Rosalyn Alsobrook 3/28/2000
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 abt. 1831, born in SC. In 1850 he was in Dyer County, TN, with his bride, Sue Ann (Snow), living with a Pitts family. A search of GenWeb shows there was an ALSOBROOK in Chesterfield County in 1850. I am hoping this is either my William's father or a sibling. The census index lists only a Mary ALSOBROOK, an R.G. ALSOBROOK, and a WW ALSOBROOK in the 1830 SC Census and all three are in Chesterfield District. Any information on these Alsobrooks would be appreciated.

I am looking for anything on a Sarah HILL who, according to her daughter's death certificate, was born in Cheraw, NC. The best I can guess it was Cheraw, SC, and I am looking for guidance. She was born about 1810, and married Stephen H. WILLIAMS and settled in Anson County, NC. He was an overseer on a plantation. Sometime in the 1850's I think, they moved the family to Hamilton County, FL where he was a blacksmith and served as Justice of the Peace. They had the following children: Wincy A., born 1835; William J., born 1836; Eliza J., born 1838; Frances Tabitha, born 1843; Tenendia, born 1844; Hannah G., born 1846; Mary E., born 1848; Sarah A., born 1849. I think there were one or two older children as well. Thanks.

Carol Benton 7/16/99
My great, great grandfather was Warren Churchwell HINSON (aka Bonnie, Church, W.C.). His name appears in the minutes of the Fork Hill Baptist Church, January 8, 1881 to September 9, 1916. On April 8, 1893, the transcript states that "on request, letter of dismissal granted to Queen V. Hinson". Queen was the wife of Warren Churchwell HINSON. On January 13, 1894, W.C. was "excluded for not paying his pledge to the church". The family had moved to Richmond County, NC, by that time. There has been circumstancial evidence that Warren Churchwell HINSON was the son of Daniel HINSON and Frances Hilton HINSON and there was conjecture by V.C. Floyd that he was a Daniel's son, but there is no proof! Warren did not show up in any census with Daniel (although he was living next door to him in at least one census), and he was not mentioned in Daniel's Will. There was also some speculation that W.C. was a late in life child of James and Patsy Brewer Hilton because they had a child W.C.'s age living in the home on the 1840 census. The bottom line is that I have found nothing to prove his parentage. I would appreciate anyone who has any information that could help contacting me.

James T. Horn 6/17/99
I am interested in knowing the names of the children of Ephraim HORN. He was the first white settler in the NC/SC boarder between Anson County, NC and Chesterfield County, SC. He appears in the Census of 1800 and 1810 in Chesterfield County, SC. If there were a family Bible, and I believe there would have been, who? My great great great grandfather Sherod HORN settled south of Ephraim. He was listed in 1790 Census of Cheraw Dist. SC, then in 1800 he was listed in Darlington Co., SC. He moved into GA from there. Sherod's son Needham HORN appears in the 1820 Census of Wayne Co., MS with Ephraim's son James' sons John Hendricks HORN and Collins L. HORN. I am trying to connect the two families. I believe that Sherod HORN's father may be the brother of Ephraim HORN. Thanks.

He was said to have come from Chesterfield District, South Carolina with his mother and at least two siblings Elisha and Charles White MOON. Jesse was born September 24, 1795 in South Carolina. Cannot find any more on him. He preached in Kentucky until 1869, then he and his second wife, Nancy Cutlip, moved to Evansville, Indiana, then on to Missouri where he died in 1875. Thanks.

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.

Cynthia H. Porcher 4/24/99
My GGgrandfather was Pinckney D. RODGERS, b. ca 1826. He lived in Charleston before and after the Civil War, and married Mary J. MOORER. They had at least one child, a daughter named Victoria. Death records indicate that both Pinckney and Mary are buried in a private cemetery at Pregnalls, SC. There may have been family lands near there, as my grandfather was born in Pregnalls. I have never been able to find out anything about this RODGERS family. Recently, I located his Civil War records. He enlisted at Florence in April of 1861 and served as a Pvt in Co. B, 8th SC Infantry. He was wounded at Gettysburg on 2 July 1863, and taken prisoner at Ft. Delaware. His oath of allegiance at the end of the War lists his place of residence as Chesterfield, SC. Are there any RODGERS still in the area who recognize Pinckney D. RODGERS? Thanks.

Susan Brooks 10/23/99
I am trying to find information on my grandparents families: Jonas Franklin ROLLINS b. about 1873, d. 1934, and Mary Ella MILLER b. around 1880-1883, d. 1948. 1900 Chesterfield County, SC Census has Jonas Franklin ROLLINS married to Mattie with 3 young sons (Evan, Joseph, Sparford/Spofford). A dairy lists a Jonas RALLINGS married Roady (Rhody) Pigg in 1901 and a Jonas RALLINGS marrying a M.E. Miller in 1903 (which coincides with birthdates of my fathers brothers and sisters. The diary also mentions a Evans RALLINGS who died in 1910 whichmight coincide with verbal history that Evan died young. Verbal history and newspaper clipping say Jonas was buried at White Plains, whether at the church or at private cemetery, not sure. 1870 Chesterfield Census has Frank Jonas married to Mahala with one child Sarah (Sally) listed. Believe this is Jonas' father and there was another son John Littleton (Litt). Possibly more children? The 1900 Chesterfield County, SC Census lists Stephen MILLER, age 44, married to Henrietta Josephine, age 42. Children listed are George, Bogan F., Mary Ella, Annie Mae, Pearl E., and Frances. There were two names I couldn't read well and I believe a Lillie Mae had already married a Eubanks, later married Litt ROLLINS (Jonas' brother). Mary Ella's family Bible lists the birth dates of all of hers and Jonas' children but she also lists a Ethel ROLLINS born in 1900 who married an Andrew Helms in 1915. Verbal history says she was unmarried at the time of Ethel's birth. I would like to find out more about Ethel and her family. She seems to have disappeared in the 1940's. The 1870 Chesterfield County, SC Census lists Love MILLER, age 50, farmer married to Henrietta MILLER, age 45, teacher. They had children at home: Jane, 26; Seaburn, 19; Stephen, 17; Lucy A., 14; Jerome, 12; Luretta, 10; and Ogden Benjamin, 10. A 1920's legal document of Steve MILLERs (died 1924) says the lands were given to him by his father Love MILLER. The document says that the lands are bordered on two sides by Catherine OGBURN's land. A handwritten note from one of Steve MILLER's children says that Love MILLER's wife was Josephine OGBURN, b. 1857, d. 1901, buried at Five Forks Cemetery, also that Love MILLER is buried there. I found a tombstone that may be Josephine's but did not find one for Love MILLER. The note said Josephine was the daughter of Jonathan OGBURN who was married to Henrietta Giles. I have not been able to find information on this. If anyone has further information on any of the above, please help. Thank you.

ROSCOE and Connections
James R. Rasco 11/23/99
I am looking for information regarding a Rebecca Ann RASCO or ROSCOE who lived and died in Chesterfield County, SC. According to what information I have, she was born February 8, 1841 (might have been as early as 1836) and died February 8, 1923, according to the South Carolina Death Index. The 1860 census list her as 24 years of age in the household of Minda RASCOE. She has two children, Josephine RASCOE age 3, and Margaret RASCOE age 2. Rebecca, Josephine and Margaret are listed as "mulato" possibly due to their dark complextion. Family traditions say they were of mixed white and Indian blood. Rebecca RASCO is listed in the 1870 Census of Chesterfield County in Cole Hill Township as head of her household. She is shown as being a white female, 45 years of age. Listed in her household are two children, Magga RASCO white female age 14, and Joseph RASCO white male age 2. In the 1880 Census of Chesterfield County, Cole Hill Township, Rebecca RUSCOE is head of her household. she is listed as being 40 years of age. In her household is a daughter margaret RUSCOE age 25, a son Joseph RUSCOE age 11, Jane RUSCOE age 5, a granddaughter Ann E. RUSCOE age 5, and a grandson Archie RUSCOE age 1. In the 1900 Census of Chesterfield County, Cole Hill Township, Rebecca ROSCOE is head of her household. His age is not given. Her marital status is single. Listed in her household is a daughter, Virginia ROSCOE age 25 and a granddaughter Ann E. ROSCOE age 25. In the 1910 Census of Chesterfield County, Cole Hill Township, Rebecca ROSCOE is listed as head of her household. She is 65 years old and single. She has been the mother of 4 children, 2 of which are living. In her household are a daughter Virginia ROSCOE age 35, a granddaughter Elizabeth ROSCOE age 29, and a great granddaughter Maggie ROSCOE age 8. All are reported to be single. In the 1920 Census of Chesterfield County, Cole Hill Township, Rebecca ROSCOE is head of her household. She is reported to be a single, white, female age 77. In her household is a daughter, Jennie ROSCOE age 48 single, a granddaughter Lizzie ROSCOE, and a great granddaughter, Maggie age 18 single. The Index of South Carolina Death Records show that Rebecca ROSCOE was 80 years of age when she died in 1923. Her daughter Margaret (Maggie) was probably the mother of Ann Elizabeth ROSCOE 9Lizzie). Ann Elizabeth ROSCOE was the mother of Maggie (Margaret) ROSCOE. Josephine may have died before 1880. Margaret apparently died after 1880 but before 1900. This left only two children, Joseph ROSCOE and Virginia (Jennie or Jane) ROSCOE. It is believed that Joseph ROSCOE's full name was William Joseph RASCOE and that he was born October 1, 1868 in Chesterfield County. He married Kitty Purvis about 1888 and moved to Coffee County Alabama between 1897 and 1899 where he died on June 3, 1930. It seems that Rebecca or her daughters or granddaughter never married but all had children that carried the RASCOE or ROSCOE sur-name. Rebecca RASCOE may have had a brother named Joseph Franklin ROSCOE (1842-1917). They probably had a sister named Effie ROSCOE. It is possible but yet unproven that Rebecca, Joseph Franklin, and Effie ROSCOE were illigetimate children or Minda RASCOE and a man, possible Indian, named Joe Johnson. If this is so, then they had other siblings, Oliver, William Riley, Marie, Rachel, Elizabeth, and John RASCOE (Roscoe) all of Chesterfield County, SC. Minda RASCOE (Mindu Roscoe) may have been the first wife of John RASCOE of Marlboro County, SC, who left her and married Lucinda "Lucy" Clark. This has not yet been proven. John and Lucy RASCOE had at least five children, Mary Ann RASCOE, John R. RASCOE, Harris RASCOE, George Washington RASCOE, and Elizabeth RASCOE. Most of these went by the sur-name ROSCOE. I need help putting all these RASCOE/ROSCOE in their appropriate family grouping and identifying how they are related to each other. Also in identifying unknown spouses, and fathers of children. Other family sur-names associated with the Roscoe families are: Brigman, Cassidy, Cook, Goodale, Grooms, Crowley, Henderson, Sellers, Dunn, English, McDaniel, McBride, Justice, Caulder, Steen, Turner, Chavis, Thomas, Gulledge, Brown, Linby, Bowen, Burr, Peavey, Winburn, Selph, Knight, Griggs, Rivers, Gainey, Freeman, Polson, Clark, and possibly several other yet unidentified.

James R. Rasco 1/18/99
I wish to correspond with anyone having information of a genealogical nature on the ROSCOE families of Chesterfield County, SC. Will exchange information I have gathered with any Roscoe descendants or other persons researching this family. Delilah ROSCOE and Riley ROSCOE appear with Manda (apparently their mother), Rachel, Rebecca, Marie, Margaret, Josephin and several other unmarried females with children named Roscoe. Later Joseph Franklin ROSCOE appears. He was born about 1842 and died in Chesterfield County March 24, 1917. He was married to Ruey Jane CASSIDY February 28, 1869. Ruey Jane was born about 1847 and died in 1929. They are buried in Roscoe/Cassidy Cemetery near Patrick, SC. Their children were:

Joseph F. ROSCOE served in the 21st SC Infantry, Company "C" during the War Between the States. He had a sister named Rebecca Ann ROSCOE born February 8, 1841, died Feb. 8, 1923. May have also had sisters names Margaret and Effie. His death certificate states that he was adopted and did not show his parents names. Family traditions states that he was a son of a ROSCOE female and an Indian named Joe Johnson. Can anyone help me with his ancestors?

Also, Rebecca ROSCOE was born sometime between 1836 and 1843 depending on which age you except from the censuses and her death record. She died February 8, 1923. From the census records she appears to have had at least four children:

Who were the parents of this Rebecca ROSCOE? Who was the father of her children?

Also, need information on the family of William Riley ROSCOE. He was born about 1830 in South Carolina. He first appears in the 1850 census of Chesterfield County and was still living in 1900. His first wife was Julie (surname unknown) but possibly COOK or CROSS. His second wife was Isabelle (surname unknown). From the censuses of 1850 through 1900 it appears that William Riley ROSCOE had ten children:

Who was the parents of William Riley ROSCOE? Woule like to correspond with any of his descendants or anyone researching this family.

Also, need proof of the parents of Oliver ROSCOE. He first appears in Chesterfield County in the 1850 census as a twenty six year old white male laborer born in South Carolina. In his household is Caroline ROSCOE age 18 (assume his wife), Mindu ROSCOE age 60 (assume his mother) and Rachel ROSCOE age 17 (assume his sister). Oliver ROSCOE is still living when the 1900 census was taken. According to information in that census, he was born in March of 1824 and had been married 56 years. Caroline his wife was also still living and her birth is given as October 1828. From information in the census from 1850 through 1900 it would appear that the children of Oliver ROSCOE were:

Oliver ROSCOE's wife Caroline's maiden surname may have been STEEN. Oliver may have had the following siblings: Elizabeth ROSCOE born about 1820, Jane ROSCOE born about 1822 married a MINDER, Marie born about 1830, William Riley ROSCOE born about 1830, married twice Julia and then Isabelle, Rachel ROSCOE born about 1833, Rebecca ROSCOE born about 1836, may have married Joseph JOHNSON. Most of the female Roscoes appear to have had children that carried the surname ROSCOE as well but no indications of a male head of household in the census. Oliver ROSCOE served in the 1st SC Reg., Co. "C" during the War Between the States. His wife applied for a widows pension in 1901. Would like to correspond and exchange information with any descendants or others researching this branch of the ROSCOE family.

My address is James R. Rascoe, 2000 Alejo del Sur, Harveym LA 70058-2901. Telephone number (504) 367-4507.

He married Effie McDUFFIE about 1836, born Sept 7, 1815 in Anson County, NC, died March 16, 1906 in Cheraw, SC, buried in Mt. Olivet Church Cemetery. I have decent information from my family from them on, but have no information as to their ancestors. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

I am searching for known children of John Joseph BRANTLEY (b. 1831, d. ?) married Levinia "Vinnie" WATSON abt. 1860 (b. abt 1839). Child of "Vinnie" by first marriage was Albert Evander HORN, 1858-1929. Children of John and Vinnie were Jefferson Davis Brantley 1862-1938, Narcissus Alonia BRANTLEY 1863-1952. All of the above were born in Cheraw, Chesterfield County, SC, and the children lived in Ararat, Choctaw County, Alabama with the support of the family of William M. Hurst and Mary Elizabeth Steinwinder. Other children of John and Vinnie were Hampton BRANTLEY, John BRANTLEY, Albert BRANTLEY, William BRANTLEY, Frank BRANTLEY and Levinia or Louisa BRANTLEY, all born between 1860-1972. Who helped these children and where? The Brantley's left Cheraw to go to Alabama, Tennessee, or Georgia. It is believed that something happened to separate the children to be raised by others, who and where? Any information will be greatly appreciated and I will be glad to exchange information.

I am interested in the surname WATSON - particularly Albert Citney WATSON. This is the information I have so far: Unit: Captain Kelly's Company, South Carolina Light Artillery (Chesterfield Artillery) Enlisted at Cheraw, SC Aug. 25, 1861 at 17. Paroled in Greensboro, NC on May 1, 1865. Served with James Kelly and after war, went to Smith Co. Texas and married his sister Susan. A.C. is buried next to Susan in Dover Cemetery, Smith Co. Texas. He married, after Susan died, Ariadne Whitaker. On the 1860 Chesterfield South Carolina census there is the following: Watson, Zilpha 41 F Farmer b. NC Watson, Lametta 19 F Deaf Idiot b. SC Watson, Albert 15 M b. SC Watson, Louisa 9 F b. SC Possibly Albert left home and lied about his age to enter the Army? I know there was another Albert WATSON from SC in the War but he was killed. Any help would be appreciated.

For a number of years I have been stymied as to the parents of two brothers, Britton and Hardy WEEMS and their sister, Rebecca. They ended up in Claiborne County, MS, by 1820, but had been in TN where Britton and Hardy both served in the War of 1812. Recently, someone suggested that their father might be Thomas Scott WEEMS. I know he was on the 1790 census for Cheraw District, SC, and appears on the 1800 census for Chesterfield, County (although the printed list shows Scot WEYONS, the microfilm shows clearly Tho Scot WEYMS). I know the records of Chesterfield County, SC, were destroyed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking for information on John YOUNG and Samuel CARTER and their families who are said to have migrated from Chesterfield, SC to Pontotoc County, MS about 1840 in a wagon train along with several other families from the area, i.e., Parnell's. John YOUNG married Sara CARTER, Samuel's daughter. Also with them were John's sister, Nancy YOUNG, and her husband Moses Wiseman Roberts and their children. Perhaps these are all in the 1830 Chesterfield County Census? Do you have any information on a wagon train leaving about this time? Any information you might be able to give me on these families will be greatly appreciated.
