I am researching the Berry family tree. My GGGgrandfather,

to trace him. Any information on who his father or any brothers are
would be appreciated.

I am searching for the descendants of Silas Brogen and his wife
Christian McPherson who married 15 May 1804 in Cumberland
County, NC. I believe Christian and Silas may have moved to Chesterfield
District to be with the family of her brother, Malcolm McPherson.
Perhaps they all moved there together. I want to establish that
Christian was the sister of Malcolm who died in the Chesterfield District in
- CARTLEDGE - Susan Bulla,
I am researching John Cartledge and his descendents. I am
attempting to prove that Elijah Catledge is his son. The

possible, but most commonly Cartledge, Cartlege, Catledge, Catlege.

I am trying to locate my descendant Shadrach Ditto. He is
listed in the 1810 census in Chesterfield County, SC. He was in the 1800
census in Richmond County, NC, right across the border. He originally
came down from Chatham County, NC. He was about 55 - 65 years old in
1810. From reading thus far, it seems like there may be few records from
that time because of a fire. Thank you for any help.

I am seeking my great grandparents Tom and Lily Horne.
They are from Chesterfield County, SC. They have children by the name of
Clarence, born April 25, 1910, along with his twin brother Clyde. They
also have a son Garfield, and a daughter Myrtle Horne who became

- KIRKLEY - Maxine Bobco,
I am originally from Chesterfield County, SC and I am trying to trace my
Kirkley roots. I am a descendant of Asa Kirkley
born 1816 who was the son of Rachel Kirkley born about 1782,
died 1862. I am trying to determine who Rachel's husband was. I
have all of the information on the settlement of her estate in 1862 which
lists all of her children (Elizabeth married John Sullivan, Una married
Clyburn Blackwell, John A., Asa, Thomas, Mary married Thomas Ogburn, Rosanna
married James Dunn, Sarah married Abram Sullivan. However, there is no mention
of who her husband was. He died before 1830. I have seen
speculation about there being an Asa Kirkley Sr. and it seems
most of the people who say that claim their information came from you.
Does anyone have information on an Asa Sr? I haven't seen any proof.

Milton which would be nice if this were my John Milton's father.
Anything would be appreciated. Thanks.
- MURDOCK - Mike Murdock,
My father, now deceased, was born in Lee County, SC, but lived in Cheraw until
he joined the Army in the late 1930's. He use to tell me stories about
his ancestor (either great or great great grandfather) having served in the SC
Militia during the Civil War. I wonder where I might find information
about that and my family in Chesterfield County? My father was John
Tyson Murdock born 27 February 1919; my uncle was Lacoast
Murdock; my grandmother was Lillie Hodge Murdock, and my
grandfather was John Tyson Murdock. Thanks in advance.

Cheraw, SC area and some are buried in St. David's Cemetery.

I am searching for information about Norman Shaw who is listed

to be a widow and the mother of several children. She is listed in
Chesterfield County census records in 1820, 1830, 1840, 1850 and 1860.
- THREATT - Charles Bridges,
My great grandfather, John Alexander Knight was born 12 June 1836 and died 16
April 1912 in Avoca, OK. My grandfather says his mother's maiden name
was Abergail Threatt. She died shortly after his birth on
3 Apr 1868 in Chesterfield, SC. The 1860 census for Chesterfield, SC
(page 154) shows Thomas Threatt, age 32. In the household were Flora,
age 19; Mary A., age 17; Evan Knight, age 24; and a female age 15. I
take her name to be Abagail and believe she was my great grandmother. I
need someone to also look at the census and see if they agree on the name.
Others have come up with interesting variations and assume the first letter is
an "S". Could someone help me confirm this once and for all.
