    I am trying to obtain the ancestry of grandfather, James Baxter Hunter born 1891 in Chesterfield County, South Carolina.  His parents are suppose to be James Hunter and Elizabeth Funderburk who died shortly after his birth and he was raised by Wesley Hunter on a farm near the junction of Chesterfield, Lancaster and Union Counties.  Unfortunately, he did not share any details of his early life with his children.  I have reviewed copies of the Census and cannot find his parents; but do notice Hunters showing up in one census and not another.  How accurate is the census data for Chesterfield County for the period 1840 thru 1900?  Any suggestions that would assist me in my quest of my Hunter family would be appreciated.

  • SELLERS - Martin Davis Graves, 6/10/02
    Looking for ancestor information about Cynthia or Syntha or Cintha Sellers, born about 1832.  Found in 1850 Chesterfield Co., SC census, living with the Loyd Jordan family, many guess that Mrs. Jordan (Rosanna) was her sister.  Cynthia married Benjamin Bennett Graves in Montgomery Co., NC.  She returned to Chesterfield Co. when he died during the Civil War.  She is found in the 1870 Chesterfield Co., SC census with the children.  Cynthia died 1915 in Chesterfield Co., SC, with her father listed as Joe Sellers on the death certificate.  Question:  I do not know anything about parents other than the bit about Joe Sellers. Any help on records that help with father or mother names would be appreciated.

  • THREATT - John Threatt, 3/16/01
    The 1850 SC census for Chesterfield County, SC shows the following Threat living in the household of Mark Deas, age 28, and Rebecca, age 48:  John A. Threat, 19, Pete S. Threat, 16, and Benjamin F. Threat, 4.  I am trying to find a connection between Deas and Threat.  I believe, because of age on this census, this may be John A. Threatt who later married Harriett Knight

    My speculation is that for the 1850 census, 3 Threatts were working for Room and Board and infant care on the widow Rebecca Deas farm, or Rebecca could have been a widow, Rebecca Threatt, after marriage to unknown Deas.  Any familiar with this family?  Any information appreciated.

    REPLY TO BEN KNIGHT:  5/31/01 - Jill Perry  - Subject:  Mary Threatt King - I am also a greatgrandchild of Mary Threatt and John E. Knight  and would like to exchange info.  Please forward my e-mail address to him if you can do so.  Try the website, lots of Threatts are searching.

  • THREATT / BURR - Carolyn Threatt, 2/07/01
    While visiting a cemetery in Chesterfield, SC in 1997, I copied down some names of some of those buried close to my husband's father, DeFonce Threatt 1894-1937.  The parents of DeFonce, Sr. were buried alongside his grave, Julius A. Threatt 1860-1929 and Emma S. White Threatt 1861-1944.

    Of those names, one listing was for John D. Burr 1849-1886 and it reminded me I had seen the name Walter Burr as half-brother in the obituary for DeFonce Threatt (There also other Burr interments.)

    The same day, my husband and I noticed some sidewalks in Chesterfield had names on them.  One name was Emma Burr Threatt and one was John D. Burr.

    Does anyone have information on this family of Emma Burr Threatt and John D. Burr I would be very happy to share information with anyone.  Thank you.

    In 1925 there was a Watts family reunion held in Taylorville, NC.  According to a clipping from the Pageland Journal, there were several Watts from Pageland (Chesterfield Co.) who attended.  Two people who were not Watts also attended.  They were Lonnie Blakeney and Drue Byrd.  I would like some help in identifying these 2 people.  I am sure they are connected to the Watts family or descend from female Watts.  According to the clipping, the reunion was held on an old Watts homeplace that was then reduced to a pasture.  By now it is probably a parking lot!  Does anyone know of the connection between the Chesterfield Co Watts family and Taylorville, NC?
