the gr gr granddaughter of Richard Wright SIMPSON, who help to found Clemson University after the death of Thomas Clemson. I have a copy of the family tree my gr gr grandfather and his wife, Maria Louise GARLINGTON made. I have also looked over the Holmes Document for clues. My great grandmother was not yet married when her father updated the document. The problem I have encountered is in proving the parentage of their daughter Jean Stobo SIMPSON's husband, Williston Wightman KLUGH. I have a story rumbling around the back of my memory that tells me his father was Thomas Henry KLUGH of Abbeville, SC. All of my older family has already passed, so I am piecing this together from memory unaided by any oral history from other family members. I seem to recall my Mama, Jean Adrith LINEBERGER Osborne, telling me that my gr grandfather, Williston Wightman KLUGH had a falling out with his father Thomas Henry KLUGH, was disinherited, and all family records of him existing were destroyed by Thomas. W.W. was supposed to have had one sister. I also believe he may have been in the military, and died in service to our country.

I am looking for any information on the STINSON & MCDANIEL families that were in the Pendleton Co of SC from the 1770 to 1814 era. I have the following information on the STINSON & MCDANIEL From Kentucky A history Of the State by W. H. Perrin, published in 1880ís. William STINSON (deceased) was born in SC on the 19th day of Nov. 1780. His Father (Thomas STINSON) was a soldier in the Rev. War, and during his absence in the army his home was destroyed by the Indians, and all the family, except the subject of this sketch and his sister cruelly massacred. William STINSON left SC about 1814 came to Kentucky and settled in Grayson Co, Kentucky. Mr. STINSON was married to Molly McDaniel of SC and bore him 7 children :  Margaret, John, Nancy, Susannah, Caleb, Joel, & William. Mr. STINSONís marriage was solemnized in his native state and Mrs. Molly McDaniel STINSON died in Grayson Co, Kentucky in 1829. William died in 1856 in Grayson Co, Kentucky. William STINSON was the child of Thomas and Margaret STINSON, born in Pendleton Co, SC. Any help with my research will be appreciated. I will have very limited time available when I visit SC. Directions to the best resources available in the Old Pendleton District will be appreciated.

I am a WAKEFIELD descendant. There is a book on the WAKEFIELDs going back to Ireland, and forward as far as my gg grandfather. Salt Lake City has it on microfilm. The title is "Wakefield Memorial" - comprising an historical, genealogical and biographical register of the name and family of WAKEFIELD, compiled by Homer WAKEFIELD. It is a very interesting book. Now, to my problem. Is there is a family tree written down somewhere on John HURST/HEARST, who received a land grant in 1766? I can't find anyone researching these people, so I assume it has already been done. I am descended from his son, Thomas, who married Isabella Miller and came to MO in 1804.

He was supposedly (no proof) born ca. 1757, but I have no clue as to where, who his parents were or if he had siblings. He was listed as head of household in 1790. At his death in 1791/1792, he was worth "32 pounds sterling" and had five children by Anne: George (1779), Nathaniel (1781), John, Nancy and Sarah. In 1804, the three boys moved to Pike/Amite Counties in MS. Anne BAILEY WELLS went with them. By this time, she had remarried to a man by the name of William MORROW(MORRAH). 
Anne BAILEY had several brothers and sisters, all of whom came to Abbeville in 1767. Their names were: Elizabeth, Isabel, Janet, William, Joseph, Nathaniel Jr. Isabel married a man by the last name of MULLINS and Elizabeth married Joel THACKER.

I am a new internet genealogist and support the idea of this endeavor. I hope to get involved at my local level. My family has strong roots in the Old Ninety-six District of SC, primarily Anderson and Oconee Counties. I am trying to locate the parents of Susan Margaret WILLARD (b. 1858 & d. 1889) who married John Verner STRIBLING in 1875. Can anyone provide information about James C. WILLARD (b. 1802), listed on the Abbeville Census rolls in 1830, 1840, and 1850. (Can't read the 1860 census!) James C. WILLARD of Abbeville bought land in Oconee County in 1872 and it is possible that this is her father. Any help greatly appreciated.

Searching for parents of Martha Jane WILLIAMS b 1823 mar. William B. GAINES. Living next door to them in 1850 Abbeville is John and Elizabeth WILLIAMS and next to them is Jackey and Drucilla WILLIAMS. Iíve been told that he is of the lineage of Frederick WILLIAMS who died in Edgefield, 1808. This John was born in 1802 and is probably a grandson. In a folder in the Greenwood Library stated that John WILLIAMS who died in 1860 and is buried at Walnut Grove Baptist Church was the father of Martha Jane GAINES. Also had a son, Mastin and daughter Drucilla who married an Agnew.Any information appreciated.

In the mid to late 1700s I find information about Andrew WILLIAMSON in the Old 96 District. Does anyone know what the names of his children were? I am looking for the parents of Thomas WILLIAMSON (b. 1770 - according to the 1850 Tuscaloosa Co, AL Census where his age was given as 80 years old and birthplace as SC. I find THAT Thomas in the Tumbling Shoals area of Laurens Co, SC just prior to 1800. He married Rachel KINMAN, daughter of James KINMAN and one of their children was also named Thomas, and the second Thomas married Sarah POOL. Both these Thomas WILLIAMSON families sold their Laurens Co land and moved to Tuscaloosa Co, AL about 1843.

I am researching the WINN Family which migrated from SC to TN to AR. My ggggrandfather was John Minor WINN who is listed in the 1830, 1840 and the 1850 TN censuses (Carroll Co.), in addition to the 1880 AR census (Greene Co.). He would have been born about 1795 and his birth state and that of both parents is listed on all census records as SC. About his wife: all I know is her name (Sarah G.) as listed in the 1850 census. Their known children were: Samuel C. WINN (b. abt. 1819 TN, m. 1846 to Catherine L. CARLTON), Minor M. WINN (b 8/30/1821 TN, m. 1846 to Nancy YARBOUGH/YARBORY), John D. G. WINN (b. abt. 1823 TN, m. to Mahala and/or Susan), Robert WINN (b. abt. 1829 TN), Amanda A. WINN (b. abt. 1833 TN, m. 1858 to P.W.C. FOSTER), and Thomas WINN (b. abt. 1836 TN). I believe there was another daughter but cannot identify her conclusively--her name may have been Mary. This family, or part of it, moved westward from Carroll Co., TN, in the late 1850s and early 1860s to Greene Co., AR. 
John, Minor and William are names which have been used repeatedly in subsequent generations and leads one to believe they were connected to the WINN Brothers who arrived in SC in the mid-1700s from Virginia, but I have been unable to make the link. 
I am hopeful that John Minor Winn may have had siblings who remained in SC whose descendants might be able to identify the names of his parents. Any information would be appreciated.

Smallwood had an older brother by the name of Williamson WITT, ca. 1820, that was in Madison Co. FL by 1849.

Looking information on the descendants of Archibald Woods (b 1706, Ireland - d 1768, SC) and Isabella Gass (b 1717, PA - d 1766, SC). On 8 October 1764, Archibald sold the last of his property holdings in VA; left VA on 11 October 1764; and with his family, settled on the Savannah River near Abbeville, SC on 3 January 1765. Archibald and Isabella had the following verifiable children:
Michael, 1735 - 1808. Married three times (Lackey, Trimble, Shields). Settled in Washington Co, TN.
John, 1740 -1792. A lot of unknowns. Lived in Charleston SC, died in Charleston SC. Wife Unknown. 
Elizabeth, 1745 - 1820. Married Willis Breazeale, 1765, in Granville Co, SC. Died in Roane Co TN.
Hannah, 1742 - UNK. Married James Cowan on 12-24-1767.
Susannah, 1743 - UNK. Married John Trimble on 2-18-1768.
NOTE there is evidence that the Trimble Family of Virginia, sold all their property and accompanied Archibald and Isabella on the SC escapade.
Isabella, 1738 - UNK. Married James Crosby.
William, 1744 - 1802. Married Susannah Catherine McKinley (also cited as Mecklin).
I am particularly interested in the son William (1736 or 1744) and his wife Susannah Catherine McKinley (Mecklin). Both of their wills were probated in Abbeville, SC. Susannahís will (probated 1829) lists the following children and no other identifiers: Sons, James Woods William L. Woods (suspect to be gggrandfather) Michael Woods Andrew Woods Robert W.

Harden Of the above sons (although I suspect it is William L) Iím trying to confirm which one is the father of my ggrandfather James H.
