I am looking for info from Chesterfield County, SC; Morven (Anson County) NC; Richmond County, NC, on the following:  Thomas Calhoun ADAMS, Thomas ADAMS, Jesse Eugene ADAMS, Ruth BRIGMAN, Eli BRIGMAN, Sara Francis DEES (Deese), and Alice RAINWATER.  Many thanks.

Does anyone have information on AGGERTON's that were descended from Thomas AGERTON, Sr.  Thomas AGERTON moved to Chesterfield County from Cumberland County, NC, sometime before 1820.  Thank you.

Can anyone give me any information about this ALSOBROOK family?  Anyone known who Willis Wall ALSOBROOK's father was?  Anyone know what became of this son, William ALSOBROOK?  1850 Chesterfield County Census, page 167, b. dw 1956: Willie W. ALSOBROOK, 58, farmer, 8000, SC; Elizabeth P. 38 female, NC; Franklin L. 23 male, farmer, SC; William 16 male, SC; Jane Powell 24 female, SC.  Thanks.

Our great-great grandfather, William M. ALSOBROOK, is listed in the 1850 Dyer County, TN, and 1860 Carroll Parish LA Censuses.  Two out of three censuses show William M. ALSOBROOK born abt. 1831, born in SC.  In 1850, he was in Dyer County, TN, with his bride, Sue Ann (Snow), living with a Pitts family.  A search of GenWeb shows there was an ALSOBROOK in Chesterfield County in 1850.  I am hoping this is either my William's father or a sibling.  The census index lists only a Mary ALSOBROOK, an R.G. ALSOBROOK, and a W.W. ALSOBROOK in the 1830 SC Census and all three are in Chesterfield District.  Any information on these Alsobrooks would be appreciated.

  • NICHOLSONLinda Jean Nicholson MacKenzie, 3/04/2000

Seeking information regarding Donald NICHOLSON, Merchant, who died in Cheraw, Chesterfield County, SC, on 5 February 1823.  He had a brother, John NICHOLSON, who died in Prince Edward Island, Canada ca. 1820, both probably born in Scotland.  Have probate records relating to both.  Would like to exchange information.  Thanks.

I am researching the William McKay family tree and found several ancestors that were related to NICHOLSON's.  The family Bible that is one of my primary sources contains the following passage:  "the Nicholsons came to America in 1775...landed in Wilmington and settled in North Carolina near Fayetteville.  From there they moved to Chesterfield District South Carolina.  They were originally from Invocrarra (sp?) in Scotland."  The relatives that bear Nicholson middle names were Angus Nicholson McKay (b. February 10, 1813) and in the next generation, Hugh Nicholson McKay, second son of John Andrew McKay and Mary Jane Postell (b. April 21, 1843).  The McKays migrated from Rowan County and Richmond County, NC, around 1775, and settled in Chesterfield County, SC.  It is possible that they were either traveling with the Nicholson's when they migrated or inter-married early in the 1800's.  I have reconstructed much of the McKay family history from 1774 to present, but the Nicholson's are a big unknown.  Your help would be greatly appreciated.

He left a widow, Annie Belle Hammond Patrick, and four small children.  

The second great-grandparent is William D. BROWN, who died abt. 1890, and was buried in Chesterfield.  His mother's name was Margaret BROWN; his widow was Georganna Gainey BROWN.  His mother died after his death.  I have been to Chesterfield and searched records for both John PATRICK and William D. BROWN (and Margaret 'Peggy" Brown) but found nothing.  If anyone has any info on either of these people, I would greatly appreciate your sharing with me.  Thanks.

  • PURVIS - Laurel Francis, 5/21/2000

I am looking for information on George PURVIS born in Chesterfield County, SC, and married to Caroline McRaney about 1830.  I think his mother's first name was Rachel and she was originally from Wales.  I will appreciate any help you may have.

Can anyone assist me in identifying the parents of Oliver ROSCOE and his siblings?  Oliver was born about 1824 in South Carolina according to the censuses. He first appears on the 1850 census as head of household and is listed on the 1860, 1870, 1880, and 1900 censuses.  He served in the S.C. 1st Infantry CSA during the Civil War.  His widow applied for a CSA pension in 1901.  He was married to Caroline "Linnie" Steen about 1844.  Oliver's mother may have been named Mindu or Minda.  There was an older woman named Mindu Rascow enumerated in his household in the 1850 census.  He may have had a brother named Riley RASCO or William Riley RASCO who is also a head of household in the 1850 census and later censuses of Chesterfield County.  Oliver may have also had sisters named Elizabeth, Rachel, Marie, and Rebecca and possible another brother named John.  Depending on which census you read, the surname of this family is sometimes spelled Rascow, Rascoe, Rasco, Ruscoe, and Roscoe.  

It has been suggested and placed in the Roscoe Family File at the Hartsville Genealogical Library that Oliver was a son of a John RASCOE of Marlboro County and that this John RASCOE left his first family and had a second family by a Lucinda or Lucy Clark in Marlboro County.  Other than the notations of this possibility, I have seen no real proof that this is so.

I would appreciate hearing from and exchanging information with any descendants or persons have any genealogical data on any of the above mentioned persons.  Any help will be appreciated.
