BRINSON, BRUNSON, FAIRCLOTH, HARDEE posted by Marion B. McGee on Sunday, July 25, 1999

I just found a death certificate for Harriett Caroline Faircloth, b. 2/3/1853, Horry Co., Sc, d. 4/18/1927, Horry Co, SC, married 1/6/1869 to William James Hardee, b. 4/28/1848, d. 9/14/1927. The death certificate, signed by her youngest son, E.C. [Edgar Cornelius] Hardee named Harriett's father as Edward Faircloth and her mother as Jane Brunson [Brinson]. I found Edward and Jane in the 1850 Horry Co., SC Census listed as follows: 933 FAIRCLOTH Edward 25 M Farmer 933 FAIRCLOTH Jane 22 F 933 FAIRCLOTH no name 2 F However, I can find no record of Edward and Jane in the 1860 Horry Co., SC, or Columbus Co., NC Census. Does anyone have additional information on this family? siblings of Harriett (obviously, the 2-year old unnamed child in the 1850 Census is an older sister of Harriett as Harriett was not born until almost 3 years after the 1850 census)? parents of Edward Faircloth or Jane Brunson [Brinson]. From the 1840 and 1850 census, it appears that James and Mary Brunson are probably the parents of Jane and that Joel Faircloth may be the father of Edward. Would appreciate any help
