Searching for a connection (marriage) of Mr. Black to Miss Gibson, who is possibly a daughter of Gideon Gibson of PeeDee, ca. 1769/1770. Their first child was named George Gabriel b. 1770 prob. after renowned George Gabriel Powell of that area. I was in SC for a week of research in June but found nothing. I know many records no longer exist. Could anyone offer a bit of advice about searching Florence and Georgetown areas? Thanks. May write to 406 Hospital Rd, Apt 14, Winchester, TN 37398.

Looking for information to verify that our BLACKWELL line in TN and MS came from the Georgetown area. My 2nd great grandfather is Thomas Michael (T.M.) BLACKWELL, who was a Methodist minister and a physician. From the family Bible we know he was born in SC. The T.M. BLACKWELL Bible lists the following: Thomas BLACKWELL m. 18 May 1786 Mary DURHAM. (We think that this Thomas was s/o Samuel BLACKWELL b. 1735 Georgetown and lived on a plantation near Cedar Swamp and Black Mingo Creek near Kingstree, Williamsburg Co, SC). The Bible also lists Thomas BLACKWELL, Jr. (s/o Thomas and Mary) m. 5 March 1812, SC Mary Elizabeth 'Eliza' GAUSE . (We know that Eliza d. bef. 1836 because she is listed as deceased in the will of her father in Brunswick Co., NC that year.) Thomas, Jr. remarried and was living in Lauderdale County, TN during the Civil War as documented in the journal kept by his son, Thomas Michael 'T.M.' during the war). The Bible listed T.M. b. 12 February 1813 SC d. 9 September 1865, Houston, Chickasaw County, MS m. 2 March 1842 Lauderdale Co., TN, Agnes Lenora Carolina RICE right after the war ended. Also in the Bible is an obituary for the Rev. Michael Joseph BLACKWELL printed in an 1869 Methodist publication. It states that he was born in SC in 1800. (This Michael was the son of Michael Joseph and the grandson of Samuel BLACKWELL mentioned above. This leads us to believe that T.M. BLACKWELL was the nephew of the Rev. Michael Joseph BLACKWELL in the obituary in the Bible.)

Seeking Info on a male BREAKER who reportedly died in Georgetown. No first name. Original BREAKER came from Germany to Charleston, Goose Creek before Revolution. He had three sons Lewis F, Breaker, Jacob Breaker, 'John'?. (original Breaker...George...) Family moved to Camden, and some from there to Florida. Several were well known Baptist Preachers. My Grandfather, William Dudley Breaker, the son of Capt. William Lewis Breaker, seaman of Key West Fla. and Mystic, Ct. His Father Capt. John William (John William Henry) Breaker, born Camden, SC Son of Jacob Breaker and daughter wife Susan. Some of family are buried in the Chapel of Ease cemetery, Goose Creek. Susan was buried next to William Lewis. Since my great Grandfather was William Lewis Breaker, I wonder if there is a connection here. Sorry no real dates . I think there may be one more generation of Jacobs wedged in between Jacob and John Jacob??? I am a 77 year old woman, but will track down some dates if someone else needs them and/or we are able to tie some of this family together.
