  • CAMPBELL - Angela Campbell, 6/22/08
    I am looking for information for Tafton Blease Campbell, born May 8, 1911 in Chesterfield County, SC.  I have no information on any brothers, sisters, or parents.  Any help would be appreciated.

  • COPELAND - Susan Copeland Wier, 9/02/07
    I am trying to find information on Elizabeth Coleman and Moses Copeland.  John Pigg Martin, that we have traced to Georgia, and married Easter McKinley, whose daughter, Susannah Martin, married my great great great grandfather, Thomas Tullos.  Their daughter, Malissa Caroline Tullos, married Thomas Coleman Copeland.  Supposedly, Thomas Coleman Copeland's mother was Elizabeth Coleman and married Moses Copeland.  Elizabeth and Moses were supposedly married in 1809, in Chesterfield County, SC.  They moved to Mississippi and we can find them up to about 1835-39.  I am trying to find any info on Elizabeth and Moses.  Also, I am trying to see if they moved backed to the Carolinas as we can find nothing on them after 1840.

  • EUBANKS - Teresa Gray, 9/25/07
    My ancestors originated from Pageland, SC. I am in search of records on slaves and slave owners.  My grandmother's last name is Miller, but her father was a slave owner by the name of Henry Hughbanks or Eubanks.  Any direction would be appreciated.

  • EVANS - Chastity Etheridge, 9/25/07
    I am looking for any information on James M. Evans, born about 1840 in South Carolina, and his wife, Sarah E. (maiden name unknown).  I have no additional information about them except that they are found in the 1880 Little River County, AR, census record with children and one of the children is named Berry who was born in AR, but other children that were born in LA.  I have found other Evans family in Chesterfield County, SC, with Berry names also and went to Winn Parish, LA.  James and Sarah's son, James Thomas Evans, married a woman by the name of Susan Fleniken and they were married in Desoto Parish, LA, in 1857, and they are found on the 1860 Natchitoches Parish, LA, census records, which is the Parish between Desoto Parish and Winn Parish, LA.  I am pretty sure that James M. Evans and Sarah E. married in SC, as they were both listed as being born in SC.  All my Evans/Phelps families eventually moved to Bowie County, TX, where there are other Evan's families that came from SC.  I'm pretty confident that all these Evan's families are somehow connected but still trying to find the connection.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.

  • GAINEY - Craig Lyles, 9/28/07
    I am trying to obtain any information I can on Matthew Gainey, who was listed in Chesterfield County in the 1820 census.  I believe he may be one of my great great great grandfathers.  He was probably born in the 1790's in South Carolina, probably Chesterfield County.  He apparently moved to Wilkinson County, Georgia in the 1820's because he is listed there in the 1830 and 1840 censuses.  Besides his birth date, parents, and children, I am particularly interested in the maiden name of his wife.  Her first name was Mary.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • GOODWIN/GOODEN - Kristi Jeffords, 3/26/08

  • KNIGHT - Blake E. Relle, 12/06/07
    I am looking for the parents of Nathaniel Knight who married Nancy McMillian.  Nathaniel Knight was born between 1785 and 1790 and Nancy McMillian was born between 1790 and 1795.  They were both born in Chesterfield County, SC.  Nathaniel Knight and Nancy McMillian had the following children that I know of:

        Catherine Knight - born 1828 in SC
        Mary Knight - born 1831 in SC
        Elizabeth Knight - born 1833 in SC
        Thomas Knight - born 1835, 1836 or 1837
        Emma Knight - born 1833 or 1840 in SC
        Edward Knight - born 1842 in SC
        William H Knight - born 1843 in SC

    I have heard that Nathaniel Knight could be the son of Aaron Knight.

  • KNIGHT - Brenda Knight Smith, 8/05/07
    I am looking for the possible parents for Moses Knight, born 1763 in Brunswick County, VA.  Moses was living in SC at the start of the revolution, and enlisted in the Army in Richmond County, NC in 1779.  By 1800, he and wife, Frances, were living on the Pee Dee at Wolfpit, NC, on the state line.  I believe this family may have been spread through North and South Carolina in Anson & Richmond Counties, and Marlboro and Chesterfield Counties.  DNA traces this line to the Surry, Sussex, isle of Wight area of Virginia to the 1600's.  I need family Bible or other family records to unravel this family.  There are sever other Moses Knights in the area.

    Moses and William Knight founded Knight's Chapel in 1790.  Knight's Chapel is now Hew Hope United Methodist Church on US #1 in Marlboro County.  Moses' daughter, Anna McIntosh, and family have tombstones at the front of the cemetery. 

    Moses' living children at the time of his death in 1836 were Anna McIntosh (Daniel), Elizabeth Curtis (Caleb), John A. Knight (living in Marlboro County), Frances Britt (Culliver).  Other children had apparently died.  Who were they?

    DNA testing will help prove which of these many Knight families in this area are tied together.  Knight Family Project is on FamilyTreeDNA.
