Looking for information re the death of my great grandfather WILLIAM ALEXANDER who died 13 August 1913 in Columbia. William was a stonemason who had travelled from Tillyfourie, Aberdeenshire, Scotland to America to find work. Ellis Island records show he arrived in NY in Feb 1913. We don't know how he died. Was he killed in an accident at a quarry? If so, which one? Was there an inquest or a newspaper report? Is he buried locally? We found mentions of William in
the union records here, so that might be a way of finding him. Any information
gratefully received as it is not possible for me to travel to U.S.

I am trying to find information on Samuel Scott who died before 1820 and is mentioned in the will of his brother William dated Jun 28, 1820 recorded in the Richland County Courthouse. . Samuel's children were Joseph, William, John, Samuel, James, Sarah, Mary and Jane. Siblings: William, Sarah (Weston), Elizabeth (Dinkins), Mary (Bostick) and Esther (Thompson). I am hoping to find a information on John to see if he moved to Lexington County around 1830 and then to Lee County, GA around 1850. The John I am searching for would have been born Abt 1794 and married to a Mary born about 1796 both from South Carolina.
