BASS
Looking into my paternal grandmothers background. Her maiden name was BASS; father Thomas and grandfather (my great-great) Nathaniel or Nathan, all of Plattsville WI. Probably Nathaniel was born to a Nathaniel or Nathan of Barren County KY. Heading sourthward . I learn from genealogist in Glasgow KY that the BASS "tribe" arrived Barren Co KY in time for adult males and/or heads of households to be represented in 1810 and 1820 censuses, but none in 1830 census. Only clue to origins is single reference to probate of a will of decedent in Baltimore MD filed by one of the KY Basses indicating origin in the "Union District of South Carolina". KY genealogist states they were "certainly Baptists." Does anyone have any clue as to the origin of these heads of household listed in KY censuses of 1810 and 1820: Nathaniel or Nathan BASS, Metheldred BASS, Philamon BASS, Isaac BASS, Elizabeth BASS. These folk appeared to move more or less together to KY and then, from KY to---probably IN of IL. A Phillemon BASS was listed in Union County in 1790 and 1800.

BECKHAMS
Searching for other descendants and information about JOHN BECKHAM, SR. and his wife ELIZABETH "LIBBY" HENDERSON BECKHAM. JOHN & ELIZABETH were married 12 August, 1761, in Granville Co., NC. They were in Union County, SC, by at least 10 July, 1768, when their daughter, MARY "POLLY" "MOLLY" BECKHAM was born. MARY married JAMES CLAYTON STRIBLING, 11 Nov., 1787. According to "Union County Heritage, 1981," #676, JOHN BECKHAM was one of the Revolutionary War Soldiers buried in Union County. I assume that another of their children was JOHN BECKAM, JR. According to our family legend documented in letters written 1900-1905, CLAYTON STRIBLING was scalped by Tories during the American Revolution, and left to die. The Tories expected whoever found his body to believe that Indians had scalped him. MARY BECKHAM heard that her sweetheart, had been wounded. With a slave she swam a river to rescue CLAYTON, to bring him back to her home, and to nurse him back to a healthier condition--although he never fully recovered.

BELLEW / MIZE
I'm seeking any information on Isiah Bellew, who, according to census records, was born in Union County, SC in 1793. However, I have been told by older relatives that Isiah/Isaiah and a brother (possibly named Josiah) came to SC from Ireland. Also, these older relatives have said that they have heard the name Hez or Hezekiah and thinks that he may have been Isiah's father. 1820 census records of Union County, lists in Isiah's household, 1 male and 1 female, between ages 16 and 26. Isiah was in Hall County, GA in 1830, in Newton County, GA in 1840, and in St. Clair County, AL in 1850, with a Saul Mize, age 81, in the Bellew household. Mize researchers believe that Isiah married Christianna/Chrysanna, a daughter of Saul. Any bits of information on the Bellew (Belue) and/or Mize names will certainly be appreciated, including names of Isiah's parents.

BOBO / DANNER
I believe my gg-grandparents were once slaves of the white Bobos. It appears that a man named Barham BOBO or Sampson BOBO brought my gg-grandparents, Edward (Ed) and Lou DANNER to Mississippi from SC in the 1850s. My ancestors chose the name DANNER, and I haven't figured out where the name came from. Since my gg-grandfather was born in SC, I believe that one possibility is that Ed DANNER or his parents were once slaves of some white DANNERS of SC, and when he became a free man, he chose the name DANNER instead of BOBO.

I was wondering have you run across any persons with the surname DANNER living in Union County, SC. The BOBOs came from the Spartanburg, Laurens, and Union County areas, and I was wondering were there any persons (Black or White) with the surname DANNER living in the same area. Thank you very much.

Seeking marriage date or records of WILLIS BOBO (ca 1782) and DELILAH SIMPSON (ca 1784), who may have belonged to Padgett's Creek Baptist Church. I was told 'an implied record' exists in Union Co., SC Estate Files, Box 2, package 40.

BURGESS
Looking for husband of Trinity BURGESS b. abt 1823 d. 16 Sep 1899, buried at Grassy Pond Church Cemetery, Cherokee Co. I have located Trinity BURGESS on the 1850 Census in Union Co. as head of house with children: James E. and Lumuel I. On the 1860 Census James and Lemuel Burgess was listed with a William Bevis. While a "Twin" BURGESS (whom I believe is Trinity) was listed with a Felix BUREGSS next door. I have checked several marriage books for SC. I have hit a dead end on this line because I've been unable to locate a spouse for Trinity. Any information on the BURGESS line would be helpful. Thanks.

BURNS, Robert Sr
I am looking for information re: Robert Burns Sr (b. 1733 in Amelia Co,VA, d. 1798 in Union Co, SC). He had 7 sons, 2 of whom fought in the Revolutionary War: Benjamin, David Jr (1755-1836, m. Mary), Robert, John (1760-1843), Joseph, James (d. 1829) and Massey. One of the 7 brothers is believed to be the father of Jeremiah, Joseph and Stephen Burns. I am a descendant of Jeremiah and if we can prove this relationship we will have traced our family back to Scotland. Any info you have to help with this missing link will be greatly appreciated!
