ELAM, ARCHER, PHILLIPS - Looking for info on Richard and Sarah (ARCHER) ELAM, who were married in Chesterfield Co. ca 1739. Does anyone know where they lived? Their actual marriage date? I am descended from a Martin ELAM, who I think was their son. He married Mary PHILLIPS in 1775 in Lunenburg Co. VA and moved to Chester Co. SC in the autumn of 1790. Richard and Sarah ELAM had a son named Martin who was born ca 1755 and a son George born ca 1771. My Martin ELAM was about the right age and lived near a George ELAM in Chester Co. SC. Also, my Martin named his second son Richard and his second daughter Sarah. So, there seems to be some circumstantial evidence that my Martin ELAM was the son of Richard and Sarah. I'd appreciate any help with this puzzle.

HALL - We are attempting to find my husband's ancestors in Chesterfield Co. We have a copy of a land patent dated Sept. 1755 showing John Hall paid 40 shillings for 400 acres of land bordering Flournoy on one side and Welch on another side. Since we are pretty certain my husband's gt grandfather was born in 1813 near Petersburg, Chesterfield Co., it also seems very possible that this John HALL is part of our family. Can you possibly give us any info on this John HALL or John Clay HALL b 1813? We are also checking on Green HALL who is shown on the 1820 Chesterfield Co. census as being HOH, 16 to 26, and having another 16 to 26 male living in the house. One of my husband's great uncles was named John Green Hall, son of John Clay HALL. We have much info and are willing to share. Betty H. bah@lcc.net
