I am interested in learning more about the ancestry of Gadi BULLARD born 11 June 1902, died May 1979. This Gadi lived in Chesterfield, SC according to the Social Security Death Index. In my family research, I have located a Gadi BULLARD in Marlboro County, SC in 1800-1820-1840. In 1835-1837 he is found in a store account book in DeKalb County, AL. This store was about 5 miles from where my BULLARD ancestors lived in DeKalb County, AL. Elizabeth BULLARD, husband unknown, was the mother of David, Robert, John Franklin, Henry and James BULLARD.

Would like to find out any information on TEAL family members from Chesterfield County, SC. Specifically, I am interested in locating, if possible, any descendants of my 3G grandfather William TEAL and his wife Isabella McRAE. It is stated in the estate settlement papers of Isabella that she and William had two children that resided in the Chesterfield District of SC and were now deceased. One was named Benjamin F. TEAL. The other was named Elizabeth TEAL. Elizabeth was married to a Hezekiah LIZENBY (or possibly Lisenby). Any information on these people or their families would be appreciated. I have information on William and his family members I would be willing to share.

Colleen Turnage 6/27/98
Last verified direct line ancestor is Robert Bennett TURNAGE, who appears as a child in 1850 SC Chesterfield County census. Father is listed as John TURNAGE with his wife, Effa. I've been told that Effa was John TURNAGE's 2nd wife, and that John TURNAGE and Effa had no children together. I have also been told that Nancy McKAY was John TURNAGE's lst wife, but have been unable to find any information to substantiate this claim. I know that a will of John MCKAY of Marlboro County (1826) mentions a daughter, Nancy, wife of John TURNAGE, but would like more than this to verify her as the mother of one, some, or all of John TURNAGE's children. Any help much appreciated.

John WATTS was born in Chesterfield District, SC to Josiah WATTS (b. abt. 1780) and Margaret "Peggy" EVANS (b. abt. 1785) on May 26, 1805. The family moved to Wayne County, MS before 1810.

WATTS / EVANS / HAMILTON
Cynthia Porcher 4/27/98
I am researching my grandfather's family. He was Robert Lee WATTS, son of Townley B. WATTS and Hennie (Babe) EVANS. He had an older sister named Mame, but no younger siblings as his mother died from childbirth complications. He was raised by his grandmother EVANS. PaPa's father remarried and had about 10 more children. I do not have their names or the name of the second wife. PaPa was born June 23, 1893 and died in Charleston on March 21, 1990. He was married to Cornelia Alice HAMILTON of Union County, NC. Mama's sister Bess lived in Pageland (Mrs. C.M. Tucker, Sr.) They came to Charleston during the Depression. I do have a little more info, if that would be helpful. I have good HAMILTON family records, but almost nothing on WATTS and nothing on EVANS. Any help that you might be able to offer would be greatly appreciated.

Brenda Wood Johnston 4/27/98
I am searching for information on Henry WOOD, b. 1785, d. 1862, m. Catherine McDougal/McCullers (she was also adopted by Wilde family). Their children were: John A., Elizabeth, Joseph Butler, David Gregg, and William Henry. Sometime back in the 1830's, John A. WOOD (my GGgrandfather) and William Henry WOOD left Society Hill, near Cheraw, SC for GA and AL. This is all the history I have on the above Henry WOOD. Is there any record of the Henry WOOD family in this area? I assume they had a farm in the Society Hill area. Thank you.
