Mathias Beaver and Elizabeth Blakeney were married
in 1815 in Lancaster County, South Carolina. After their marriage, they lived
in Chesterfield County, South Carolina. Betsy also lived in MS, GA, TX,
and NC during her lifetime.
I am particularly interested in connecting the grandchildren
who lived in Augusta, GA. I believe these to be the children of Alfred
or Jones, but have found no one who is researching these lines.
Three of the Beaver sons married Funderburk
women. Does any Funderburk researcher know the given names of these
wives and the children of their unions? Would love to share/compare info
with researchers on any of these lines.
Mathias Beaver was born 1792, died 1877; in
1815 he married Elizabeth Blakeney, born 1797, daughter of John
Blakeney, Jr. (1758-1848), and died 1898. They had the following
Infant Beaver, born 1816; Louisa Beaver,
born 1817, married Hugh Jenkins; Jones Beaver, born in SC,
married a Funderburk, died in GA.; Fernetta "Fernettie"
Beaver born 1820, married Pleasant Pigg, died 1910; James Beaver,
born 1822, married a Funderburk; Nancy Beaver,
born 1823; Mary Beaver, born 1825; Frances Beaver,
born 1827, in 1861 married John N. Sanders, died 1915; Alfred
Beaver, born 1828; Aaron Beaver, born 1830; Elizabeth
Beaver, born 1832, married Wilson Threatt, died

Elliott, died 1931 in TX; John Beaver, born 1838;
Nathaniel "Nathan" Beaver, born 1841 in Chesterfield County, SC,
in 1862 married Paralee "Polly" Funderburk, in 1880 married
Susan J. Baxter, in 1893 married Kate Marley, died 1939 in Rising Star, TX;
and Elihu Beaver, born March 20, 1843.
- BOATWRIGHT - Cassie D.
I am looking for information on my GGGrandfather, Cally Boatwright.
That is the only name that my family knew him by. Someone told me that
it was possibly a nickname, for perhaps Calvin, but I have no proof of that.
All I have is my GGrandfather's death certificate with the name Cally
Boatwright on it. It says on the death certificate that his mother was
Hennie Hurst. I did find out something that might be of some help if it
is connected. I found a Calvin Boatwright that married a Henrietta
Hurst. So perhaps they both went by nicknames? I have a copy of
the 1880 Census with Cally and Henny Boatwright on it. But my
grandfather wasn't born until 1882, George W. Boatwright. There isn't an
1890 census, and no one has been able to find Cally and/or Calvin on the 1900
Census anywhere. But one thing did catch my attention, my grandmother
always said that Cally left his family here and moved to Florida and started a
new family. At which, I have found a Calvin Boatwright in 1910, 1920,
and his family in 1930 Census images. And it also coincides because it
said he was born in SC. What I want to know is, is my Cally Boatwright
really Calvin Boatwright, son of Lewis Boatwright and Margaret Elizabeth
- BOONE - Rose Baker,
My grandfather was born in Chesterfield County, SC. He celebrated his
birthday September 1, 1920. He was never really sure of the year.
His name was Willie Lee Boone.
I am trying to find information on Alex and Sarah (Pearl?) Carter.
Alex was born in 1864. Sarah's maiden name was Moore. They had 5
children: John, Henry, Alex, Rosemary and a baby that died very young.
They lived in what was known as Cole Hill District in Chesterfield
County. John was born 1904 or 1905 and was married to Anna Thelma
Crowley and they had a large family (all still living). Any
information would be appreciated. Thank you.
I am seeking information about Repsey Tucker's family and
George Davidson's family. Repsey's daughter Lottie
married Asa Davidson son of George Davidson.
- GAINEY - Lloyd
Looking for information on Charlie Ganey and Susan Munn Ganey
who lived at Jefferson for most of the period from 1880 to 1916 when
they moved to Cheraw. Susan was a daughter of Joseph Munn and Emiline
Sullivan from Jefferson. Charlie was supposedly adopted and was not
really a Ganey. May have come from Boston or Baltimore. Was supposedly
Irish or German. He died in Cheraw in 1918 and supposedly his mother
or stepmother was still living up north when he died.

I am looking for the parents and siblings of James Hodges born
near Cheraw, Chesterfield Co., SC, Ca. 1750. His first wife is un-known
and second wife was Rachel Ann and I have no marriage dates or places. I
don't know how long this family was in South Carolina, as they were in
Tennessee by 1802 and later went to Limestone Co., Alabama. Any
information on any of the Hodges in Chesterfield County mid to

- KIRKLEY - Kent
I am researching the Kirkley families of Chesterfield
District/County in the time frame of the late 1700's to 1810. These
Kirkley families lived along the Lynches River and their children moved
across the river into Kershaw District/County around 1795-1800. Some
of these Kirkleys were incorrectly recorded as Kirkland's in the 1790, 1800
and 1810 Census. I am looking for any information on these Kirkley
families or children.

I am seeking a grave of a Mrs. Moses Parker (who moved to
Marlboro county and married Nancy Thomas, 12 children) from 1765 to

last child, a daughter named Mary. Other daughters were Sarah Parker

I am looking for Dennis Quinlen buried in Kerhaw, South
Carolina. His wife was a McMillon. Thanks.
- ROSCOE - James R. Rascoe,
I would like to further identify who the parents or paternal grandparents of
Alexander R. Roscoe were. Alexander R. Roscoe was also
known as "Sandy". He was born in South Carolina on October 11, 1871, and
died July 28, 1939. He was married to Annie Jane Lisenby about 1890.
They resided around or between Ruby and Chesterfield, SC, and they are both
buried in the Hopewell Baptist Church cemetery.
Marie Wiggins in her book, "Our Lisenby Lines," identified Alexander Roscoe's
parents as being William and Isabell Roscoe. I believe this to be
incorrect. The censuses never show an Alexander Roscoe or a Sandy Roscoe
in their household. The 1880 Census does show a Sandy Roscoe in the
household of William and Nancy Roscoe. This William is a completely
different William Roscoe than the one who married Isabell. The 1880
census of the William and Nancy Roscoe who had an 8 year old son named Sandy
also included the older daughter named Susannah and a younger brother named
Siant. Looking back to the 1870 census, there is a household for a
William and Mary Roscoe with a daughter named Susannah. This is probably
the same William but is Nancy and Mary the same person?
The William Roscoe who married Isabell, (as a second wife) was first married
to a Julia Cross who died about 1860-61. William and Julia Roscoe had a
son named William Roscoe who was married to a Mary Jane White, sometime
between 1886 and 1892. He may possibly be the father of Alexander
however that is doubtful because in the 1870 census, the William Roscoe who
had a daughter named Susanna is shown to be a different William than the one
who was a son of the William who married Isabell. That William is still
in his father's household in 1870. There is no death certificate for
Alexander Roscoe at the South Carolina DHEC.
- SHOEMAKE - H.D.
I have been doing research in Chesterfield County Census and public records
off and on since 1976. I have been researching the Shoemake name and

continue to look for information on a Moses Sr. and an Abijah Shoemake
in Chesterfield County, SC from 1790-1830. Thanks.
- TILLER -

to Sept. 19, 1961) and Liza Ann Odom (April 23, 1877 to Sept. 24, 1965).
The family moved to North Carolina just outside of South Carolina in 1928 to
