M. Brock Larsen 29 Mar. 1998

Am looking for a marriage of a Francis Brock (c1760 - Oct 1820) to Martha "Patsy" Ray about 1782. They lived Surry Co. NC about 1784 and Union/York SC 1787 through 1792, but family could have been in SC earlier. Francis Brock was probably the son of an Elias Brock, but there were several about the same time period, and we have been unable to separate them. The Elias who d. 1795 in Union Co. SC could be father or brother. Other brothers were probably Charles, certainly Richard and Evan Brock - all on record in Union Co. Charles died Union Co. SC. Richard and Evan went to Kentucky. Evan died there. Richard and Francis went on to Ohio and then to Indiana. Thanks for all your work posting marriages to the web. It is wonderful to do some of this research at home!

I am looking for any information of my ancestors, JONATHAN KUYKENDALL father of ANNA KUYKENDALL (born 1799 in York Co, SC. died 1850). Anna married abt 1826 to ABNER CARROLL (born York Co.SC, Oct 3, 1798). I know that they had least two children born in York Co, SC -- Sarah E. Carroll who married, Nelson Tarver and, my ancestor, ABNER MINOR CARROLL. I've never been able to find much on Anna's family and would love to know who her mother was and more about the KUYKENDALL's. Abner CARROLL left SC and moved to Navarro Co. Texas but it seems the route to Texas took them through TN and MS.

J.D. was born Nov. 11, 1846 (SC or NC) and died JU 5 1914 in Nacogdoches, Texas. Even the smallest bit of info would be appreciated.

I'm trying to find out how to get a copy of an obituary for my uncle, Parks Smith, that died in Aug 1967. He was living in York, SC. I don't know where else to find out so I thought would see if you could point me in the right direction. I live in the state of Maine and can't get to York myself. Any ideas you may have would be very much appreciated. Thank you for your help and for your time.
