Our great-great grandfather, William M. ALSOBROOK, is
listed in the 1850 Dyer County, TN, and 1860 Carroll Parish LA
Censuses. Two out of three censuses show William M. ALSOBROOK born

ALSOBROOK in the 1830 SC Census and all three are in Chesterfield

Seeking information regarding Donald NICHOLSON, Merchant,
who died in Cheraw, Chesterfield County, SC, on 5 February 1823. He
had a brother, John NICHOLSON, who died in Prince Edward Island, Canada
ca. 1820, both probably born in Scotland. Have probate records
relating to both. Would like to exchange information. Thanks.
I am researching the William McKay family tree and found
several ancestors that were related to NICHOLSON's. The family Bible
that is one of my primary sources contains the following passage:
"the Nicholsons came to America in 1775...landed in Wilmington and
settled in North Carolina near Fayetteville. From there they moved
to Chesterfield District South Carolina. They were originally from
Invocrarra (sp?) in Scotland." The relatives that bear
Nicholson middle names were Angus Nicholson McKay (b. February 10, 1813)
and in the next generation, Hugh Nicholson McKay, second son of John
Andrew McKay and Mary Jane Postell (b. April 21, 1843). The McKays
migrated from Rowan County and Richmond County, NC, around 1775, and
settled in Chesterfield County, SC. It is possible that they were
either traveling with the Nicholson's when they migrated or inter-married
early in the 1800's. I have reconstructed much of the McKay family
history from 1774 to present, but the Nicholson's are a big unknown.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Elizabeth, Rachel, Marie, and Rebecca and possible another brother named
John. Depending on which census you read, the surname of this family
is sometimes spelled Rascow, Rascoe, Rasco, Ruscoe, and
It has been suggested and placed in the Roscoe Family File
at the Hartsville Genealogical Library that Oliver was a son of a John
RASCOE of Marlboro County and that this John RASCOE left his first family
and had a second family by a Lucinda or Lucy Clark in Marlboro
County. Other than the notations of this possibility, I have seen no
real proof that this is so.
I would appreciate hearing from and exchanging information
with any descendants or persons have any genealogical data on any of the
above mentioned persons. Any help will be appreciated.
