SARVIS posted by Doris Newton on Wednesday, April 7, 1999

I am trying to research a John T. Sarvis that lived in NC and SC He was part Indian he was related to the Johnson's , and he was supposed to have a half brother who's last name was Todd. The Johnsons were either the grandparents or they were supposed to have adopted the Sarvis's. I have done nothing but run into brick walls on this one. Thank you for any help you might be able to give me. He should have been born somewhere between 1883 and 1900. Thank you very much. Doris Newton -- Gulfport , Ms.

BARKER, COOPER, LEWIS posted by Pearl Drew on Saturday, April 24, 1999

I have searched for years for my ggrandmothers people. I'm about to give up. Anyone out there? She was born Martha Lewis, Horry County. I was told her middle name may have been Christine, she was born around 1878, married my ggrandfather Joseph Jackson Cooper before 1900 because they were living with his parents in Horry County in 1900, June, census. His parents were Charley and Emily Barker Cooper. She died in Dec. 1906, three days after my grandmother was born. Her father came and got her from Centenary, Marion County, SC where they were living, took her back to their home area and had her burried. He later married Ellen Sutton and died in 1918. She then married Corbett Prince of Horry County. There, thats my book. Please help, thanks Pearl

HARRELSON, HORTON, JERNIGAN, MILLS posted by Mildred Mills Stevenson on Sunday, May 16, 1999

Does anyone have the marriage date of Ada Jernigan (maiden name unkown) to Elias Bradley Mills of Columbus Co., N. C.? I don't know if they were married before, during of after the Civil War. As soon as Elias was released from service, they moved to Suwannee Co. Fl. Elias' father Andrew M. Mills & mother Patience Souls were already living. Ada had a daughter, Fannie Mae Jernigan, I believe, that was her name. Also, Edith Mills, daughter of George Washington Mills & Sarah Marian Horton, married a Harrelson, we think from Horry Co., S. C. She stayed in N. C. when her mother and father left after the Civil War to come to Fl. Any help, with any of the above would be greatly appreciate. Thanks.

FLOYD posted by Mark Floyd on Wednesday, May 19, 1999

I am descended from Frederick Floyd, born 1769, and moved into Horry County about 1785. His brothers were Francis Lewis, Samuel, and James. There may have been others. I have copies of articles from the Independent Republic Quarterlies addressing these men. However, the information is vaque. Like many others, I am trying to determine the parents of these men. Where they born in NC, VA or PA? Who was Frederick's wife or wives? His children are listed below: 1) Katherine Floyd born about 1790. married Samuel Garrell, Jr. I think there was another Katherine Floyd who married Samuel, Sr. 2) Samuel Floyd born 1790/1795. Moved to Mississippi. 3) James Floyd born 1791. Moved to Mississippi. 4) Nancy Ann Floyd born abt 1795. married Patrick Lewis, son of William Lewis. 5) Patience Floyd born about 1800. married Henry Garrell. Brother of Samuel, Jr.? 6) Wright Floyd born 1802. married Demaris ? 7) Anna Jane Floyd born 1805. Married Isaac Mincey. 8) William Everett Floyd born 1806. Married Martha Jane Ware,1837, in GA. moved on to MS. 9) Hardy Floyd born 1809. Married Mardlin Thompson, Moved to MS and possibly died there. 10) Mary Floyd born: one source says 1813, another says between 1790/1799. 11) Frederick Floyd, Jr born: one source says 1814, another late 1700's. This is about all the info I have on this family. I am further descended through Wright Floyd and his wife Demaris. I dont know her last name. Any information on these families will be appreciated! I will share what I have with anyone who responds. An interesting story is that Fred Jr. was a ferry keeper in Nichols and that Nancy Ann Floyd was his half-sister. This seems to indicate Fred, Sr. may have been married twice. mark
